Just Blaze
“Behold (Exhibit J)”

Listening to Just Blaze’s latest house venture, “Behold (Exhibit J),” it may seem hard to believe that the man behind the console is the same one responsible for brawny hip-hop smashes like Eminem’s “No Love” and Joe Budden’s “Pump It Up.” But all of the Jersey native’s signature touches are there: jazzy piano, peppy bass lines, and, above all else, a sound steeped in 90s club and R&B. Blaze draws on a variety of textures to create a dance song much more sophisticated than that of his peers: airy synths float above a restless, lounge-y piano line, buttressed by classic house beats and just a dash of hip-hop bravado. Definitely a reason to get excited for Blaze’s upcoming EP, coming to you soon on Fool’s Gold.
