As you know, some musicians work alone, but most work collaboratively. Consider Dev.
Dev (Devin Tailes) crafted a terrifically fun, post-Peaches/post M.I.A. song called “Booty Bounce” in 2010. It was produced by the Cataracs duo.
But “Booty Bounce” didn’t make Dev a star. Instead, her song was sampled into someone else’s massive hit, “Like a G6,” by the DJ-production quartet Far East Movement.
“Like a G6” was ubiquitous in late 2010 and through much of 2011 and made stars of Far East Movement, Dev and the Cataracs.
Dev has since wracked up the hits “Bass Down Low” (with the Cataracs), “Naked” (featuring Enrique Iglesias, plus a music video filmed in Vegas) and “In The Dark.”
Now Dev, a 23-year-old from central California, is a sort of regular performer at Vegas clubs, making an appearance every few months.
And on Saturday, she sings at Palms pool dayclub, where booties will bounce.
