Roy Davis Jr.
Trax From The Nile

If you haven't been lucky enough to hear Roy Davis Jr., take this chance. His latest album for the Montreal deep house label Bombay is a collection of exceptional soul-house tracks that combine thoughtfully written and melodic deep house with his own work as an outstanding vocalist. The press release mentions 70's Stevie Wonder but you can easily add Prince and a dose of Inner City as influences on his work. Having recorded tracks for labels like Strictly Rhythm, Force Inc, Power Music, and worked as part of the Phuture crew, the Chicago based producer has been able to shape his electronic soul into tunes with enough stomp for Danny Tenaglia and the emotion to become a modern soul classic. Even if the rest of the album wasn't as memorable as it is, "About Love" is quickly becoming a personal favorite and will give you an embarrassing white man overbite in no time. -Justin Hardison
