California MC Raashan Ahmad used to be the front man for the live hip-hop group Crown City Rockers (formerly known as Mission) in the 2000s. Since then he's launched a succesful solo career culminating so far in 2013 with the neo-classic 'Ceremony' album.

Early 2014 he got in touch with Paris DJs, submitting a handful of songs for the French label's jazzy hip hop compilation 'Spirituality & The Supernatural', released in the following spring. Summer 2015 while on tour in France, Raashan Ahmad came to visit and decided with Grant Phabao & Djouls to launch some ongoing collaborations… starting with a couple of reggae & ska remixes.

Extracted from his 'For What You've Lost' album released in 2010, 'Falling' is originally a crackin' piece of Dilla-esque shuffle with a great guest verse from fello Bay Area MC Gift Of Gab from Blackalicious, a dope 'I'm Good' hook from soulful singer Aloe Blacc — and the first tune from Raashan Ahmad to get the Grant Phabao rework treatment!

Dressed with a fruitful one drop riddim, all bouncy and elastic with its dynamic Grant Phabao skanking sound, 'Falling' becomes an outstanding reggae soul/hip hop smoothie, spreading its positive vibes with style.
