NEW MUSIC: Alexis Davis – 3
by Gregorio Vincent
Two countries. Two time zones. Three DJ/producers. One MC.
The group Alexis Davis is not all about simple mathematics. It is a collaboration of four fans of one another’s music that decided to come together, at a time when coming together is of the essence. Alexis Davis are: DJ/Producers Mecca:83 aka Rise, Simon S, Spinnerty, and MC replife (“one of the freshest emcees out there” according Gilles Peterson).
Musically, Alexis Davis is about break beats, scratches, cuts, and samples; and all of these elements are served with a fresh jazz sensibility and an aperitif of what has been labeled “future music.” The end result is a dream-like collection of tracks that manage to project the future of hip-hop music while maintaining its foundational origins.
From the UK to the US to your ears – Alexis Davis is the past and the future of hip hop. Let the transformation begin.
