25 Years Later
To me, the best work of Blaze is their 1990 album on Motown: “25 Years Later”.
Diana Ross, Boyz II Men, De' Lacy, Babyface, Gerald Levert, Kool & the Gang & Adeva, are just a few of the stars who have been touched by the magical production & mixing talents of Blaze. The Blaze team of Kevin Hedge & Josh Milan have been turning out House/R&B/garage hits since 1987, when they first came to the attention of Easy Street via In Sync's classic, "Sometimes Love". A young DJ by the name of David Morales happened to be in the studio during the session & contributed his 1st ever remix to the 12". For more than 10 years, Blaze & Easy Street have maintained one of the industry's most enduring and productive "partnerships" which culminated with De' Lacy's worldwide smash - "Hideaway" & the follow-up "That Look", both of which were top 20 pop hits in the UK. Recently, the collaboration resulted in another chart hit, "Movin' On" by Debbie Pender AM:PM/Tommy Boy) & a scorching performance by Kathy Brown of "Happy People". In 1999, Easy Street released the album "Pure Blaze" which presents a collection of timeless songs & killer grooves produced by this talented duo for Easy Street during the past decade.

They've been around for some years and that experience is their rock. Blaze's know how of infusing soul, jazz, African, and Afro-Latin sounds into house has them ahead in terms of innovation on the house music scene. Blair Williams for amazon.com
