If you take J*Davey, M.I.A. and Missy Elliott and mashed them into one musical element, you would get Bonjay. Hailing from Canada is Alanna on the mic and Pho on beats & effects. Their live performance is a high-energy sound system of bass and soul. Dancehall innovation, indie sentiments, and R&B hooks – these are the sounds booming out from the jeeps, towers and headphones of young Toronto, and Bonjay makes them their own.
Into this environment arrives Bonjay. Drawing their name from spice island slang for “Good God!”, Bonjay were born in a basement at Ottawa’s legendary Disorganised parties. What began as a simple crowd pleasing party lark has developed into a serious commitment to songwriting and production. See what I mean below. The 1:33 mark of Faat Gyal is sex as I know it. And make sure to check out Bonjay‘s MySpace blogs here for two remixes of Gimmee.
