Devlin feat Labrinth | Let It Go

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!

 

I think this track could continue the success for both these artists for sure. Right on to the video , the whole concept kinda reminds me of an Eminem style video , the production is first class.  I’m expecting big things from both these artists, and hope that they will do more tracks together.

 

Introducing Yasmin | On My Own

 

The brand new, début video from the beautiful and talented Yasmin for her new single ‘On My Own has been released recently.

DJ-turned-potential-popstar Yasmin, who’s just inked a deal with Ministry of Sound has had a brilliant year so far, after featuring on Devlin’s recent hit Runaway, she is now ready set to start her own solo career.

Yasmin makes her single debut with Shy FX produced “On My Own”. Critics are positively raving over the talents of this girl and this will be no exception. “On My Own” grabs you from the offset with Yasmin’s floaty vocals proving a big hit. She questions her choices before finding confidence that she did it all on her own, and it’s a great concept layered over some amazing production. Don’t be surprised if this one finds its way onto a variety of floors this winter. I’ve already got this on repeat!

Yasmin was discovered DJing by Pharell Williams. She  has toured along-side N*E*R*D, The Cool Kids, Will.i.am, Taio Cruz and Eve. She now has her sights set on making the transition from DJing to singing her own songs, and I predict that the transition will be a very smooth transition. Yasmin has a beautiful voice and is set to attract a lot of attention in 2011. Mark my words!

#I can’t leave without saying I’ve fallen in love with Yasmin after seeing the video.

She is B E A U T I F U L!

“On My Own” is out via Levels/Ministry Of Sound on 24th January 2011.

 

Devlin – Runaway (feat. DJ Yasmin) New Music Video Alert!


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!
