Integrating a variety of electronic dance styles and influences ranging from Depeche Mode and Daft Punk to A$AP Rocky, American producer Sage DeVault is better known by his stylized surname DEVAULT. Often sharing an expansive, orchestrated sound, he began releasing original productions, collaborations, and remixes in 2016, and quickly garnered several million streams for tracks including 2016's "Nothing New" and his 2017 remix of DJ Snake's "A Different Way." His debut EP, Stay, arrived in 2018.
A native of Orange County, California, DeVault started piecing together tracks as a hobby before beginning to perform and promote his music in his late teens. Early streaming breakthroughs included 2016's "Right with You" and "Nothing New." The latter featured drummer Joe Zizzo (the Sleeping, Sky Ferreira). Other early collaborators included StéLouse and Team Ezy, and Ayelle was featured on his track "Don't You Want To," released by Deadbeats in 2017. That year also saw DEVAULT remixes of Rihanna, Lorde, and Billie Eilish. He toured with Zeds Dead in late 2017 and finished out the year with a remix of "A Different Way" by DJ Snake that became his most well-known track yet. He followed it with "Leave Me Now" on Deadbeats in early 2018 before releasing his debut for Geffen Records, "Stay" featuring Njomza and Bipolar Sunshine, mid-year. The Stay EP followed later in 2018.
