Keep On Loving Me – Devon Baldwin & Christoph Andersson

April 16, 2015

Keep On Loving Me

Download Keep On Loving Me - Devon Baldwin & Christoph Andersson

Devon Baldwin continues to evolve from G-Eazy‘s chorus girl into a flourishing solo artist. From collaborating with musician JMSN, slaying performances at SXSW and Buku, it’s clear that while Devon may be riding the wave of G-Eazy, it’s her utter elegance and talent that continues to impress audiences. I especially enjoy the music she’s created thus-far with producer Christoph Andersson. He has the ability to marry Devon’s silky angelic voice with complementary and distinctive electronic production. Her latest track “Keep On Loving Me”, which just premiered yesterday on The Fader, incorporates more kick and more slap-bass as well as vocals from Christoph himself. While I have to say the subject matter of her songs may be exhausted at this point (i.e. toxic relationships), her sound is progressing and I only see her getting bigger from here. For now, cop this free download and look out for her debut EP “Lungs” coming soon.

Let’s Get Lost – G-Eazy & Devon Baldwin (Louis Futon Remix)

Download Let's Get Lost - G-Eazy & Devon Baldwin (Louis Futon Remix)

Louis Futon is the kind of producer/DJ who doesn’t necessarily have a “signature sound”, but every now and then he’ll strike gold and find his perfect balance between mellow contemplative progressions and groovy house melodies. This rendition of G-Eazy’s Let’s Get Lost is a perfect example of one of his gems; the heart-melting vocals of Devon Baldwin are sampled across the bouncing bass, distant claps, ambient keys, and down-tempo hi-hat compilations to create an incomparable euphoric atmosphere. G’s verses are coated in heavy synth and waves of warped Devon vocals, but his lyrics still set a contemplative tone even here. This is a download you’ll definitely want to cop from us. Share some good music with your friends, follow Louis Futon on twitter, and peep his soundcloud for a lot more great free material.

Knock You Down – Devon Baldwin, Skizzy Mars, & Christoph Andersson

February 12, 2015

Knock You Down

Download Knock You Down - Devon Baldwin, Skizzy Mars, & Christoph Andersson

Bay-area singer Devon Baldwin linked up with rapper Skizzy Mars and producer Christoph Andersson to create “Knock You Down,” a pop ballad with some biting words and heavy emotion. The track starts off with a melancholy piano riff, leading up to Christoph’s signature dream-pop production sound at 0:50. The beat is ambient and bouncy, but pay attention to Devon’s airy and haunting voice singing lyrics like “I’m gonna shoot you down just say goodbye,” and “You’ll love me now, but I can’t help it If I’m the one who takes you down.” Sounds like Devon is done putting up with bullshit and is really starting to assert herself with her own music. Cop the free download and decipher it for yourself.

Download Walking In The Air - Devon Baldwin

If you had a childhood, you probably saw the movie The Snowman and remember this song from the iconic scene of the main characters flying across the world together. Anyways, Devon Baldwin paired up with Christoph Andersson to recreate this decade old blast from the past, heavy ambient waves progress over the ominous bass line and clanking chains contrast Devon’s angelic voice brilliantly, nailing the eerie sound that Howard Blake created in his originally orchestrated song. Enjoy, and be sure to give Devon and Christoph a follow on twitter.

Blame – Devon Baldwin

Download Blame - Devon Baldwin

While G-Eazy has been releasing new tracks, headlining his own tour, and making big moves in hip-hop, his right-hand woman Devon Baldwin has definitely not been sleeping on her own music career. Blame, one of her first solo releases without G, allows Devon to share her own thoughts over a full-length track, rather than crooning choruses and hooks. It’s a future-bass ballad about loving someone who can’t be there for you the way that you want them to. When one person takes responsibility for a relationship between two people, someone will get blamed eventually for not keeping it all together. Devon’s voice is airy and angelic over 4e’s minimal production, but she delivers her words with confidence. And prepare to melt away when she starts vocalizing at 1:36. Overwhelmingly beautiful. Looking forward to more solo releases in the future from Ms. Baldwin. Keep tabs on her Soundcloud for more Bathtub Dream Pop tunes.
