Roy Davis Jr (Chicago)

Roy David Jr Roy Davis Jr. was introduced to dance music by the late 1980’s with legends such as DJ Pierre, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Marshall Jefferson, and Lil’ Louis. “I’ve always been in to Music but these were the DJs that really inspired me. Lil’ Louis was always my favorite DJ because he knew how to play it all, from Mellow, Club, Classics and Big Room! he was so diverse – he taught me how to mix it up, that’s how I got my style,” says Davis Jr. “ I started DJ'ing myself when I was 12 or 13, spinning breaks, Italian disco, then house.”

The big turning point for Roy Davis Jr. was in 1993. While in college he was asked to work as and A&R scout for Strictly Rhythm in NYC. Once a member of the group “Phuture” Responsible for producing “Rise From Your Grave” A huge record for Strictly Rhythm, He went out to the East Coast weekly, and was subsequently hired to start his own sub-label called Red Cat records. You can’t mention Roy Davis Jr. without mentioning “Gabriel,” Released in 1996 on Large Music out of Chicago, “Gabriel: was hailed “Dance Tune Of The Year” Once XL Recordings licensed the song by countless publications worldwide and sold by the truckload. Produced with vocalist and multi-talented musician Peven Everett, “Gabriel: is a certified house music anthem that sounds as fresh as the day it was made and it just got remade again this year for Jess Mills a top notch vocalist on Universal Island Music. Also credited by some with kick-starting the UK garage scene it was a tune that would change Roy’s musical direction and take him back to his spiritual roots.

Chart-topping releases such as The Believers ”Who Dares To Believe In Me” “Enjoy The Ride”, “Modjo Lady” “Join his Kingdom,” “Next To Me” with Fred Everything and “Rock Shock” licensed to Daft Punk’s label which also made it into a Alvin Ailey Broadway Dance Play by the name of “Grace”, Roy Davis Jr was the only Artist to this day who was signed to Thomas Bangalter’s Label Roule’ out of Paris, he also performed at clubs such as the Queen Club, Paris, Ministry of Sound, London, Chicago's Metro/Smartbar, Troubador, Los Angeles whilst also performing at festivals such as Cream Fields, Wakarusa & Coachella. The talented Davis also spent a large part of his earlier career creating billboard chart records for Eric Benet/Faith Evans, Mary J. Blidge, Seal, Patti LaBelle, Terry Dexter, Christina Milian, and Morcheeba. His original productions and remix work garnered rave reviews in such publications as Rolling Stone, URB, Flaunt and Vibe, Spin & many more.

Fast forward to 2014 and Roy still remains one of the worlds most prolific DJ's & producers in the history of House & Garage. Once again returning to what Roy loves most, Davis continues to push boundaries with his DJ sets and ongoing production projects.
