(Words from Alexis Davis)
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:
Replife – Cleveland, USA
Mecca:83 – Manchester, UK
Spinnerty – San Fran, USA
Simon S – London, UK
The first seeds for Alexis Davis were sown in 2005 when Replife visited London to record with Mecca:83 (then going by the name of “Rise”) for his debut Album “The Unclosed Mind”: The record was eventually released on Simon S' Futuristica Music imprint in 2007. Following Replife's move to San Francisco in 2009 and a chance meeting with Spinnerty, the cogs were began falling into place. Add on to that a further three years of bi-continental travels and the foundations for the four piece Hip Hop group were set.
London based producer Mecca:83 was generous to lace the Roy Ayers Project email with this beautiful track, and requested that it be released for free download for our readers. Please enjoy this sample of what Alexis Davis has to offer, and you will surely be on the lookout for their EP, which is soon to be released. This track entitled Closer to Ubiquity featuring Ms. Cecilia Stalin, is a tribute that would make Roy Ayers proud. This song can only be described as pure bliss.
