When Drake decides to sign you to his label, you know you must be doing something right. That’s what happened in February of 2016 to Canadian duo DVSN (pronounced “division”), composed of Daniel Daley and producer Nineteen85, born Paul Jeffries, who has worked on huge tracks like “Hotline Bling” and “Truffle Butter.” The group’s sound is incredibly minimal for a band that’s making waves in the genre. With DVSN, there’s no need to layer on tons of reverb and production, their sheer talent stands on its own. On “Mood,” for instance, Daley croons over a simple drum beat with piano echoing in and out of the track. It’s smooth and sexy and definitely worth a listen (or 20).
