about

Paris-based, Chicago-born MC RacecaR has been living a pure hip hop life for the last two decades. He's one of the coolest hip hop cats in the French capital, relentlessly touring but in a constant state of rap, writing & rehearsing whenever he can. His flow, lyrics and friendly Native Tongues attitude got him to collaborate with more and more people, among which Paris DJs collaborators Lawkyz, on his 'The Waxidermist' project, or Etienne de la Sayette, RacecaR opens his afrojazz album 'Maputo Queens' to be released in may.

A true meeting of two worlds first happened when RacecaR met with the label's in-house producer Grant Phabao, who's radical expertise in groove got him to work with many famous musicians worldwide, from Jamaica to Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, USA, Brazil, UK, Germany and more. From there on, an ongoing special production project started, with RacecaR bringing the rhymes and Grant Phabao recording them over one of his reggae, ska, funk, jazz or afro productions… No boom bap, no maverick beats, no wonky, no wobble, all breaks, skanks, drops and more polyrhythmics. The word was : "let's turn out worlds upside down, and make something different together".

'One Free', the latest single extracted from RacecaR's upcoming 'A Healthy Obsession With Pétanque' album, sees the American MC laying a thick rap, moving on and around the beat, over a deep & dubby, slow & stripped-down early 80s dancehall style riddim from French producer and multi-instrumentalist Grant Phabao. The vibe is laidback, smokey, while tropical and hip. A pure stoner tune in the "play it again, Sam" category.
