What are the ingredients for a summer party anthem? An infectious beat? A killer hook? Is it something that can really be defined or is it just a feeling that comes over you as you roll down [geocity]’s main drag, top down, speakers booming? Alaska MC doesn’t concern himself with such questions in his jam Bounce To This. What he wants to know is did you come to party? Did you come to dance? If you reply ‘yes’ to these inquiries, it doesn’t really matter where or when this tune hits you. Whether you’re in the club, on the beach or cruising with your friends, this song screams good times. It has ‘summer party anthem’ written all over it.
So, how can someone named Alaska, a word that brings to mind frigid ice and snow, create something so damn hot? Born in Chicago, he’s spend time in some of the world’s hot beds of R&B, Hip Hop and Freestyle. From South Florida, Atlanta and the Bahamas to London, he’s soaked local music scenes in. He now makes his home in Birmingham, UK – a growing local scene for of urban talent. What has resulted for this musical world traveler is a fusion of the hottest and sexiest vibes of UK, US and Caribbean music.
Not content to only spend time in the studio, you can catch Alaska live at clubs, raves and festivals if you’re in his area. Otherwise, he’ll be releasing music on labels in the UK, Russia, South Florida, Spain and Italy.
One part hip hop, one part Freestyle, this Florida girl hasn’t heard a jam like this since she prowled the night clubs in Miami several years back. But as beatmasters like Alaska spread their influence worldwide, I may not have to go back home to hear some sweaty freestyle/Hip Hop fusion.
