Tall Black Guy drops “We Rollin’ for You” as tribute single for DJ Devastate

To celebrate and remember the life of the late Swedish disc-jockey DJ DevastateCoalmine and Sweden’s Counterweight Records have teamed up with gifted producer Tall Black Guy for the release of a stunning new single “We Rollin’ for You ” - a tribute to the memory of the late DJ. The lush instrumental track is bursting with life, stellar percussion, hypnotizing vocals, and two special live elements, guitar, and sax, that really bring the composition home. As it happens, Devastate and TBG were actually discussing a collaboration a week or so prior to the Swedish artist’s passing in March 2018. While they sadly never had the opportunity to work together, TBG felt compelled to produce something that he felt captured Dev’s spirit. In doing so, he created the soul-lifting and beautifully layered “We Rollin’ for You.

The release is further complemented with two equally wondrous remixes, produced by Devastate's close friends and creative partners, Max I Million and Ion Zaar, where you can hear how they utilize TBG’s arrangement and flip it in their own unique ways. Max I Million's remix has a more toned down vibe with moody textures and warm basslines while the drums peer in and out without clashing with the mix. Ion Zaar's take on the beat has a more Salsa vibe with respect to the percussions and the way he chopped up the vocals and filtered them gave it a whole new ethereal feel.
Get “We Rollin’ for You,” on all DSPs here. The track’s also available on vinyl as a limited edition 7” 45 via TBG’s Bandcamp, Fat Beats online, select stores, as well as Coalmine records site, where they are offering a 15% discount for using promo code ROLLIN.
