Try Me (Ill Funk You)
Try Me (Ill Funk You) (Mono/Poly Remix)
LA-based producer and vocalist Seven Davis Jr truly possesses a technique all his own–one that combines elements of funk and tech-house/disco for a fresh, dance floor ready sound. His debut album Universes, which dropped last month, encapsulates that style giving long-time fans a treat while taking the his audience size to new levels with infectious tunes like “Sunday Morning” providing the perfect amount of accessibility without sacrificing artistry. For those more familiar with EDM than old-school house and techno, which is probably most TMN readers, Davis’ music helps bridge the gap and might just tempt you to dive down the musical rabbit hole of the still thriving, legendary tech-house scenes of Chicago, Detroit and San Francisco.
As a bonus track to his critically acclaimed project, Davis has released yet another funktastic banger with “Try Me (I’ll Funk You).” Featuring his own strangely hypnotizing vocals backed by a bouncy, steadily building groove, it’s a great introduction to Seven Davis Jr’s approach for those not yet familiar. Along with the single comes an absolutely stunning remix from Brainfeeder producer Mono/Poly who completely flips “Try Me” into an equally irresistible psychedelic hip-hop tinted jam. It’s a rare situation where original and remix are both incredible but in altogether different ways.
