 Release info:

Devonté Hynes has produced a lot of music. Some for himself (Test Icicles, Lightspeed Champion), some for others (Basement Jaxx, Florence & The Machine, Theophilus London, Solange Knowles, Cassie, Diana Vickers), and somewhere in between all of this, Blood Orange was created.

Informed by the equally neon atmosphere of Chris Issack, Billy Idol, 80s Japanese pop such as Yellow Magic Orchestra and French singer FR David, and also by transgender icons such as Octavia St Laurent and the playful high-gloss nihilsm of Gregg Araki movies, Hynes took the songs that form ‘Coastal Grooves’ on a trip to the West Coast where he worked with producer Ariel Rechtshaid in LA.
