"Esprit" is a four-song lo-fi house EP from producer Sport Wolf. It's now available everywhere digitally as well as on CD.
"Sport Wolf is Devin Reed, a 23 year old who holds a degree in industrial design, but makes a pretty addicting form of melodic dance floor music. It goes down easy too, with Reed opting for short run times on tracks which is somewhat unique for this style. Reed literally grew up next door to Detroit dj legend Derrick May, and his parents were djs as well — so there’s an authenticity in the bloodline of his music that I think you can hear." - Northern Transmissions
Sport Wolf is Devin Reed. A Los Angeles based electronic musician originally from Detroit, Michigan whose career began with sampling records and playing in alternative rock bands during high school. After which he began to make a name for himself as a DJ and producer while attending college both in the states and abroad, self-releasing his first mixtape, Manchester Sounds, in 2014 under the name Aspen-85.
"The simple answer to how Sport Wolf’s biography informs his sound is that he’s a Detroit guy who transplanted to L.A., but once you get to know him even a little bit, you see that the truth is that he’s a serial self-transplanter, whose influences are many, various, and global." - Alec Coiro, Ravelin Magazine
Devin best describes his sound as “Aesthetically driven. I like to dance between minimal and chaotic.” While citing his most notable influences as “All the Detroit legends like Derrick May and Robert Hood of course, The Smiths, UK Garage artist such as MJ Cole, and certainly the French House sound. Pretty much all of the alternative dance music of the 90’s” He laughs.
Devin holds a degree in Industrial Design and recently made the move from Detroit to the Los Angeles, where he hopes to further his artistic and musical career. He can be found “Obsessively working on his computer while drinking espresso" in the cafés of Echo Park.
