Portland R&B songstress Reva DeVito recently came together with record producer B. Bravo to form their new band Umii, and we can’t get enough. The duo just released one of the grooviest disco-influenced dance records of the year. Umii proves their flexibility via their ‘This Time’ EP, which showcases disco tracks, R&B anthems, house and more.
Earlier this month, Umii released their debut single Masquerade which was a huge step for the duo. The track was paired with a silky smooth, rose-tinted music video to match. The music video was a disco dreamlike movie; crystal balls, pink curtains, confetti and streamers.
The duo now presents us with their debut project, ‘This Tiime’ via Fresh Selects. The eight-track collection of songs are everything that we hoped a Reva DeVito and B. Bravo collaboration to sound like. Reva DeVito is on the heels of her debut EP ‘The Move’ which was produced by Kaytranada, Com Truise, and more. The EP was released by HW&W in 2016 and was a smash in the R&B community. B. Bravo is a Los Angeles-based record producer who is fresh off the release of his own ‘Paradise LP’. The producer is supported by Mr. Carmack, Soulection and more.
DeVito and Bravo recently did a US Tour together which Reva on vocals and Bravo on keys/DJing. The two hit states like Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles and more, and were even featured on the world-famous KEXP for a live performance.
