“You’re my shing star. You’re my everything…” As many words (almost) sayin’ it all as to what the theme is this song is about. On the heels of the recent celebration of Valentine’s Day as a matter of fact. With up and coming South African singer Christopher ‘Unqle Chriz’ Baloyi vibrantly takin’ the centerstage. Meanwhile producer Doug Gomez comes up with the perfect environment. With jazzy lush key parts along with smooth arrangements. Thus adding much intimacy to the whole.
“You’re my everything”. Let’s see how this might become yours…

Hailing from the Big Apple, Doug Gomez started his career back in 1987. As a true New Yorker of Latin decent, his love for drums and sophisticated melodies led him to be embrace the path of DJing and production. He notoriously worked for Waako Records from 1994 to 2005 as A&R/promotions director. A label that had artists such as K.O.T., Lenny Fontana, Kenny Carpenter, Mood II Swing and Louie ‘Balo’ Guzman to name a few.
In 2007, he teamed up with a friend to create music together under the alias DRRTYHAZE. A venture which got them signed to labels like Gomma, TIRK, and Nang amongst others.

This in addition to his collab with South African singer Unqle Chriz on the soothing ‘My Everything’…
