Dev X Huie is the new LP from UK Producer, International Emcee and Recording Artist, Fontzerelli

Known across the UK as a host / MC for events like internationally renowned hip hop battle event The Jump Off . Fontzerelli has hosted and MC’d for the likes of US Rap legend Nas, Young Guru – (Jay Z’s personal engineer and tour DJ), Virgil Abloh – Kanye West’ ex creative director/creative director for Louis Vuitton, Skrillex, The Game, YG , Mr Hudson, The UK’s So Solid Crew and Ed Sheeran.

Fontzerelli has produced for and helped craft the early career to Jessie J. He has also recently been touring with chart topping producer / DJ ‘Sigala’ as his official MC.

A recording artist in his own right Fontzerelli has since kicked it all off with the release of ‘Lord Finesse’ taken from his Dev X Huie LP – a project released exclusively on Cassette tape along with a free Walkman with every copy purchased.

“I have a routine of receiving random messages from friend/producer Shai Sevin that simply States: ‘’SHUT UP! PRESS PLAY!’’ Which means ‘’Fontz you are gonna go crazy for this beat!’’ The routine never fails to amaze me. I felt a strong reminiscence of the early naughties in the production and the hook is a “Londonised” rendition of Slick Ricks 80s classic La Di Da Di ft Doug e fresh so two out of three of my favourite eras in one beat! Not bad to spark inspiration for a song! That’s the reason this song sounds the way it does :)”

Dev X Huie is available now to purchase from Apple Music and stream via all major digital outlets.
