about

The second release on Kutmah’s IZWID imprint is a rare collection of bugged out electronic soul from the Los Angeles-based vocalist, producer and poet, Seven Davis Jr. “The Lost Tapes Vol. 1” spans 12 years of experimental, cosmic out-of-body-and-mind music, of mostly four and eight track recordings once lost in storage via a lengthly hiatus due to drug addiction and depression.

Resurfacing in 2012, Seven Davis Jr.’s ‘Thanks’ appeared on Kutmah’s much lauded “Worldwide Family Vol. 2” compilation on Brownswood Recordings, after which the kaleidoscopic artist released the clattering funked beats of “Lo-Fi Vintage” and house-inspired “One” EP.

For IZWID, “The Lost Tapes Vol. 1” is a creative blueprint for Davis Jr.’s brilliantly unorthodox approach with his beautifully raw drums and psychotropic harmonies. “I made a lot of this music many years ago and other labels and artists hated on me for it,” says Davis Jr. of the lost tapes. “They said it was too weird, too different, sounded like drug music (it was) and they told me I was going to hell, for ‘Pornostar’. Years later; new life, new city, new day and age. I found the music again, which I never stopped loving and decided to send it all to Kutmah.”
