Seven Davis Jr Announces November Residency At The Nest

Fiercely individual and cosmically inclined US DJ, producer and vocalist Seven Davis Jr has announced a month-long residency at The Nest in Dalston, East London. The producer released his lauded Universes debut album via Ninja Tune this summer. The identically named four-part residency will see Seven joined by a cast of kindred spirits from the parallel dimensions of funk, soul and house.

Universes kicks off on November 6th with Funkineven and Sassy J. On November 13th it’s Davis plus Marcellus Pittman and Josey Rebelle. Davis will perform a live set on November 20 alongside sets from Andrew Ashong and Reginald Omas Mamode IV. Finally November 27th sees our man by Osunlade and Tasker.

The mercurial Davis has created music across a variety of genres since turning his back on a career in gospel music in his teens, much of it behind the scenes as a producer and ghostwriter. Having battled with addiction and other travails, a catalytic moment arrived when KUTMAH heard his early music and encouraged him to release it. These recordings eventually saw the light of day as The Lost Tapes Vol.1. Last year he was picked up by Ninja Tune who released his Wild Hearts 12″ followed by the ambitious debut LP Universes.
