Music has a funny way of bringing people together, sometimes when you least expect it, Blazay the group starts like this, founder member Kevin used to run a club night called Blazay many years ago in London, so it’s a name connected with people having a great time partying to top classic tunes, that’s where the name comes from, and that’s what we want people to do. How the group was formed is a bit more interesting, early 2015 I arranged to meet a singer in Barking to discuss working together on some music, I’m originally from Ilford (Near East London, for people who don’t know) so me and this singer went to a cafe/bar to have a little chat about music, while I’m having this meeting I’m hearing someone behind me quietly singing/ humming to herself, now as I’m trying my hardest to ignore this and concentrate on the singer who is doing nothing but telling me how great she is and how she should be famous, all I was thinking about was how to get to talk to this voice that I can hear behind me, after 5 minutes of this, I shamelessly got up and made the excuse that I had to meet a family friend that I had forgotten about, I quickly walked the singer out of the cafe, to the train station, said my goodbye and ran back to cafe! It was wrong but it was the best thing I did! Or else there would never be a Blazay group, at the time I obviously didn’t know this.
The Girl with the sweet sounding humming/singing voice who was sitting behind me is called Daria, I introduced myself and the music projects that I was doing, we had a great meeting and clicked straight away, a few months later we were in the studio recording and everything seemed to fit. I remember hearing her vocal on the tracks and knew that this would work. 2 Years on we have an albums worth of material and are ready to release our music to the world.
Blazay Group has a unique take on electronic music, marrying different styles influenced by the group background of Eastern European and Bajan roots.
Blazay is a two-piece, London based group that writes and performs all of their songs. When it comes to beats, Blazay’s Songwriter, Producer and Creator, Kevin, takes the best of what’s new and gives it that an old-school twist, which means there’s plenty of groove, rhythms and melody. Daria, who is the voice of the group, has an incomparable vocal style which makes Blazay’s song sound like no other.
The group has many songs in their portfolio including “I Like It” that has more than 14,000 views on YouTube.
The group is ready to release two of their tracks “Give me” and “That Sound” on the 23rd April 2018.
