Josh Davids debuts on We Jack with ‘Number 1’

Share

Another newcomer to the We Jack label, Josh Davids makes a strong statement with his heavy-hitting single ‘Number 1’.

Leaping out the gate with raw, jacking drum grooves and a deep, driving, husky bassline, this track quickly gets the blood pumping and feet moving. The energy is built up throughout by retro-esque synth stabs, quick vocal chops, accented with hip-swaying, spirited percussion. The vocal chops develop over the track to reveal a more motivating message that will have listeners feeling themselves on the dance floor. As we make our return to the clubs and getting back to business, we expect this tune to do some damage to those speakers.

Josh Davids, born and bred in the iconic Scottish capital of Edinburgh, Bali-based artist Josh Davids’ relationship with electronic music has seen him follow an inspiringly cultured path through the years. Inspired by the likes of Faithless, Groove Armada, The Chemical Brothers and more, it’s no surprise that his mid-teens and introduction to the art of DJing saw Josh cut his teeth at illegal forest raves before moving on to clubland. Despite his definitive audio signature, Josh cites influence from a plethora of musical genres – even those outside the electronic realm. Mostly attributable to his artistic identity are some of the biggest names in modern house music.

Some of Josh’s biggest creative inspirations include the likes of Martin Ikin, Chris Lake and Patrick Topping – among others. Josh’s infectious energy and interactivity behind the decks have seen him feature alongside some of the biggest names in House music including Cut Snake, Major Lazer, Gene Farris, Tim Baresko, David Penn, Fatboy Slim, Patrick Topping, Doorly, Illyus & Barrientos, Mat.Joe and many more.

Outside of the booth, Josh’s efforts in the studio have seen him collate an impressive stream of releases on commendable labels such as Zulu Records, Cr2 Records, Enormous Tunes, Wh0 Plays Records, Solotoko, Soko Records, and Wyldcard Records.

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
