Devious: musical architect who helped shape today’s bounce sound

“We gonna start this thing off right – we got Devious in the house tonight!” – From 1992’s hit single “Where They At”

New Orleans legend Devious (and of course, Hollygrove’s own) has long been a mainstay in urban music. His new single “Bounce That” was released just as Drake’s new singles are working to bring New Orleans’ unique and often imitated/never fully duplicated sound to the world! Super producer BlaqNMild created the track and added his awesome flavor to the already delicious recipe. Yes folks, it’s an exciting time in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Devious has long worked as an architect of New Orleans’ exciting sound, most notably for his historical work on DJ Jimi’s 1992 hit single “Where They At”. In fact, that song solidified the careers of not only Jimi, but Devious and Mellow Fellow and led to an explosion of Bounce Music as an entire sub-genre. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we must put it out there that New Orleans culture created Bounce. The city’s own legends catapulted it into mainstream. Once it took its place in music history, artists such as Drake and T.I. helped to make the sound travel even further around the globe – BUT credit must be given to those who created, cultivated and nurtured Bounce and New Orleans music in the beginning! Devious is one of those “bricklayers”.

“Bounce That” is available at all digital outlets. A full length album entitled “The Narrative” will soon be released by Devious and you can expect to see some memorable collaborations on deck. Devious is a highly lauded, talented and awarded songwriter, artist, entreprenuer, educator, and mentor who has been busy gaining songwriting credits with Cardi B, Lil Duval, Project Pat, and more. As of late, BlaqNMild has been producing for Drake on “Nice For What” and “In My Feelings”, as well as on Devious’ upcoming album.

Be on the lookout for Devious’ new video and single “Coffee House” feat another legendary Hollygrove MVP, Fiend. In fact, be on the lookout for Devious and BlaqNMild to continue adding to the history of New Orleans’ beautiful entertainment resume!

Twitter @Qthe7th Instagram @Qthe7th http://www.ElementMovement.com

Quest the 7th hails from historic Algiers, located on the Westbank of New Orleans. He is becoming well known for being one of the most inspirational and creative modern day music artist and songwriter. In addition, his production style is sought after. He is truly growing into the title of “triple threat”, one he plans to wear well. His style is unrivaled in that his music is traditional, yet influential and is helping to reshape the sound of today’s modern Hip Hop. The visuals for “# 7” were filmed and directed by CRG Films and were just made available on You Tube. It is the first single off of the upcoming “Algiers Chronicles 1.5”, a deluxe edition and a re-release of the acclaimed “Algiers Chronicles” that made its debut in 2017.

One of the goals Quest the 7th hopes to achieve through the release of “Algiers Chronicles 1.5” is to breathe new life into a genre that many contend has become dull, boring and downright unoriginal. Quest the 7th is an original and an epic creator and because of these qualities, he is confident he will be successful in not only changing the current state of Hip Hop, but affecting it positively and creating a lane for talented and like-minded creatives. His ultimate goal is to become known internationally as a Hip Hop innovator, serving as a catalyst for the return of real and intellectual Hip Hop music, fused with mainstays like R&B and Jazz. Quest the 7th has been quite successful in creating timeless art and he looks forward to the future as he continues on that same mission.

“Algiers Chronicles” was released to wide acclaim on August 28, 2017 and is available for purchase and streaming on all major digital entertainment platforms, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, and hundreds more. “Algiers Chronicles 1.5” will be released in the near future.
