Grant Phabao & Djouls - 21st Century Roots
Grant Phabao & Djouls - 21st Century Roots
(MP3 Podcast) T.I.M.E.C., 2005-10-31

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. That's why, to conclude in style this lovely month of October, we decided to offer here a special "reggae, hip hop & dub", in the form of a palace of discoveries and remixes. Including some burning Parisian productions, unheard yet on the radio, signed by Grant Phabao, Seven Dub, the Mighty Blunts or Professor Oz. They are accompanied by some recent "instant classics", for a world tour of the roots vibration, with albino Afro-American rapper Brother Ali, San Francisco reggae masters Groundation, Russian Dj Vadim and his new hip hop project One Self (with Blu Rum 13 and Yarah Bravo), Californian Matt Haines (alias The Rip Off Artist), Germaneers Boozoo Bajou or Burnt Friedman with the Nu-Dub Players, Englishman Biggabush (alias Lightning Head, half of Rockers Hi-Fi), or New-Yorkers Chronic Sonata, remixed by Grant Phabao following a connection on the Web between the TIMEC label in Paris and Bastard Jazz in Brooklyn...
