Von Sell (David Von Sell), first emerged on the scene in Brooklyn in 2016 via his debut self-titled EP, quickly gaining peoples attention and finding acclaim from the likes of The Fader, Paste, Earmilk & more.
Originally from Germany, Von Sell attended the Berklee College of Music, before leaving to craft his own sound and future in NYC. His debut project was the first step, and things certainly got started on the right foot – that is before he started suffering from unexplained vocal discomfort and pain. Going back and forth to doctors seemed to lead him nowhere, so he returned back to Germany in seek of answers and the comfort of being at home.
After resting for 6 months, Von Sell returned to his Brooklyn studio and his latest release is his first back since his vocal scare. For “Hell No‘, he partnered with NYU‘s Steinhardt students and Village Records and collaborated with grammy winning producer, Juan Cristobal Losada on a tune that is about, “being conflicted and in denial about love, infatuation and losing yourself in your desire for another.”
The Mid-Tempo tune brings a bit of funk behind the layered vocals with rhythmic guitar plucks, rolling basslines and jazzy elements that come in and out with no warning. Overall the tune has a smooth vibe and allows Von Sell to once again showcase his abilities in an original and dynamic way. With some classic production techniques, new wave feel and intriguing arrangement, his latest is a testament to his durability and refusal to give up – and his fans couldn’t be happier.
