Roy Davis Jr.

Added on board the Chicago house production team Phuture as a replacement for DJ Pierre, Roy Davis, Jr. later followed his mentor to New York and worked at Strictly Rhythm, recording his own singles for Force Inc., Big Big Trax and Power Music. Originally born in California, Davis moved to Chicago's south side early in his childhood. After being turned on by legendary acid-house pioneers like Phuture and Lil' Louis, he became a DJ and began recording as well with his first single, "20 Below," recorded for the Jack Trax label.

When DJ Pierre began producing for New York-based labels like Jive and Strictly Rhythm during the late '80s, he decided to leave both Chicago and Phuture. Davis spent a year in New York as well, working A&R and production for Strictly Rhythm before moving back to Chicago and stepping into DJ Pierre's place. Davis debuted with 1992-93 Phuture singles like "Rise from Your Grave" and "Inside Out," both of which were recorded for Strictly Rhythm. While Phuture was temporarily on hold in 1994, Davis began concentrating on his own productions again. He released People from Mars for Power Music, and recorded singles for Large and Big Big Trax as well. The Big Big Trax Compilation was collected in 1996, and Roy Davis, Jr. & DJ Mix appeared in 1998. A Phuture reunion (as Phuture 303) resulted in the 1998 album Alpha & Omega, after which Davis left the group once again. Soul Electrica followed on Peacefrog in 1999. ~ John Bush, Rovi
