Legendary production duo Kevin Hedge and Josh Milan, formerly known as Blaze, can look back at an impressive catalogue of production and remixes, many of which have been released on the legendary KingStreet label. Not only that, Blaze have been involved with the label right from the start - they remixed the very first release ("Beat freak" by Loop Trick featuring Maria) and produced the second and third release ("Changes" by Althea McQueen and "It works for me" by Blaze featuring Sabrynaah Pope) on the label. This breathtaking retrospective collection features not less than thirty handpicked classics from their time with the label, including aforementioned tunes as well as many of other unforgettable originals such as "Seasons of love", "Jump 4 love" and "Shine", and remixes such as "Hold on" by 95 North featuring Sabrynaah Pope, "Love's been right here" by Stephanie Cooke & Kenny Bobien and "Breaking down" by Ananda Project. And of course, songs from their critically acclaimed LIFEbeat benefit compilation "Keep hope Alive" are included as well. Blaze have since gone their separate ways, beyond the shadow of a doubt they are an integral part of the legacy of house music.
