Mario Mundle, more popularly known as De’Vious started making music at 15, with his witty flows, lyrical content and vocal clarity, which will truly separate him from the rest and aid him in becoming a force to be reckoned with in Dancehall music.
Moving from Dunrobin Primary school on to the prestigious Calabar High School in 2000, this environment exposed De’Vious to different types of friends and activties; playing football, chill, reason and sing songs for his pairs. Moving from the world of sports, he made a musical transition after three years of high school.
De’Vious started to write music mainly to please family and friends and as a result, he was influenced to pursue music seriously as a career. In 2006, his cousin, Razzy introduced him to Stevie G, the owner and founder of G3Musik an independent label based in Kingston, where De’Vious has built quite a reputation for himself.
With songs like, Inna Mi Thoughts for which the video premiered on HYPE TV and also Still A Party on G3Musik’s After Summer Riddim, which has been in rotation on radio, De’Vious has become a must watch Dancehall act going forward.
On December 8 of last year, De’Vious released his second mixtape entitled, Wire Dem featuring 15 tracks from various producers throughout Jamaica and overseas. De’Vious’ sound, creative conecpts and style of music is bound to take off without a doubt. With songs of substance, this recording artist aims to make a valid statement on the local and international scene.
