Under any name, Devonte Hynes is a really talented guy. He’s recorded under the names Lightspeed Champion, Test Icicle and after meeting him in person once, he told me I could just call him Dev. He’s got a new project called Blood Orange, and if you head over to Stereogum, you can download three tracks for free! Thanks Dev.
Also, you can watch Dev perform a live cover of Janet Jackson’s “He Doesn’t Even Know I’m Alive,” which is also awesome here.
