Back in March, Houston artist E Bleu made a big return with his new single “3am,” a D1-produced effort that saw the rising star speaking to late nights and early mornings. Now, he delivers a remix of the infectious cut that sees Atlanta talent Derez De’Shon coming along for the ride with some debaucherous tales of his own. Via press release, Bleu spoke on how he connected with De’Shon to create the melodic offering:
“I’m big on things happening organically. It started with Derez genuinely liking the song and showing me love just off that. I stopped in ATL for a promo tour a few weeks back and the rest is history. We left the studio at like 8am lol. Bro is one of the most solid people in this music thing.”
A decade prior, E Bleu started making waves by creating music alongside Brockhampton member Kevin Abstract, releasing tracks together like “Beyond Our Dreams” and “Two Of Us.” Much later, he would join forces with producer K3yboarrdkid for “Me Time,” and — more recently — continued to build his momentum with high quality drops like “Action” and “Sit Right,” the latter of which featured Kap G. Thanks to its success, “Me Time” subsequently saw a remix featuring contributions from Eric Bellinger and 24hrs.
Last year, Derez De’Shon unveiled his latest body of work Pain 3, the third installment of his well-received Pain series. That release saw 19 cuts and additional appearances from A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Boosie Badazz, G 5aby, Paxquiao, and the currently incarcerated rapper Ralo. Earlier this month, De’Shon also provided some bars for Quin NFN’s “Have My Way.”
