Words by LargeUp Crew
Hailing from the foothills of Kingston, Jamaica, DejaVilla is the artistic partnership of musicians David Marston and Sarah Couch (daughter of the late, legendary Jamaican singer-songwriter-chef Suzanne Couch).
Their music is a fluid, distinctive range of sounds and styles, with roots in their motherland, and influences from their world travels. DejaVilla first made impact in October 2018 with their debut single, “Suit a Rebel” (Ultra Music), which features vocals from Los Angeles-based Jamaican artist Kat C.H.R. and dub reggae pioneer Lee “Scratch” Perry.
The duo launches into 2019 with the new single “Ochi to Mobay,” an ode to sexual independence and fierce self-confidence. As s lead vocalist Sarah summarizes, “Hot gyal nuh beg fren or run down man because Pum Pum run tings. Awoah!”
