Never Play Me (Grant Phabao remix) - (6:03) 90 BPM
Here we have two tracks by Irish-French musician Doctor L (nee Liam Farrell) both remixed in impressive fashion by Grant Phabao. "Sweet Live" is a spacey, gentle reggae anthem of sorts, featuring an emotive vocal. While "Never Play Me" is stunning hushed acoustic soul that occasionally touches on John Barry territory.
Paris DJs earned themselves a serious reputation as kings of the compilation with their online mixes notching up 3.7 million (or so they say) downloads. This popularity led to them releasing many official and fully licensed themed comps. However although they've previously explored Afro tropical, psychedelic, jazz and hip-hop themes, they've never touched on funk and soul...until now. They've dug deep here too, providing 15 very different interpretations of these styles including the eerie electro-funk of "Brassa Nova", the chilled out funky hip-hop of "Return Of The Dig-Fu" and the retro analogue shuffle of "Thinkin Back".
