NEW YORK, NEW YORK - On Friday, September 15, 2017 - Native rapper and songwriter Dev (Brooklyn) and teammate Nick Hews (Brooklyn/Venice) officially released the record titled “Done That Feat. Dj Journey)”, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.
Dev & Nick Hews - Done That (Feat. Dj Journey) is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with production partner Trip Digital, founder Dj Journey and executive production duo S.C.R.D.. The melodic, uptempo, New York style beat lends itself well to the writing and flow of New York’s own Dev, who delivers a sharp message pointed at all the people who don’t believe in the grind. Specifically he’s taking shots at the naysayers along the way who try to play you but then want to jump on the bandwagon when you’re hot. Pulling from life experiences, Dev works security at a high-end luxury hotel and nightclub in the off hours between work on a solo album and a collaborative project with writing partner Nick Hews.
While currently in Venice, California, Nick Hews met Dev in New York when both artists were living in Brooklyn, back in 2013. A year later they began writing together and the following year they finalized Done That, in Lounge Studios with a recording on March 15, 2015 under engineer Joseph Angol. From then till now Nick Hews moved out to Los Angeles and then Kuwait, before settling in Venice. Working bicoastal, the future Dev and Hews worked with Mikaelin ‘Blue’ BlueSpruce (Solange) to mix and master their first collaborative release, with future solo and collaborative records coming down the pipes in 2018.
