Electronic music producer Holmes Ives & classically trained vocalist Devika have collaborated to create “Jab Se Piya,” a soulful electronic ballad. Ives, who harkens from the English progressive music scene with DJs like Paul Oakenfold, has slowed down the beat here, and Devika, featured on sufi compilations with artists like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, has evoked a memorable Indian vocal. Includes remixes from the cream of the Six Degrees Records roster – Karsh Kale, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Midival Punditz.


Holmes Ives productions cross boundaries – transcending cultures and unconfined by musical genres. From his haunting melodies and delicate vocals to driving large space elements, Ives adds a unique perceptive dimension to every composition he creates. In 2005, Ives exploded onto the international electronic music stage with his chart-topping single ‘8 Letters’ featuring vocalist Avalon Frost. Described as “sheer genius” by the press, the track’s timeless lyrics and message “eight letters, three words, barely, rarely heard” resonated with thousands of people around the globe. With a professional music career spanning over two decades, Ives has produced for top dance labels including: Bedrock, Yoshitoshi, Renaissance, Hope Recordings, and Six Degrees. He has worked with and remixed artists such as Seroya, Bebel Gilberto, Moby and BT. Ives has released over 40 singles, and his tracks have been licensed by the world’s top DJ’s for over 50 mix compilations.
