After a couple of EPs, French electro duo The Blaze (Jonathan Alric and Guillaume Alric aka Mayd Hubb) announced the release of their first full-length. Dancehall is out on September 7th via Animal63. “She” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
Not to be confused with the sound specific of the Jamaican genre, Dancehall is instead a tribute to the scene itself which originated in the 1940’s. The dance hall was created from a desire to simply come together and party, at a time when the only way to listen to your favourite artist was to come together in such a way. This was a place where people lived, loved and danced. An overwhelming sense of humanity surrounds all that The Blaze create and perhaps that’s what Dancehall is, a complete reflection on said humanity.
