Almost three years ago she was an ordinary student, although in the Olympic squad of US swimmers. Then she took a "Verarschungssong" - and ended up about as vocal guest on the mega-Single "Like A G6" from The Far East Movement. This year turns DEV from L.A. now properly and provides plenty of material for the dance floor: "In The Dark" is their first official single, with it a perfect update to "Like A G6" delivers. She also acts as a foretaste of her solo debut "The Night The Sun Came Up", which will be released in September.
This cliché is almost as old as the United States itself: a girl from any coff leaves her sleepy hometown and sets out to the west, to Los Angeles in order to realize their dreams there. Unfortunately, it will eventually turn out quite differently because the metropolis makes it not easy, corrupts their ideals, it destroys, spits it out again sometime - end. not, however, the song - So at least goes the old song DEV: The true also comes from a small town and has now also landed in L.A., but it has a lot to sharp claws to be intimidated by the City of Angels. No wonder: Who has so much bass pressure in the back, it creates Everywhere.
The small town, from the Devin Star Tailes comes, goes by the name Manteca; it is exactly in the middle of California; Where nothing is going right there so absolutely. In this cultural no man's land grew DEV, whose family has Portuguese and Mexican roots, and apart from any barbecue parties, homework with Eminem soundtrack in the background and daily pool visits - after all, she was in the meantime in the Olympic squad of US swimmers - they already Ucs early as a singer. A stroke of luck led nearly three years ago to the fact that The Cataracs, one of the currently hottest production teams in the world, their spontaneously recorded on the computer cover version of Amy Winehouse songs discovered on the net and then knocked at her. Then came, in 2009, moved to L.A., the first recording together, and finally the song "Like A G6" from The Far East Movement, the Hook of DEV was sung. The track was known immediately through the ceiling: ranked # 1 in the US Billboard charts, sales in two millions, in Germany Gold status and top 15, top 5 in the UK.
Now what this was that they could contribute to the chorus of the megahit? Very easily: DEV had in common with The Cataracs a track called "Booty Bounce" was added, and a passage from it had the two producers again for the hit single by Far East Movement used as a sample. A guest appearance of detours so - but no less resounding was the success. And even more: Retroactive smote "Booty Bounce" like a bomb, as the video clip was called to several million times. By then, the matter was settled with the career as a swimmer first: Since then was DEV, her completely from The Cataracs produced debut album "The Night The Sun Came Up" will release in September, for example, With Usher on tour after already last autumn the stage with Kelis, La Roux and Natalia kills had shared. In parallel, it was also with people like Timbaland and David Guetta in the studio, for example, at the upcoming Guetta-Album can be heard as a vocal guest ...
Since October 2010, at Universal Republic under contract, you have the sound of DEV set to music as a kind of sex appeal designate: hypnotic samples, pumping beats, electro, hip-hop, RB and PopeinflÜsse merge in a hot boiling mixture that is welded together by their lascivious voice and inevitably forcing on the dance floor. Even when alone with "Like A G6" has proven that it is the absolute queen of the current electro-hop wave from California called, DEV her sexy voice but rather the voice of an outsider: "I love Los Angeles, but I must say that I am no scene here really belongs feel," said the singer with the distinctive sing-talk style, the incredible within seconds of sweet can switch to cocky and the boundaries between rap and singing like no other blurs. One can match the same track Booty Bounce, Electro-hop, post-electroclash or otherwise call the main thing is, you sweat, if the DJ has arrived at the second or third track.
After this DEV With "Bass Down Low" feat. Tinie Tempah excited again stir in other parts of the world had (gold in the States, platinum in Canada, # 8 on the UK iTunes charts), it builds with their buddies from The Cataracs With "In The Dark", the first official single, then on to their achievements and presents another electro banger with summer hit feeling.
The red-hot video clip for the first single turn has Ethan loaders realized that to have fOr clips "Booty Bounce" and "Bass Down Low" With DEV had worked. However, the new single of the Californian who celebrated her 22nd birthday on july 2, of course, only a foretaste: Your appearing in september Album "The Night The Sun Came Up" works according DEVs statement as a "sonic picture book: It combines very heavy and very light moments, all my moods, emotions and impressions recently. Oh, and sometimes I share it, too pretty, "said the singer about the album, which was mostly recorded in Costa Rica and" everything from electro-ballads to the kind of music as the strip club in Atlanta should run, "united.
