Dagenham’s very own Devlin catapulted himself into the mainstream this year, with his UK hit, Runaway featuring the gorgeous Yasmin. Since then, he’s been in high demand – most notably featuring in Tinchy Stryder’s Game Over. He continues to push his debut album ‘Bud, Sweat and Beers‘ and the latest release is the track featuring super talented producer/singer Labrinth!
I think it was just a matter of time before these teamed up to create something special!
They have been two of the success stories of the past year and I think their styles compliment each other quite well. Devlin always has that catchy/emotional chorus element in his tracks, and that’s where Labrinth comes in , cos I think Labrinth is a class act at delivering these choruses with the perfect level of emotion!
It’s being hailed as one of the UK’s biggest grime tunes to date. I’ve been pretty excited about this track for a while and now the video has now been unveiled for all to enjoy!!
GIGGS, DEVLIN, EXAMPLE, PROFESSOR GREEN, TINIE TEMPAH and CHIPMUNK all appear on the track. The fact that Tinchy has gathered ALL these UK artists is no mean feat and shows the strength of UK music at the moment. It’s huge!!
Game Over is taken from the Tinchy’s forthcoming album Third Strike.
Judging by the reaction so far, the track is destined for chart glory… The result is the UK urban scene at it’s finest really!!
Check the newly premiered video out below….!
Devlin is not to be ignored, if you do not already know then I hope you know after hearing his new single “Runaway“. Devlin is essentially a grime artist but he has switched up the production and style for this track. He’s still managed to retain his grime flow to his rhymes and has successfully still managed to make a song that should see him create a good commercial reception. What’s even better is that Devlin’s music seems to be getting better. His first offering from the album was “Brainwashed” and he’s certainly stepped it up a notch with this effort “Runaway” featuring Yasmin on the hook!
I first came across the multi talented Yasmin when she went under the name of DJ Yasmin, she still does DJ (brilliantly…her song selection is always impressive) however she’s recently made the move into making her own music and the hook is a very infectious part of the track. I’m looking forward to hearing and seeing more of her in the future!!!! Devlin is fast becoming one of my favourite U.K Mc’s obviously he’s been around many years featuring on other tracks but with the release of Brainwashed earlier this year I began to take more notice… The video for the track has premiered. I like the concept. You can check it out below.
The track is taken from his debut album ‘Bud, Sweat and Beers‘ which is out November 1st. Look out for this track I have a feeling it could be the track that launches chart success for Devlin!
Another UK artist making big strides in 2010 is 18 year old grime artist Devlin.
This will be the second release from his album ‘bud, sweat & beers’ which will be in a store near you on November 1st 2010. . Devlin has collaborated with the lovely Yasmin for his follow-up to the hugely popular debut single Brainwashed. Keep an eye out for the video for Runaway in the coming weeks.
Listen to Runaway below : I’m a big fan of Devlin’s new single! Cant stop playing it!
Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Bud, Sweat & Beers’ due out in the autumn,
Many are anticipating big things from 21 year old Essex emcee Devlin. He is probably one of the scenes best lyricists at this moment in time and is one to watch out for this year. If this tune, “Brainwashed” is anything to go by, it’s clear to see why. Feeling the dark visuals too in the video.
