Grant Phabao presents RacecaR - Return Of The Dig-Fu Akale Wube Remix

Following up on Paris DJs tradition of reworking songs using only their vocal part to build a brand new intrumental to back it, Parisian Ehio-Jazz band Akalé Wubé has decided to try their organic jazz chops on an a cappela from Chicago MC RacecaR.

Originally produced by Grant Phabao as an unstoppable afro-funk-hip-hop monster, this 'Return Of The Dig-Fu (Akalé Wubé Remix)' keep its rhymes evoking the digger's lust for the vinyl rare groove, but replaces the afrofunk with some deep, smokey jazz. The soothing flute solo near the end confirms the first impression: there's a blazing sense of purpose here.

Akalé Wubé's loose vibes and RacecaR nervous wordplay fit together so nicely that more collaborations have already started to happen, in the studio and on stage. They'll be playing together tomorrow evening at Le Studio de l'Ermitage, after a first date together a few months ago. t's not a last minute warning so don't miss this joyous moment next week !
