Brooklyn-based producer and songwriter Devonté Hynes aka Blood Orange is quite brilliant if you ask me. His music has strong references to the 80s, in particular, Prince – which is fine in my book! I first fell in love with his song “Suthpin Boulevard” and then discovered the album Coastal Grooves. The video for the single, “Champagne Coast,” is beautiful and lo-fi, and the song is a great summer soundtrack… mellow melancholia with a little spike of anthemic flavor. And here’s a tip: Check out Devonté’s blog here; he is quite stylish, too!
