Device label head and BBC boss René LaVice hits us where it hurts with the first release of 2021 on his ever-essential imprint.

Featuring none other than Los Angeles’ own Richter and Dr. Apollo, the goosebump-inducing single has us absolutely aching for those long summer nights under the stars. Centered on the vocals of Gracie Van Brunt, “I’ve Been Waiting” is centered on a subtle but stunning groove that instantly tugs on the heartstrings and doesn’t let go.

It’s a massive collaboration and the perfect start to the new year. Check the cut below and prepare to wash away all that pandemic pain with the sweet, sweet cleansing power of music.
