In times of trouble music can provide relief for the soul, and DAVIE‘s triumphant Defected debut ‘Testify‘ does exactly that. A joyous introduction to the Brooklyn artist, this release demonstrates an ability to strike the balance between classic and contemporary seamlessly.
Steeped in music from a young age, DAVIE followed the path many soul greats did before him, joining the choir in a local church where his father was a pastor. Describing ‘Testify‘ as, “a dance song not a gospel song,” the record remains inspired by his upbringing up in the church, radiating all the energy and atmosphere of worship in full flow. Rich instrumentation provides the backdrop for DAVIE‘s flawless vocals, along with a serious dose of funk, making this label debut nothing short of a future classic.
