Blaze DJs are Jonathan and Guillaume Alric, two cousins, both “around 30,” they say, who live in Paris. Born in Ivory Coast, Jonathan returned to France at the age of three, where he and Guillaume grew up in small villages, surrounded by classical music loved by their parents. Guillaume later developed a love for reggae and began to produce his interpretation of the dub with the name Mayd Hubb. Meanwhile, Jonathan attended film school in Brussels. While living there, Jonathan asked Guillaume to help him sound a music video he was making for the school, and so they started making music like The Blaze. Their collaborations are inspired by the warm atmosphere of dub music, but they also make use of sparkling percussion and melancholic voices (both cousins sing, but their voices are distorted to sound more or less the same). The result is a hypnotic sound, which unfolds slowly, that is placed between house and pop, an aesthetic that was presented for the first time in 2016 with “Manly,” their delicate debut video on Bromance Records than Brodinski.
