Bazil’s East to the West is a soundtrack for the summer

5926c398-4c9a-4011-9c77-378e243d7247French singjay Bazil released his debut album 2011 and put out his latest set East to the West earlier this year. This is an intense and eclectic affair showcasing musical influences from Europe, the U.S. and, of course, the Caribbean.

Bazil started recording at the age of 15 and is nowadays a seasoned performer and recording artist not shy to break musical boundaries.

East to the West is colorful and urban and stands firm in the reggae tradition, but it also incorporates hip-hop, tropical and electronica. Check for example the infectious Vision, the bouncy Love the Night, the fierce General or the summery Escape with a strong cross-over appeal.

This is an album for a late-night summer party.
