Press Release :
Grant Phabao is the french dubmeister.

Rooted in the 70's stylings of Lee Perry, King Tubby & Herbie Hancock, his trademark dubby and spacey sound is like nothing you've ever heard in the last 10 years.

After a bunch of singles and remixes for french label Pro-Zak Trax at the end of the 90's, including the worldwide pumpin' house hit-single "Tub" in 1998, he started his own label T.I.M.E.C. (along with french hitmaker Captain Déétendu & music-webmeister Djouls), producing and releasing 3 collective and thematic albums in 2004, "Time(c) To Relax", "Electronic Bossa & Psychedelic Soul Samba" & "Noëlectro", along with his own first album, "Kulchaklash", starring Jamaican legendary Studio One DJ The Lone Ranger.

2006 saw the release of a new 12 inch single, a cover of "(A Message To Your) Rudie" starring The Lone Ranger and Carlton Livingston on vocals. An EP supported and played by ROB LUIS (Tru Thoughts), TROJAN SOUND SYSTEM (BBC/6 Mix), PAUL GAMBLIN (Black & Blue Radio Show / the Heavy Mannas), JUSTIN CRAWFORD (The Unabombers), PAUL MURPHY (Afro Art), MFSB (Indamixworldwide), HENRI KOHN (Clubstar/Soul Star Records), JON FREER (Mosoul.co.uk), FAT CITY RECORDS...

Praise started to flow from the worldwide underground, the international p2p scene and a few connoisseurs, and he soon started collaborating with artists met on the Internet, swapping remixing skills worldwide.

You'll find here Grand Central Records' Jon Kennedy skanking like a Kingstonian, Bastard Jazz's Chronic Sonata in a rootsy deep dub dress, Pro-Zak Trax's Professor Oz in High-Fidelity dub, or Seattle's funkateers The Mackrosoft in a breakbeat jazz-funk stylee.

They all got remixed by Grant Phabao and they loved it. Some of them also produced some groovy remixes in exchange, with Jon Kennedy fooling with Grant Phabao & The Lone Ranger's "Ethiopia" and Tru Thoughts/Bastard Jazz's Mawglee electrifying their "Fever" cover.

In 2005, Grant Phabao launched with former Radio Nova programmer Loik Dury and TIMEC partner Djouls the cult podcast ParisDJs.com, mastering all the mixes in his glorious and unique "supersaound". A few booties were produced for this online show, we've included a pair of them here for your distorted aural pleasure.

Expect more "Grant Phabao Remixed & Remixes" to appear in DJ bags in the coming month, starting in September 2006 with the release of a new 12 inch on Pascal Rioux's Favorite Recordings imprint, and its smashing reggae remix of Lee McDonald's "We've Only Just Begun" by Grant Phabao...
