Brooklyn's reggae/pop/soca mega producer Ricky Blaze just released a sunshine-soaked riddim that doesn't require more than an easy two-step or, if you've got an able partner, a good slow wine. Showcasing the versatility of this winning beat, Blaze invites Trinidadian soca crooner Kes The Band, Jamaican lover man Gyptian, and Vincentian singer Zoelah to take turns on the beat, each infusing the track with a different flavor profile. Blaze also gets in on the action and steps up to the mic with drippingly-sweet vocals on "All I Need." We strongly suggest that you stream the four-track EP below, sip on a rum punch, take a wine and welcome summer. If you're in NYC this weekend, catch Kes The Band for a meet and greet at Radio Lily presented by LargeUp. Peep the flier for info here.
