Adult Swim have just released a new album by Atlanta-based producer Chris Devoe. With The Moon, expounds on Devoe's signature surreal and earthy sound by marrying dance-inducing beats with ethereal voices, weaving a vibrant tapestry of hip-hop and electronica that echoes with nostalgia, love, loss, and family. It's a catalyst for movement- both physical and mental- as well as a prism of musical styles Devoe has consumed and cultivated through the years. The album's long list of guest collaborators stands as a testament to his creative agility, including contributions from fellow Atlanta and New York-based artists including Prefuse 73, Helado Negro, Zano Bathroom, pumashock, Kara Strauss, Ben Davis, Nate Sadler, and Ryan Rasheed.
Devoe is a prolific creator, from live performance and studio recordings to side projects and collaborations. A self-taught musician, Devoe has developed a knowledge of acoustic instrumentation and digital production technique that imbues organic texture to his distinctive, experimental style- rooted in classic jazz LPs and soul 45s, shaped by a lifelong pursuit of diverse music and art, and driven by an appetite for exploration. As a veteran DJ, he bridges the underground hip-hop, indie, and experimental camps of the Atlanta music scene and beyond via international tours for the music label Arepaz/BetaBodega Coalition (who released a collection of his several of his EPs). For nearly a decade, he was the opening DJ for Adult Swim's annual Upfront concert event with featured headliners such as Outkast, Jay Z, Kanye West, Drake, Miley Cyrus, T.I., and Nicki Minaj.
