Florida-based producer dEVOLVE releases his latest track, an infectious dancehall-electro banger entitled “Put It On.”The record features Craigy T, the Jamaican lyricists and former member of the legendary Caribbean dancehall group T.O.K., and is available now via IP Labs.
dEVOLVE’s eclectic sound can be noted for its many influences across a spectrum of genres such as Caribbean dancehall, big room electronic music, trap and hip hop. “Put It On” is tribute to the catchy 90s to 2000s era dancehall sound with a strong, high-energy beat and an undeniable danceable rhythm. Embodying Jamaican vibes, powerful rhythms, and enrapturing drops, dEVOLVE also adds in the flare of the trumpets, which fit the theme of the music and are perfectly complimented by Craigy T’s lyrics.
“When I started working in the track that would become “Put It On”, I was trying to create something big that just grabs you with something catchy but powerful right from jump,” expressed dEVOLVE. “This track is a such a statement both for myself, and anyone jamming to it. ‘Put It On’ represents staking a claim for yourself – letting those surrounding you know that you’re here and that you’re not scared, so stay out the way because once we start moving – we can’t be stopped!”
