Don’t let the singular name fool you, Alexis Davis is a hip hop quartet comprised of three producers and one MC, from the US & UK. The trio of Mecca:83, Spinnerty, and Simon S. look after beats, production and scratching while Replife takes care of rhymes and lyricism’s.
Alexis Davis’ style has been labeled as ‘future music’, while it is forward-thinking it embraces hip hop’s origins, paying respect to the past. Their debut EP 3 displayed a fondness for a classic ’90s hip hop style filled with a smooth jazzy feel. The latest single ‘Look’ takes things up a notch, to a slightly more aggressive level with scratches, cuts and samples, yet retaining the head-nodding, bouncy beats, slick wordplay and smooth feel good hip hop vibe.
This is extremely impressive stuff. You can download ‘Look’ for free below and check out ‘The Lift’ and ’3′, taken from their debut EP.
