“Meet new school old school crooner BSKi, (pronounced “bee-skee”) with a touch Jamiroquai and neo-soul, it’s the pure poetry he’s writing that takes his sound to another level….” -ElevtrTrax
On December 7th, 2016 BSKi released Keep It Light, his highly anticipated debut EP. The 5-Song album, produced by Greg Mayo (Bernhoft, Brooklyn Sugar Co.) blends Latin rhythms with 90s R&B, Funk & Hip-Hop in a style BSKi affectionately refers to a “sancochofunk,” (sancocho=stew or gumbo).
A first generation “Nuyorican”, he grew up in Haverstraw, NY listening to his father play guitar and sing classic boleros by the likes of Rafael Hernandez and Trío Vegabajeño. His family singing group, Élan, was signed to Columbia Records before evolving into what became the soul-pop indie collective, Live Society who released three studio albums together, including their 2014 swan-song, Only a Disaster.
The music on BSKi's solo debut, Keep It Light evokes a '70s Stevie Wonder meets '90s New Jack Swing vibe while Collazo adds his own, at times, sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek lyrical approach for a uniquely personal record. The song “Let Your Hair Down” manages to simultaneously pay homage and poke fun at the “sexy lover man” persona so prevalent in R&B, matching an infectious groove with lyrics like “if I had game, I wouldn’t need to sing.” BSKi explains,“Both musically and lyrically, these songs sound and feel more like me than anything I’ve ever done.“
