The Blaze needed only a single EP before they decided they were ready to release their debut album, DANCEHALL. Despite the title, The Blaze are not producers of dancehall music (however there are some clear influences). The French duo have found their own specific subgenre of house music that we can’t quite place, but it’s stunningly beautiful.
Often, when introducing a new artist, we like to compare them to others, to give readers an idea of what they’re jumping into. The Blaze are unlike any musical artists we’ve encountered. Sure, there’s plenty of house music out there, but we’ve yet to come across a style so unique. It’s downtempo, with heavenly dancehall-esque vocals and melodies that are so emotive that you can literally feel your body react to them.
DANCEHALL is a journey from start to finish. It’s one of those albums that you could throw on at any moment and be pleased with your selection. The Blaze have created something breathtaking here, and we insist that you give their debut album a listen.
