Dev79 – “Only 20 Minutes Away”


When you speak about the American Street Bass movement, you bring up names like Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey, two labels that come from the Philly scene, and have one man helping usher in the unique flavors to the masses: Dev79. Alongside Starkey, Dev79 has been at the forefront of this scene for years, bringing the gritty urban sound through a dubstep and grime filter. Earlier today, he released what sounds like the anthem for the perpetually late person in your crew, you know the “I’m twenty minutes away, I swear” guy, no matter if he’s stepped on the train or just woke up. The heavy sub tells the tale, with snappy drums and the clipped vocals riding in and out of the sonic pool. Something to just crank up and vibe to.
