URBANPHONICS presents BLAZE MOST PRECIOUS LOVE JAPAN TOUR

Aug 4 & 11

GRAND CAFÉ, & LAB. TRIBE OSAKA

Futureshock

Blaze is one of the most charismatic house duos from Newark, NJ. Kevin Hedge started his music career as a club disc jockey while Josh Milan was trained as a musician and gospel singer since he came from a very religious family. They met each other through their mutual friend and the original member of Blaze Chris Herbert in the early 80s and they soon started producing music together. By the time their sound caught the ear of Timmy Regisford, Vice-president of A&R of the prestigious Motown Records, they had captured the hearts of both club dancers and radio listeners. They have worked with the superstars like Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Jamiroquai, Lisa Stansfield, David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Masters at Work to name a few. In 1991, they recorded their long-awaited first album 25 Years Later and and it is still loved as the house music classic album. They are playing the exclusive DJ and Live sets at both Grand Café in Osaka on August 4th and Lab. Tribe in Kyoto on August 11th. Music is out of the cosmos and we are just interpreters of what is coming to us, Kevin says. Come and experience the one and only the Blaze world.
