Classic unveils a two-track EP from enigmatic Texas-born artist Seven Davis Jr. ‘Iss Good / Problematic’. Growing up inspired by legendary Black vocalists Prince, Aretha and Stevie, Seven Davis Jr. honed his classic gospel and jazz training into soulful, electronic house with a distinct artistic edge, garnering attention for his self-released work and ushering in a wave of releases from top labels.
In the ten years since releasing ‘Friends EP’ on Classic, the singular artist has worked with Honey Dijon, John Cale, Fourtet, Hot Chip and shared the stage with Moodymann, Flying Lotus and Gilles Peterson. He now demonstrates the evolution of his sound with ‘Iss Good / Problematic EP’, a headsy two-track package spearheaded by the lead, possessing a low-to-the-floor swag rarely seen in house music today. ‘Problematic’ follows, featuring vocals and production from Californian music and movement artist Coflo, another artistic and understated four-to-the-floor thumper featuring ethereal vocals echoing from across the room.
