dEVOLVE Drops Huge Remix Of Jay-Z, Damian Marley, Sister Nancy ‘Bam’
Caribbean bass’s rising star dEVOLVE has released a new straight-to-soundcloud remix for Jay-Z’s “Bam”. A standout track from the critically acclaimed 4:44 album, “Bam” pairs Jay-Z with Jamaican dancehall legend and Marley royalty Damian Marley, over the all time classic “Bam Bam” by Sister Nancy. dEVOLVE captures that energy and channels it into a big room trap banger, complete with a rare performance of “Bam Bam” by Sister Nancy not found on the original track in the middle.
The marijuana infused melodies of Damian Marley’s vocals meet the retro reggae vibes of Sister Nancy’s classic, before ramping up into two high energy drops complete with blistering leads, double time kick patterns and of course, catchy Jay-Z adlibs throughout.
dEVOLVE made his way onto the scene in 2016 and hasn’t lifted his foot off the pedal since. The Florida-based artist’s eclectic sound can be noted for its many influences as it features a spectrum of genres such as caribbean dancehall, big room electronic music, trap and hip hop.
His debut single “Bubble Gum” featured Jamaican dancehall legends T.O.K. and was signed and released by Jillionaire (of Major Lazer)’s Feel Up Records. Following that up with a string of releases and remixes, dEVOLVE’s music has been supported by influential djs and media outlets including Apple Beats 1, Major Lazer, Diplo & Friends Radio, Henry Fong, Marshmallow, The Chainsmokers, BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems show and SiriusXM BPM.
In late 2016 he dropped “Higher!,” a club smashing collaboration with Red Rat that has racked up over 12 MILLION Spotify streams, and was named a “Beats1 Banger” by Apple Music. By the end of 2016, dEVOLVE was obtaining acknowledgment from Dancing Astronaut, featuring him in their ‘5 Under 5K’ segment, and coverage from media outlets across the EDM spectrum.
2017 has seen a string of both official and bootleg remixes from dEVOLVE for artist like Jillionaire, Sean Paul, Chance The Rapper, Calvin Harris and others. In June, dEVOLVE dropped “Monster”, a party rocker featuring Richie Loop that has garnered support from Dancehall DJs across the globe, and has been supported on major Spotify playlists including Mad Decent Weekly.
Summer 2017 served up the launch of dEVOLVE’s new radio show, “dEVOLVE Radio”, which airs every weekend across the island on Jamaica’s FYAH 105 FM and streams worldwide on DASH Radio’s flagship DASH 1 station.
dEVOLVE is also a member of the world renowned Flex Up Crew future-dancehall collective. Pay attention to his growing movement, because dEVOLVE shows no signs of slowing down, with a stacked release calendar of original tracks and remixes lined up for the rest of 2017.
