about

--- ABOUT THIS ALBUM - ENGLISH ---
Grant Phabao is Paris DJs' in-house producer and sound engineer, and no doubt familiar to you as France's premier reggae lord. Over nearly two decades of superb music-making, he grew to be a prime purveyor of Jamaican Soul, wether labeled "ska", "rocksteady", "reggae", etc.

After releasing albums with Jamaican legends Carlton Livingston, The Lone Ranger, The Jays or The Silvertones, and remixes for the whole planet, from George Clinton to Alice Russell, from David Byrne to Shawn Lee, from Jurassic 5 to The Beta Club… he started producing African music, working with the likes of Ebo Taylor, musicians from Fela's Egypt 80, Antibalas, The Souljazz Orchestra, Brownout or Franck Biyong. With the Paris DJs label, he managed to cross the rigid boundaries of music categorization with an astonishing quantity of high-quality productions and remixes in many styles, achieving a high-order mastery in reggae, ska and afrofunk…

Ben Hito is one hell of a graphic designer, fitting marvelously Paris DJs' "international music" approach. We really want to spread his work, and notably, make a vast and eclectic collection of vinyl with him

Thanks to the people who supported Paris DJs' second crowdfunding campaign, a new, limited edition 9 tracks vinyl LP was released in 2015. Strictly limited to a 500 copies, this collection of exclusive Grant Phabao remixes and productions is 100% Paris DJs Soundsystem-approved MASSIVE HITS, with storming afrofunk instrumentals, special blends of roots reggae and hip hop, dancefloor reggae monsters, a unique and deeply funky fusion of afrofunk with hip hop verses and cinematic reggae funk!!

--- A PROPOS DE CET ALBUM - FRANÇAIS ---
Grant Phabao vous est sans doute bien connu comme le premier "Reggae Lord" de France. Avec presque deux décennies de superbe productions musicales derrière lui, il est devenu un fournisseur de premier choix de soul jamaïcaine, qu'on l'appelle "ska", "rocksteady", "reggae", etc.

Après avoir sorti des albums avec des légendes de Jamaïque telles que Carlton Livingston, The Lone Ranger, The Jays ou The Silvertones, et des remixes pour la terre entière, de George Clinton à Alice Russell, de David Byrne à Shawn Lee, de Jurassic 5 à The Beta Club… il a commencé à produire de la musique africaine et à travailler avec des gens comme Ebo Taylor ou Franck Biyong, des musiciens de Fela Kuti, Antibalas, The Souljazz Orchestra, Brownout, etc.

Avec le label Paris DJs, il est parvenu à briser les frontières rigides des catégories musicales, avec une quantité hallucinante de productions et de remixes de haut vol, pour en définitive atteindre une maîtrise de très haut niveau en reggae, ska et afrofunk.

Ben Hito est un illustrateur incroyablement talenteux et travailleur. Son art est merveilleusement raccord avec l'approche "international music" (en Français "la sono mondiale") de Paris DJs. Nous voulons vraiment diffuser son travail, et en particulier développer une collection vaste et éclectique de sorties vinyles avec lui.

Grâce à ceux qui ont soutenu la seconde campagne de financement participatif de Paris DJs, un nouveau 33 tours a pu être édité en 2015, à 500 copies. Cette collection de productions et remixes exclusifs de Grant Phabao est composée à 100% de HITS MASSIFS approuvés par le Paris DJs Soundsystem, avec des instrumentaux afrofunk dévastateurs, des concoctions spéciales de reggae roots et de hip hop, sans oublier les tueries reggae dancefloor, une fusion unique et sacrément groovy d'afrofunk et de rimes hip hop ou un reggae funk cinématique!!
