About Roy Davis Jr:
Roy Davis Jr. is, in no uncertain terms, a legendary DJ and producer from Chicago who has helped to define electronic music. His self titled soul-electronic sound is a hybrid of garage, disco, r&b, house, hip hop and soul and it has graced everything from underground imprints to major league labels since way back in the 1990′s, including the likes of Defected, Strictly Rhythm, King Street Sounds, XL Recordings and Universal, Sony and Warner Brothers.
As a DJ Roy Davis Jr. commands dancefloors and festival stages all over the world with his tight and masterful mixing at places like Smart Bar in Chicago, Yellow in Japan and Fabric in London. Initially turned on to the possibilities of dance music by DJ Pierre, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Marshall Jefferson, and Lil’ Louis, Roy started spinning himself at the age of 12 and during the early 19902 was asked to work as and A&R scout for Strictly Rhythm in New York. Of course, you can’t mention Roy Davis Jr. without mentioning “Gabriel,” released in 1996 on Large Music out of Chicago, Gabriel was tune of the year and still fetches high prices on Discogs today.
Since then Roy has penned or appeared on chart-topping releases for those including Eric Benet/Faith Evans, Mary J. Blige, Seal and Morcheeba, and has had his own highly rated Chicago Urban House Radio show on Scion 17 for over 3 years. His original productions and remix work garnered rave reviews in such publications as Rolling Stone, URB, Flaunt and Vibe and many more. In April 2014 Roy will release his latest full length, Destroy and Rebuild, on Mile End and Soul Electric Records. Featuring vocals from people like the hallowed Robert Owens, it is yet another exciting new chapter in the ever evolving story that is Roy Davis Jr.
About Mr. V:
Experiencing Mr. V’s DJ sets, original productions, or remixes is like taking a trip back in time to dance music’s golden age. Before superstar DJs took over the spotlight, dance music was a cultural phenomenon that did what no other form of music could do – bring people together. It didn’t matter what race or sexual orientation you came from because dance music was all about embracing our differences and creating a homogeneous vibe.
The music was built heavily on traditional song structures and lots of heart and soul. DJs played whatever it took to get the party going and the music was never predictable.
It is with this classic spirit and enthusiasm that New York City’s Mr. V targets today’s dance music world.
