Seven Davis Jr
OUT 24th July 2015
Brand new release from one of Ninja Tunes many triple threats, Seven Davis Jr. A DJ, vocalist and producer with a production so raw he bridges the gap between tribal music and sexy electronic groves.
Seven Davis Jr will release his debut album Universes via Ninja Tune. Recorded in LA, San Francisco, Amsterdam and London, Seven Davis Jr has created a deeply personal piece of work.
The track 'Fighters' is one I particularly like. His smooth soulful vocals opens the track, with a steady undertone of electronic productions. Possibly symbolic of the on going issue of the people against the state, in the song he says he's "tired of the racists" and that "words are full of hate". As a musician creating art in this current time, it's hard to ignore the currently very heated climate.
Born in Houston, Texas, before relocating to Northern California, Seven Davis Jr was raised on the classics – from Michael Jackson and Prince to Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin. He studied gospel and jazz singing. Once he hit his teens, he discovered house and jungle.
