Paul Gamblin/feedback
[DJ & Presenter of the Black & Blue Radio Show & the Heavy Mannas Show]
"How good is this version!! A real gem and a funky dancehall take of the classic "...Rudie" tune. This is a sure-fire festival winner and will feature on my shows and in my sets. This is a really sweet release. Can't wait to hear more from the T.I.M.E.C. crew. Play listed on Black & Blue / Heavy Mannas Radio and On-Line shows."

Justin Crawford/feedback
[The Unabombers]
"Very nice. This will work very well as a end of nighter for me. Chart 11."

Paul Murphy/feedback
[Afro Art]
"How do I buy one...???"

[Frederic Messent/Indamixworldwide]
"Remember David Livingstone's reggae classic '(Message To You) Rudie'? Well, that cut which would eventually be covered at the end of the seventies by UK outfit The Specials turning it onto what was know as ska at the time makes a winning return to its homeland with a brand new rendition of Grant Phabao starring Lone Ranger & Carlton Livingston (check out Phabao's dub) on T.I.M.E.C. A cut to be released on a 500 copies limited edition next March, so hurry up when it comes!"

Telekinetic Kat/review
"Oh Shit! Bastard Jazz keeps filling the void with this mind melting seven inch from Canadians Chronic Sonata. Everyday is everything I wanted it to be and more. If you love dub, buy this record. If you love downtempo, buy this record. If you love Brooklyn, buy this record! This track is bass heavy and sparse in all the right places, with the most tasteful placement of vocal snippets since Osbourne Ruddock was runnin tings. The haters will hate me for saying that, but how can I not be enthusiastic when Bastard Jazz keeps raising their own bar and pushing the surrounding music scene to bring something better for the open-minded dancefloors/living rooms. Never content to rest on the laurels of one solid side, they enlist Frenchman Grant Phabao for the always on point Bastard Jazz remix. More than overhauling the original, I imagine Grant simply introduced Chronic Sonata to Mad Professor in a sauna at a Swiss resort. They then described what they were feeling about the current state of the world and Phabao laid it down on a fat piece of tape. Just to put it over the top, check out the label design and see how things should be done. I like it. BJ, put ya lighters up!"

"Quality reggae & dub, includes a remix from grant phabao. You need a copy of this."

Bobby Ranchbuster/review
[Fact Magazine issue 12 (UK)]
"The reliable Bastard Jazz imprint throw up a limited release on seven-inch in the shape of a bastardised dub/downtempo child, which carries the mannerisms of one King Jammy at his peak. It's got a tough roots edginess compounded by well placed vocal snippets, lump hammer bass and plenty of echo, delay and reverb. A solid release that'd sound as at home on your hi-fi as on a 10k rig, benefiting from a nice, loud pressing."

Groove Distribution/review
"Hot BASTARD JAZZ 7" from CHRONIC SONATA. "EVERYDAY" explores rough and rugged dub/downtempo with live drums, a healthy heap of delay, swirling guitar and a deep bassline. On the flip GRANT PHABAO of TIMEC builds "EVERYDAY" in to a BASIC CHANNEL/RHYTHM & SOUND style dub assault. Wicked."

"I like it here... some nice soundz :"
"Yeah man... i luv this... original vibes"
"Great track! excellent production... Respects."
"Real Nice production, blessed tune. Big respect"
"Top track, great sounds and skills, enjoyed - Respect"
"Dubbed in to a 5th dimension."
"Fantastic!!!dis ya tune so wicked."
"Wicked Wicked Wicked! Inspirational vibes, setting the standard. Lovely production and nice nice atmosphere. Respect"
"!!!!!!!SUPERB!!!!!!! absolute KILLA!!! Sounds excellent in my phones!! Respex"
"Yeah this is a BOOOOM TUNE - one for the Recommended List"

Que se passe-t-il donc de bien roots en début de millénaire pourri par le retour des sons années 80? À Paris, l'été indien n'en finit plus. Alors, pour finir en beauté ce joli mois d'octobre 2005, voici un spécial "reggae, hip hop & dub", en forme de palais de la découverte et du remix. Avec quelques productions parisiennes toutes chaudes et pas encore entendues à la radio, signées de Grant Phabao, Seven Dub, les Mighty Blunts ou Professor Oz. Elles sont accompagnées de quelques récents "classiques instantanés", pour un tour du monde de la vibration roots, avec le rappeur Afro-américain albinos Brother Ali, les reggae masters de San Francisco Groundation, le russe Dj Vadim et son nouveau projet hip hop One Self (avec Blu Rum 13 et Yarah Bravo), le californien Matt Haines (alias The Rip Off Artist), les allemands de Boozoo Bajou ou Burnt Friedman avec ses Nu-Dub Players, l'anglais Biggabush (alias Lightning Head, moitié du duo Rockers Hi-Fi) ou bien les new-yorkais Chronic Sonata, remixés par Grant Phabao suite à une connection sur le web entre les labels TIMEC à Paris et Bastard Jazz à Brooklyn...

What good roots music is happening in this new millenium, rotted by the return to the 80s sounds? In Paris, the Indian summer isn't ending and we don't complain.
