After taking a detour into more vocal-heavy productions in 2021, DEVAULT is back in the basement with a dark, sexy banger titled “HEAVEN’S GATES“.
DEVAULT has been making some of the most forward-thinking music in the dance genre for years now, evidence of his precociousness as the producer is still twenty-five years young. He came on the scene with a couple of massive remixes and ever since has been pushing himself to new heights with each release. His latest EP, DIAMOND comes as the latest in a series with titles themed on valuable gemstones.
Over here at Heard It Here First, we are huge fans of his work and have covered both SAPPHIRE and JADE in the past. Not only have those previous projects pushed dance music forward but each has been complemented by a first-class visual production to pair alongside the EP. This focus on the audio-visual highlights DEVAULT’s talent both as a producer and as a visionary. Not only is he producing fresh tunes but he’s creating an entire world to go along with them.
The first single off of the forthcoming DIAMOND, “HEAVEN’S GATES” represents a continuation of the producer’s development and a new sound for a new EP. The track is best played in a dark room with heavy bass and sweat-drenched walls and this is exactly the vibe that it was produced for. When speaking about the track, DEVAULT gave the following quote:
“Heaven’s Gates and the upcoming DIAMOND TAPE is all about risk and excitement. I’ve been longing to evolve in a drastic way, musically, emotionally, mentally etc. and I think this is a major turning point for me. i’m not confined to any genre but I put a grande effort in keeping things in my own world. HEAVEN’S GATES is a launching point into my next phase of that world: It’s dark, sexy and sets the stage for what DIAMOND TAPE will offer. I wanted to immerse the listener for a full 15 minutes as if they’re in a European warehouse dancing, escaping themselves. Izzy Camina the vocalist on HEAVEN’S GATES paints a perfect picture lyrically.” – DEVAULT
This track is a true mastery of the dark environment that we can expect from DEVAULT’S latest EP. The female-led vocals pace along with a throbbing bassline and consistent hi-hats suck the listener into a basement rave deep in Berlin. Izzy Camina crushed her vocal performance on this one. The song is ominous throughout and is perfectly built for the dancefloor with a steady rhythm and bass you can feel in your bones. Fans of DEVAULT can now rejoice as the DIAMOND era is well underway.
