Toronto’s Bonjay create a kinetic blend of electro-soul, dancehall, and big beats that end up lodging in the brain as instant memories and the body as a means of motion motivation. Yeah, they make you wanna dance with abandon big time. That’s probably why Bonjay and director Sammy Rawal made two videos for “Stumble”, each with a different dancer choreographed by Dana Michel to represent a blend of dancehall and club styles. Hot stuff, both of them and we have the premiere of the one featuring Liana Lewis for you. Check out the alternate take with Addy Chan over on NOW.

Bonjay is the duo of Alanna Stuart on vocals and Ian “Pho” Swain behind the decks. They’ve been collaborating since 2006 and the hype is on the ascendant with the CBC tagging Bonjay as “one of the top 10 Canadian bands destined to break in 2010”. If “Stumble” is any indication, they are well on their way.
