Haven’t heard of [lastfm]Dev[/lastfm]? Think again! She’s the girl singing that crazy addictive hook on Far East Movement’s “Like a G6” and now she’s making waves with her brand new single, “Bass Down Low.”

Dev’s a Central Valley native with an electro-indie/hip hop flair. She was discovered by a fellow Bay Area group called [lastfm]The Cataracts[/lastfm] on MySpace.
[lastfm]The Cataracts[/lastfm] hooked her up with [lastfm]Far East Movement[/lastfm] and before [lastfm]Dev[/lastfm] knew it, her song “Booty Bounce” was being sampled on the hit song “Like a G6.”
Carson: I like where pop music is headed. Do you guys [Dev and The Cataracts] all live together in a warehouse or something?
Dev: Me and The Cataracts live together, yeah.
Carson: You guys do? You live with two dudes?
Dev: I live with, yeah, two dudes.
Carson: So when they’re producing the Far East Movement song, do they just yell out, “Hey Dev, come sing on this hook!”?
Dev: Yeah. They bang on my door. “Can you get on this hook? Can you get on this bridge? Wake up! Wake up!”
Carson: You were on Perez Hilton’s “One Night in New Jersey” a couple days ago. How was that?
Dev: It was so fun. It was good. He held a little thing for females. It was a diva night. [lastfm]La Roux[/lastfm] played. [lastfm]Kelis[/lastfm], you know, stuff like that. It was dope.
Dev’s in the middle of a massive U.S. club tour. In fact, she’ll be at The Roxy on November 10!
Can’t get enough of [lastfm]Dev[/lastfm]? Well thank goodness we have her newest song below!
