What is the soundtrack of your life? Dj Blast’s soundtrack is so diverse he has to have lived a thousand lives. Born Jean Evens Bellevue, Blast grew up wanting to be not only the life of the party, but the architect of it as well. Although his upbringing wasn’t very musical, since an early age he sought after it, almost as a second nature.
His first contact to music started with the movie Beat Street in 84′. In his teenage years he learned the guitar but it was his 15th anniversary gift that changed the course of things: his first audio-mixer. It didn’t take long for Blast before the first gig and the first mixtape appeared making him the neighborhood go-to person for the hottest mixes and the brand new jams. But it didn’t stop there. Blast was a big enthusiast of the battle scene from the days of the new music seminar battles and the DMC. He practiced his craft until finally got a shot at the regional title and won for three years consecutive the Montreal DMC from 1998 to 2000 and also taking the 2000 Canadian team battle with his crew, the deceptikonz, sending them off to war with the best turntablists the world had to offer at the finals in the UK.
Thanks to the digital revolution that took the dj world by storm, Blast branched out of Hip Hop and embraced other musical styles. From Dance Music to Brazilian Baile funk, also delving into Bmore Club & Electro.His dj sets are a soulful blend of the hottest and the latest, period.
Blast’s success lies in the fact that he managed to juggle many aspects of deejaying without compromising any of them. He has sharpened his club dj skills, while making a name for himself in the remixing game with AV8records. On the production tip, he has blessed underground Top Dogs Main Flow & Frank & Dank with solid beats & has even landed credits on Bone-thugs & Harmony’s 2006 release “Thug Stories”. 2010, he is now releasing his first in a series of digital releases thru his own imprint Bhang Records, “Samba Love”. All this to let you know that Blast, a vet, a champ, a proud bumsquad dj, is always on the grind.
