His ease for captivation is seemingly effortless, while his music explores various themes ranging from love, social issues, and cultural observations, infusing immersive soundscapes with deep introspection.
In his newly released 4-track EP Daddy’s Home, DVTÈ delivers an emotionally expansive effort through vibrant yet precise production that encapsulates R&B and Afrobeat sounds. Sonic elements enter the fray one at a time, making their presence known, stacking on top of one another, and falling away to create a constantly reinventing backdrop. Though the EP is filled with gentle yet captivating vocals, its trance-like rhythm is compelling, and the meat of this EP lies truly in its lyrics. DVTÈ invites us in for a moment of poignant reflection.

Through his hypnotic and impassioned R&B prowess, DVTÈ’s achieves a simple response with the EP: uplift spirits and make people move.
