AFTER a two-year sabbatical, Benzly Hype is back in the music business with a single called Dance For Me , featuring Alex Guesta and Raphael.

Released recently, the single is produced by Guesta. The track samples Carnaval de Paris, a song by English electronic dance trio, Dario G.

“I took time off to help take care of my mother, and after her death, I took some time off to deal with the pain. Then in December I decided I had to get back in the game with some new songs. I did a song called 'BBC' for producers Yan Kings and Matt Petrone, which got some buzz in Europe, and I was contacted by Alex Guesta to do Dance for Me. The buzz is great,” said the dancehall deejay.

“We are getting some great airplay for this song in some important markets in Europe, Asia and Africa, so I am very pleased,” he continued.

Benzly Hype is the son of singer Ainsley Morris. He was the star of the television drama Mi and Mi Kru, which started in 2009. It ran for a few seasons and is built around Benzly Hype and members (all cousins) of dancehall group Innocent Crew. Directed by Kurt Wright and Robin Chin, it also starred Audrey Reid, Professor Nuts, and Vas Blackwood.

“I am in negotiations to bring back the comedy series on TV. 2018 is going to be major, just look out,” he said.
