Dev Terez is a prodigious singer and songwriter who was made in Beloit, Wisconsin, and raised in Michigan. He has been writing and recording music since 2014 and in his quest to start afresh, adventure, draw inspiration, and focus on his promising music career; he relocated to China in October 2019. And from the appeal of the golden age R&B to the melodies of modern and contemporary R&B he is making his own stamp in the music industry. Dev stands out as a one-of-a-kind artist, and his ascendency to the very top will be swifter than a deer’s. Coming through with a track that is overflowing with melodic maturity and limitless flair, Dev featured spoken word lyrist Keyon Clinton on the single “Mind Right” an atmospheric R&B track that has been woven from a rich tapestry of high-quality sound and textures to design a certified hit song that is a delicacy to the ears and a feast for the senses. This is no ordinary R&B track as Dev and his production team went out of their way to ensure that you get a visceral listening experience that will stick to your mind like glue.
The track opens up to magnificent harmonically and percussively layered inviting beats that swim through like water over an ocean. The heavy and deep-dive of the bass soon make itself felt banging with a calming yet powerful introspective maturity right before Dev breathes life into the fire with his magical and marvelously oppressing vocals slinking through and coming atop the sophisticated instrumentations like vanguard on a battlefield! He speaks real power and truth with his vocal tone adapting a reflective delivery and accurately portraying the concept of the song. And to every listener heavily invested in his words, one theme clearly stands out “Better get your mind right!”
The intimate and the haunting background complex instrumentations are capped off by Keyon Clinton’s own powerful and poetic eruption as he delivers with a punch; his technical and instantaneous way with words conjuring up mental images of whatever it is he utters. He did so much justice to drive the point of the track home as each listener will be left reeling to his words as you indeed ask yourself, “When you die do you want an obituary or do you want a documentary?” That’s some food for thought right there!
