I did this interview with Devolo just before his solo debut ‘Heaven and Hell’ dropped, back when Back2Basics still existed (R.I.P). Of the D-Konz solo efforts his is my personal fave. ‘Somebody‘ and ‘Too Shy‘ are up there as some of the best local pop songs and I definitely feel like his talents and his knack for writing a great and catchy hook/bridge aren’t recognised enough. Dude is mos def underrated. The interview was fun and Devolo was super-easy to talk to. We chatted about writing, coming up in a heavily religious family, being close to going to prison and how he felt a lot more relaxed about song-writing at this time. My favourite insights of his are when talking about the songs ‘Elimination’, ‘They Don’t Know’ and ‘Feels Like Magic’. Brew a cuppa, and have a listen.
