Devlin – London City

Devlin has been a prominent fixture in the ever rising Grime scene, considered as Ghetts’ protege, Devlin is one of the founding members of the highly respected and even feared collective, ‘The Movement’ along with Wretch 32, Mercston, Ghetts and Scorcher. Numerous mixtapes, verses, freestyles and features kept his name within talk of the future of the scene, for a while though as artists began to establish themselves further, we did not hear much from Devlin.

Until now:

Devlin returns with an anthem for the city, a feel good song that feels as real as it sounds, lyrically honest, Devlin manages to capture the atmosphere well, it reminds me of The Streets – Blinded By The Lights, only in the sense that it’s a night out track but slow in tempo, it tells a story, almost as if your with Devlin on a night out in London City.

The video compliments the song well, directed by Digital Dan, one of the hardest working directors in the scene, putting Devlin into the spotlight, capturing him well with landscapes of London, to be honest, like the London Eye and Big Ben we should be proud of Devlin and the quality he possesses as an artist. Cameos from Ghetts, Griminal & Lil’ Nasty add a certain level of excitement, Ghetts has taken both Devlin and Griminal under his wing as he helps to establish the two undoubtly talents, it adds to the song and videos feel good vibe.

London City, is a great track as Devlin makes a return to the scene, to claim his spot as one of the best the UK has to offer.
