French born DJ Gregory began his explorations into house music in the early 90s when he was making pilgrimages to New York City to soak up the city's music scene, bringing back with him the freshest dance music from the nucleus of American house. He made a name for himself as a DJ influenced by these imported beats, appearing regularly on Radio FG in collaboration with DJ Deep. Following several successful records in his fledgling production career, including his project Africanism with Bob Sinclar on Yellow Productions, Gregory set up Faya Combo as an outlet for his unique productions. Many releases from Faya Combo have striking Afro and Latin flavours, influences sustained by DJ Gregory's travels to Brazil and Angola to work with local artists in those regions.
When first released in 2003 'Faya Combo Cuts Volume 1' was a three track EP. Here, the original tracklist of 'Triby', 'Afromobile' and 'Afromobile' (Repmobile) is added to with the inclusion of two rare versions 'Afromobile'. 'Afromobile' (Basslotron) is a stripped back and tasteful bass forward edit while the layered drum rhythms of the Beatbass Mix will certainly accelerate dancefloor momentum.
