Reggae Hot

Easy To Love is a fine representation of lovers’ rock, an effortless blend of reggae, R&B and dancehall with universal appeal. The sophistication he brings to these tracks is the mark of true quality. His delivery and phrasing are impeccable, and his choice of material and collaborators are strategic and brilliant.

The title track was a No. 1 hit on reggae charts last summer, evidence that Maxi Priest has a gift for staying fresh. The song features the legendary Jamaican drum and bass duo Sly & Robbie, who’ve played on some of Maxi’s biggest hits, including “Wild World,” “Some Guys Have All The Luck,” “Close To You,” and “Housecall” (featuring Shabba Ranks) as well as the new album track “Every Little Thing.

Interview with Alexandra & the Starlight Band

Alexandra Starlight and Zachary James of Alexandra & the Starlight Band stopped by the station to do an interview with our own DJ Soul Patch during his program Not-so-distant Relatives which airs every Thursday from 2pm-4pm. Listen for Alexandra’s rocking acoustic jam! Although the KZSC talk department is fairly new on the scene, KZSC has a long tradition of getting awesome artists, writers, musicians and other talented people on the air. We want to keep that tradition alive by getting more exposure for some of these great interviews you may have missed, and some that are coming up in the near future! Stay tuned to KZSC and kzsc.org
