Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1972 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 13

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.13 - 1972

1972 was a great year for music. Most 1972 albums in artists discographies are really good ones. Artists such as Bobby Gentry had many country/soul crossover hits in the US in the previous years and influenced many others. Well that's what we felt as quite obvious while preparing this selection. But don't worry, we've kept it as funky and soulful as ever - Paris DJs' style. Excepted that we added...

Akalé Wubé - Alègntayé feat. Genet Asefa (Grant Phabao Remix) (Digital Single, 2015, Paris DJs)

While discussing the possibility of releasing Akalé Wubé's sax & flute player Etienne de la Sayette's solo recordings on Paris DJs, the idea of getting Grant Phabao to put to good use his reggae-remixing skills on one of Akalé Wubé's songs arose quickly. But what about the Ethiopian horn or vocal harmonies, would they fit on a reggae groove? Well you can't really know until you try, so that's...

Grant Phabao Carlton Livingston - My Father

Grant Phabao presents Carlton Livingston - My Father (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2015)

Grant Phabao and Carlton Livingston's brand new single 'My Father' is their 10th single together, it tells the story of a son full of regrets, a bastard child who never got from his father the affection he was craving for. Phabao's new riddim is addictively bubbling, full of skanks & echo dynamics. With just a few verses Carlton shows masterfully the storyteller he is. So when are the two...

Grant Phabao presents U-Brown - Mr. DJ Let The Music Play (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2015)

U-Brown's unmistakeable deejay flow with a stylistic debt to the deejay godfather is a delectation to hear voiced and mixed with Grant Phabao at the controls. Somehow echoing U-Brown's first production in 1977, the 'Please Mr Deejay' hit by Carlton Livingston, 'Mr. DJ Let The Music Play', with its dynamic skanking and shoutouts rocks the dance hall instantly with bubbles of joy exploding from the...

Grant Phabao presents RacecaR - One Two One Two (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2015)

RacecaR started working with the French producer Grant Phabao approximatively one year ago, with a simple concept in mind: exploring some new rare grooves of reggae, ska, afrofunk, soul and jazz, on which he would try rhyming and rapping - uncharted waters in terms of tempo for a boom-bap aficionado. Here's the 4th stop of his voyage in a sea of styles. RacecaR has now to face a psychedelic funk...
