A widely publicized study this year confirmed what anyone paying attention to the industry has long known: Country music is a boys’ club. Back in April, USC’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative published its study No Country For Female Artists: Artist & Songwriter Gender On Popular Country Charts From 2014 To 2018, which found that … More »
“Pulling a Beyoncé” has always been a fairly elastic concept. Even when the phrase came into vogue at the end of 2013, when she surprise-released her self-titled visual album and, in her own words, “changed the game with that digital drop,” people were crediting her with both the surprise album trend … More »
Orange County native DEVAULT has rapidly made a name for himself over the past two-years, thanks to enamoring original releases and high profile remixes for everyone from Alessia Cara and DJ Snake to Rihanna. The 22-year-old has demonstrated his prowess in house, deep house, and even bass-laced tunes, but he has been showcasing a new side of himself in 2019.
At the beginning of the year, DEVAULT teased upcoming four-track EP, JADE, and released the first track of the compilation, “RUNWAY,” earlier this month. The track was what the producer dubbed as his ‘most energetic record to date,’ and it was a worthy taste of what was to come on the EP as a whole.
DEVAULT spoke with Dancing Astronaut about the project, explaining, “The goal of Jade was to push the boundaries of my own sound, as I felt when it came to a live performance there was something missing. I wanted to create music that’s my own version of club music, almost like a haunting runway show where I’m the curator for the night.”
“After my first EP, I felt like I needed to expand and push myself into something less polished, more in your face and raw. Like the initial scene from my video of the group of men vandalizing the car, I wanted to let out this side to me and it feels liberating. It’s instrumental focused, and something where I plan on releasing more music in a similar fashion. A place where the music and visual experience goes hand in hand,” DEVAULT added.
JADE is comprised of four tracks: “MAFIA,” “BLADE,” “RUNWAY,” and “RAINSTORM.” Each tells its own story, but all are unified by a dark energy and instrumentally driven sound. The producer notes that the best way to truly appreciate JADE is for listeners to immerse themselves in the accompanying film for the EP. The film is meant to be an open-ended, engaging experience where viewers can watch the characters seamlessly transition from scene to scene, in sync with the music. JADE is out now via Geffen/Interscope.
Pink has never fit in — so much so that not fitting in has become part of her personal brand. Despite spending two decades operating from deep within the mainstream machine, Alicia Beth Moore can believably tout herself as a pop star for the outsiders and the rebels. It’s a weird thing to say about … More »

DEVAULT adds another high-profile remix to his slate of official remixes, this time in the form of his rendition on Alessia Cara‘s “Out of Love.” The producer shows he has mastered dark sonic foreshadowing as eerie chords lead into raw house notes, blending with stunning vocals to create a polarizing whole with his spin on “Out of Love.”
DEVAULT is known for a sound that can be all over the map. Whether he is producing hip-hop or tropical house, the producer manages to infuse his own unique and retro flair into his soundscapes. DEVAULT spoke about his remix in an official release, stating, “I was beyond thrilled to be given this opportunity to do a remix for Alessia, she’s so gifted. The goal was to take this vocal and give it more of a night drive feeling, and we created a small visual to connote that exact idea.”
Pop music is a crazy industry, even more so in our fractured age. It’s crazy how many songs can be blowing up in some corner of the world, online or off, without ever spilling over into the mass consciousness. It’s crazy how many of those songs actually do spill over without some of us realizing … More »
Is it a bad idea to cover an Ariana Grande song? Probably yes, right? Ariana Grande is the moment’s dominant pop star, and she’s got a lot of great songs, songs that you might find yourself singing tunelessly at red lights or whatever. But she’s also got a feather-light, effortlessly showy voice, the kind of … More »
