Kenny Bobien has been a major influence on the dance scene for over a decade. He lends his unmistakable vocal sound to the latest productions from Brothers Of Peace and Ian Friday.
Brothers Of Peace a/k/a B.O.P, the original producers of “Reachin’”, have reworked the song with a fantastic variety of fresh mixes, including the Soulmotional mix full of rich basslines, the B.O.P. Till U Drop mix which provides an entirely different feel with summery percussion and keys, and the Reprise Mix which also offers its own, slightly softer vibe.
As a successful producer and DJ, Ian Friday has also been doing his thing in New York for well over a decade. He founded the nonprofit arts organization called the Tea Party in 1994, which has provided a platform for upcoming and established artists such as Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Saundra St. Victor, Vernon Reid, Corey Glover, Saul Williams, The Antibalas and the Last Poets.
In addition to his residency at Tea Party, Ian Friday made a name for himself with the smash single “Life Starts Today”. Remix productions include “Ghetto People”, “Broken Dreams”, and “I’ll Wait”. He brings a truly beautiful touch to this release with his Tea Party mixes on “Reachin’”.
