Dancehall artiste Chan Dizzy recently teamed up with the production duo Boom Bangaz for the production of his latest single, 'Bredrin Girl'.
Brothers Jayme and Mark Ermeav comprise the production duo Boom Bangaz and they have their sights set on taking their brand of dancehall and reggae music to a global platform.The brothers are originally from Belize. The presently reside in Tampa, Florida.
Boom Bangaz earned an underground following in Florida churning out remixes which they would upload to their Soundcloud page and other social media platforms. They have now embarked on full scale production which has already begun to bear fruit.
"We got the link with Chan Dizzy through Pantason Productions. Working with Chan Dizzy felt natural and we enjoyed working with him. The vibe was right and we now see Chan not only as an artiste but as a good friend," Mark explained.
Describing their style of music as a blend of dancehall with hip hop, reggae and electronic, the duo is aiming for mainstream success.
"We bring mainstream fusion sound to the game. We blend dancehall respectfully with other genres to give it a more hip and marketable sound. We want our music to be felt not only in the Caribbean or by Caribbean people living abroad, but by Americans, and Europeans who have not yet connected with dancehall music," said Mark.
Boom Bangaz was formed in 2013. Mark, 37, and Jayme, 25, explained that their first production was a remix for the song Ex Boyfriend which was recorded by Belizean artiste Tanya Carter.
Chan Dizzy, real name Kamar Ho-Shing, is known for hits such as Hello Bad Mind, Strange Face and Our Place.
