Banging jams from Belize

Dancehall and reggae music have grown in Belize during the past 15 years. Dancehall is especially popular with two of its fans being brothers Jayme and Mark Ermeav, better  known as Boom Bangaz.

The production duo resides in Florida where they have earned an underground following by churning out remixes which they upload through social media, particularly their Soundcloud page.

Their latest release is the song Bredrin Girl by deejay Chan Dizzy, best known in Jamaica for the songs, Strange Face and Hello Bad Mind.

“The link with Chan Dizzy was good. Working with him felt natural and the vibe was right,” said Mark, older of the brothers.

Describing their music as a blend of dancehall, reggae and hip hop, the siblings are looking for the breakthrough on American pop radio.

“We bring a mainstream fusion sound to the game. We blend dancehall with other genres to give it a more hip and marketable sound,” Mark explained. “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.”

Boom Bangaz formed in 2013. Mark, 37, and 25-year-old Jayme got the ball rolling with a remix for Ex Boyfriend by Belizean artiste Tanya Carter.

Originally from Belize City, the ‘Bangaz’ say they discovered dancehall and reggae in their teens.

They plan to produce a number of remixes throughout the summer and work again with Chan Dizzy.

The Belize dancehall scene has picked-up considerably in the last decade. Beenie Man, Bugle, Tommy Lee and Tiana are some of the artistes who have performed in the Central American country.
