Review: ‘Devil Ina Blue Dress’ by Dex Man ft. J Wanza

Leftwing movement member, Dexman, is back with latest single, ‘Devil Ina Blue Dress’ which picks up where he left off with previous releases, developing his individual afro-rap style.

J Wanza, who also features on the track, opens ‘Devil Ina Blue Dress’ with an alluring hook that paves the way for the rest of the song. He sets up the stage perfectly for Dexman’s witty and expertly-crafted lyrics which provide the centrepiece for this latest release.

Whilst the lyricism of Dexman and J Wanza is at the heart of the track, the actual music plays a subtle, yet powerful role in backing them up. A strong beat is married with a steel drum-esque tone that exemplifies Dexman’s Afro-music influences and adds a real sense of groove that’s sure to get people up and moving. Consequently, it’s the kind of track you can really imagine being played in the club.

Some have labelled the up and coming artist as a ‘genre hopper’ which is by no means a bad thing. Dexman may be in the stages of still finding his exact sound, but dabbling across styles is a great way of doing this, which also exhibits Dexman’s versatility as an artist.

‘Devil Ina Blue Dress’ has received a brilliant response and after being featured on Link Up TV and Hackney’s Finest, the video has received over 40,000 views on the platforms in under a week. With influences including Dr Dre, Meek Mill, Skepta and Drake, it is evident that Dexman has big aims for his music in the coming future.

The Floating Bridges

The album has been borne out of the band’s jammin’ sessions, and has been inspired by “good times” they have had together living on the Sunshine Coast. Lead single ‘Dreamcatcher’ allows the listener to get in to the same groove. The track features the traditional offbeat rhythms of reggae as well as the spiritual side of roots music, combined with Jimi Hendrix-style rock-n-roll guitar, which allows for an undeniably original yet authentic sound.

The Floating Bridges are touring the UK from 17th July – not be to missed!

And now, with new single ‘Sunlight’ release on QW-KEYMUSIC it’s set to show the world exactly how it sounds when pop, rap, reggae and EDM are drawn together, his star will continue to rise:

Gritty and raw while still having a polished sheen, ‘Sunlight’ is a single which could well see 2Nice break through from cult status to the mainstream. It’s truly impressive work from a brave and innovative artist not afraid to try new things.
