"Blaze had started out in 1987 with "If You Should Need A Friend" and is the same group who released an album on Motown in 1990 titled "25 Years Later." The singles from that full-length joint were "So Special" and "We All Must Live Together." Since then, the Newark, New Jersey trio has become a duo (Josh Milan and Kevin Hedge) who have returned to their club roots on this Slip 'N Slide CD with impressive results.If you are a true Househead, then this CD is highly recommended. The CD begins with "My Beat" with Kevin Hedge asking the listener if you up on his beat. Listen closely for his inquiry is a double entrendre. Track two, "Cult Of Soul," is a divine instrumental with both an electric guitar riff and flamenco influenced acoustic guitar. Clocking in at over seven minutes, it is sure to please the true House music lover."Wishing You Were Here" is a breakbeat track. All the tracks on this CD are House, except for this one and, therefore, stands out like a sore thumb."Sacred Sex" begins with a one minute monologue on sister girl's opinions on sex in general. Once she leaves the floor, the House grooves once again with pure, unadulterated delight.Lastly, the massive underground House hit, "Another Dae," closes out the set. Listen to that sax open up the track before it slams the groove!Comparable comparisons to "Basic Blaze" include Kevin Yost's "One Starry Night" CD and Gene Farris' "Planet House" opus. Again, if you are a true Househead, then this CD is a must have."
