Blaze, a.k.a Kevin Hedge and Josh Milan the soulful house duo who constantly produce classic tunes. Full of spirituality and substance their songs touch people everywhere they play. They epitomise the sound of New York's 'Shelter' bringing it direct to us here in the UK. Possibly the most successful DJ producers and remixers of our time they have over 20 years experience. They have a discography that includes over 160 published works making it the largest produced by any single entity in the genre. Having written De'lacy's "Hideaway" and produced such legendary tunes as 'My Beat',' Do you Remember House' and are behind the current club stormer Blaze feat Barbara Tucker - Most Precious Love. It can be said that their entire sound is encapsulated in this album.
Blaze on CD1 'Its not just house music, It'll be songs in the purist's idea of blaze and songs that you wouldn't have thought blaze would be into'. Standout tracks includes the very bouncy and cheeky Three Kings feat. Jaygun and Bashy - Shake Dat Booty, Sydenham and Jerome's Sandcastles overlaid with the smooth vocals from Barbara Tucker. Also you will be blown away by Jerome Pinde - Breathe and M.A.S. Collective feat. Judy Peterson - Release Yourself (a big feel good number).
Blaze on CD2 - 'This is a collection of exclusive NEW ORIGINAL blaze tunes that have never been heard before written specifically for this project'. Listen out for Stephanie Cooke who hits us with two smooth vocals - Love Will (Unreleased Roots Mix) and What Makes the World Go 'Round. Equally as silky is 280 West feat. Diamond Temple Fly (Roots Vocal Mix). Sandy Rivera a.ka. Kings of Tomorrow hits us with Another Day and Kerri Chandler -Bar A Thym pleases the ear and was a big Miami favourite this year. The CD rounds off nicely with Blaze - Gloria's Muse (Danny Krivit Remix)and Divinity -Love Will Stay. This mix is nothing short of excellent.
This is a must have mix album for all lovers of true house music.
Kevin Hedge - 'We wrote 'Most Precious Love' in a van in Japan'.
