The ShortListen: DEVolution (no. 200)

Who? DEVolution

What’s the story? Can it really be 15 years since Artful Dodger unleashed the utterly brilliant debut album It's All About The Stragglers? What a record that was - demonstrating that UK garage was capable of producing a coherent album full of excellent songwriting, and not just a few passing hits. One of that duo, Pete Devereux, has continued to produce quality music ever since, latterly under the DEVolution moniker. While his previous output has been largely bass heavy and in your face, there's a change of direction for this latest track, taken from his new EP Same But Different, which is a smooth as silk, French house-influenced track, featuring the vocal talents of Yeah Boy out front. Class will out, and it's another winner from Mr Devereux.

For fans of: Daft Punk, MDNGHT, Benjamin Diamond

In three words: Sultry laidback house
