Whilst FunkinEven is certainly speaking with no little bias when he describes Davis as, ‘the new Prince’, listening to the material from him so far, and his upcoming release for FunkinEven’s Apron Records, the sense that something special afoot is nigh on inescapable.

We were understandably delighted then, when the chance came up for us to host the first ever official mix from Seven Davis Jr.

You can stream or download it below – head here read a little breakdown on seven of the tunes featured in the mix, from the man himself.
