Happy Birthday to DeVante Swing! The superproducer and Jodeci co-founder is 48 years old today (September 29).
DeVante was the architect of Jodeci’s famous sound, and was one of the producers who led R&B away from the new jack swing sounds that dominated the early 1990s and into the more smoothed-out hip-hop soul era that would come to define the rest of the decade.
Outside of Jodeci, DeVante was in-demand as a songwriter and a producer. Even before Jodeci debuted with Forever My Lady, DeVante was working the boards with Al B. Sure! on Sure’s sophomore album. He worked with Mary J. Blige, 2Pac, Father MC, H-Town and, of course, was a mentor to Timbaland and Missy.
