About Blast

Blast is Known as eight different artists:
1) A Japanese Indies rock band. They are labeled as Nagoya Kei and have heavy connections with the bands Lamiel, Phobia, Kein, deadman, and Gullet. Vox: Yuina, Guitar: Iori, Bass: Hiderou, Drums: Hibiki
They started in 2001 out of the break up of Lamiel and disbanded in 2004.

2)Blast, the fourth of five children, Blast grew up in South Chicago where gangs were
rampant and getting caught up in a life on the streets was the norm. But he was
determined to take a different path, and by the age of nine, had focused his
energy on rap music. My first rap album was Dr. Dre. After I bought the Chronic,
it was a wrap. I knew I was in love with hip hop, Blast remembers. Rap became
more than something to listen to, and he soon found inspiration from well-known
artists like Wu-tang, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, UGK and Scarface. At the age of
13, Blast moved with his mother to Texas. "It was a different world. I would
vibe with all my friends in the studio and just sit back and listen. But, I
didnt take it too seriously," Blast said. He graduated from high school and
moved back to Chicago to attend college. It wasnt long before he realized music
and rapping was what he really wanted to do. "I was in school battling and
writing verses and songs everyday and I knew I was made for this." He moved back
to Texas and hooked up with Big Gun Records where he started working on
mixtapes. It was easy to hear he brought a unique style to the industry with his
mix of Midwest slang and East Coast flow, combined with Southern flamboyance.
Music didnt pay the bills, so Blast had to take on various jobs to keep the
lights on, the water running, and on occasion, to buy some clothes or a pair of
sneakers. "I was working two jobs and staying at the studio until four or five
in the morning trying to make this rap shit happen." After differences with the
label on the project, Big gun and Blast parted ways. "Honestly speaking, I wasnt
serious and hungry as I should have been. Big Gun had all the equipment, all the
tools, and the mind set to do something in this game," he said. He kept in close
contact with Mario Cuin and Johnny Cuin, both of Big Gun and one day received a
call asking if he was REALLY ready to do this rap thing, his answer was "Hell
yeah! I didnt appreciate what I had until I left the label and was out by
myself," he added. Soon after rejoining Big Gun, Blast started working with hot
producers, including Mannie Fresh, Collipark, Happy Perez, Play-N-Skillz, and
Mr.Lee. As well as big name artists like Bun B, Scarface, Akon, Big Tuck and
more."It was crazy when I worked with Bun B and Scarface because I looked up to
them and grew up on they music. I learned a lot just being in the same studio
with them." Recently, Blast has been working with Unkut, Big Gun's newest
member. He's also partnering with a friend from high school, Jay Breezy, and
another member from the label Young Esco. "Weve been coming along with hot shit
and I know people arent gonna expect the shit weve been doing. Thats why I
called the album Unexpected. Ive been doubted my whole life by everybody."
Expect the unexpected this summer.

3) Four piece English singing indie rock based in Moscow formed in the late 90s by Georgian singer/song writer Noshrevan "Nash" Tavkhelidze and Russian guitarist Alexandre "Khlap" Iartchevski with Bulgarian musicians Vlado and Vaylo. Blast are currently the biggest band in Moscow's flourishing underground rock scene. Signed up with British(Philippe-London)/Australian(Frank-Melbourne) indie label Ghost Records. Released first single "Bury the Shoe Girl" recorded in Manchester UK and produced by Mark Tolle(Stone Roses and The Mock Turtles). Released with distribution by Shellshock in HMV and Tower Records. PR campaign was done by the company Work Hard PR based in London with airplay and interview on London radio station XFM. Released their debut album "F..k the Industry" last year which included the track "Alright" which was a radio chart hit in Moscow for many weeks. Album featured on keyboards special guest Seamus Beaghan (credits include Paul Weller and Morrissey). Album recorded at Spotlight Studios in London and produced by Graham Pilgrim (3 Colour Red,The Stranglers, The Go-Betweens, Alabama 3 and The Vessels). As an added bonus the album was airplayed on Steve Lamacq's BBC Radio 1 Monday evening show last year whilst Blast were in the middle of a mammoth UK tour, 18 dates in 21 days. Blast have played with Badly Drawn Boy at the Oppi-Koppi festival in South Africa, Blur, Muse, The Orb, Franz Ferdinard in Moscow and Razorlight, The Warlocks, Thirteen Senses and the poet/comedian John Hegley in the UK. Played at the "In The City" festival in Manchester 2 years ago and recently headlined at the University of Northampton. Recorded 2 new tracks in summer 2006 in London with producer Russ Keffert(Blur, The Rakes, Crash Convention and Larrikin Love). Due to family reasons Khlap has left the group and has been replaced by Misha from the Moscow band Mothers Little Helpers.

4) Blast is also a porno metal band.

5) Blast are a Netherlands-based avant rock and jazz quartet notable for compositionally complex music. Since forming in 1989, the band has worked to develop a sound both dense and kaleidoscopic, which uses elements of both intense composition and free improvisation. On Altra Strata, they play like a heavy metal band who've discovered new instruments and new music. With the addition of new drummer Fabrizio Spera of the Italian improvising ensemble Ossatura, there's an even greater emphasis on improvisation here than in the past, and this should strongly appeal to the new brigade of appreciators of free-music in this post Sonic Youth world. Altra Strata is a vibrant combination of influences from 20th century classical, the Rock In Opposition bands of the 1970's and a violent approach to free and composed avant music.

6) Blast was one of the most popular 80´s Danish live bands. The group Blast stopped in 1990 after 10 years activity with more than 300 concerts and 4 albums. Since then there has been many people asking to get this great band together again and finally in 2005 the group did a reunion concert.
At the same time EMI Records released a CD with 12 of their best songs from the 4 albums and also added two bonus tracks from a live session in Hookfarm Studio from 1985.
Through out the years Blast has been having different musicians in the band, but always kept people from the original setup. Many of the artists has been influenced by the American music style and especially the west coast music. This you can hear in many of the arrangements of the songs at the different albums.

7) "The Blast" is an indie-rock band made up of four Americans based in Japan. They released one album, "You I've Seen," before disbanding.
