Tuesday 22 October sees the Sound History tour land in Manchester’s Antwerp Mansion (check the other dates below). The tour brings together some of the UK’s finest UKG and deep house acts, plus Chicago’s Roy Davis Jr – both heritage artists and newcomers alike. Affordable entry but without compromise on the line up, this should be a sick one. We caught up with Ubiquity legend Roy Davis Jr below.
What are you up to these days? And who are you working with?
Well, at the moment I just finished my album on Mile End Records. Currently I am working with Terry Dexter & UK vocalists Yasmin and MNEK. I also just finished a remix for Disclosure and am currently remixing Rudimental, who just went platinum. Just staying on top of things in the studio with some touring, still in the mix, stay tuned!
How do you feel about the current state of dance music?
I think dance music is at a great state right now, it’s wide open for good music with groups selling platinum, with tons of number 1 records out there. The dance market is out selling hip hop currently, so with that all being said there’s a great horizon ahead.
What’s special about the Sound History tour?
This is one of those tours I feel that I can get loose on with freedom of expression of music! From where I started in house to where I am today, just good music from garage house to Chicago tracks – a journey into the future of sound!!
Any dubplates lined up?
I wont be playing any dubplates but I will be playing tons of fresh new sounds from my album and new unreleased remixes.
Tell us something that no one else knows about you?
Lol! Well my middle name is Earl. Which makes my initials R.E.D.
Now you know. 😉
