With roots in pop-punk and metal (with a deep love for pluggnb ,hyperpop and cloudrap) Virginia based rapper Dev Gajan forges a sound of his own. His work frequently features genre-blended flavours evoking nostalgia, a sense of modernity and avant-garde tendencies at the same time.
I feel like I make music for all types of emotions and situations, I compile all my feelings and influences into what you hear and see from me
