about

Always celebrating the end of the year with xmas mixes, best-of lists and gifts, Paris DJs has prepared a series of free EPs, gathering the best reggae reworks that have been offered on their Virtual Releases podcast in high-quality audio, starting with a 'Masters Of Soul' selection of heavyweight legends: Stevie Wonder, George Clinton, Michael Jackson and Ce-Lo Green. The EP is strictly limited to 1000 downloads, so act fast or go hunting the p2p networks later... and note that all 4 remixes have been remastered by Grant Phabao for this reissue!

Stevie Wonder's magic voice on Grant Phabao's 'new vintage' 70s reggae production works so well it's Reggae Soul at its best! Listen to 'Uptight' and let us know if everything's alright…

We then head towards th P-Funk galaxy, and George Clinton's 'U Ain't Runnin Shit' from his 'How Late Do U Have 2b B4 Ur Absent' album, skanked by Grant Phabao into a sunshine piece of psychadelicreggaesoulthang. A remix fully approved by the Dr. Funkenstein himself.

Another great Master of Soul is of course Michael Jackson, who's second single on Motown Records from way back in 1972, a pop/R&B cover of a fifties song by Bobby Day, 'Rockin Robin', gets the Grant Phabao treatment so that it's the dancehalls MJ is now rockin'!

Last on this EP but not least, Cee-Lo Green is also one highly-esteemed soul singers, even if his career is still young and if he's been kinda heading towards shiny pop territories these days. His 2004 single 'The One' was one hell of a soulful hip hop song, dressed here in classy reggae stylings by the one and only Grant Phabao...
