In the crazy world of electrical terminology a ‘brownout’ is a drop in voltage. Which is ironic since these remixes of Texan latin-funk outfit Brownout create something of a musical power surge. ParisDJs in-house producer Grant Phabao is up first and plugs his whole updated Studio One/ King Tubby ting into I Won’t Lie to nice up the wide-open spaces steel guitar vibe of the original in a soulful reggae stylee. If you fancy something a little more lively however – you’ll want some of Renegades Of Jazz‘s northern jazz/ b-boy breaks take on Flaximus which has enough charge to light up the desert.
