Critical Praise for J*Davey:
"This Los Angeles duo specializes in baby-making music for 22nd century robots." - SPIN
"Davey and D'Leau have developed an utterly unique sub-genre of one within the stagnating neo-soul scene. This is perfect bedroom music." - URB
(February 22, 2011 - Brooklyn, NY) J*DaVeY is excited to release their free downloadable 5-song EP Evil Christian Cop today via their website jdavey.bandcamp.com . This release marks the duo's first release in over a year and is the second free EP in a series they call The Great Mistapes.
Evil Christian Cop was inspired by the dark undercurrents that exist in the phrase "To protect and serve." As producer Brook D'Leau explains, "Why should we rely on an evil stranger to protect and serve when you have the power to protect and serve yourself?" The EP features co-production by Greg Wells ("Teen Spirit"), GB ("Lazy Daze"), and LA-based lyricist DefSound. Full of synths, alluring vocals, and distinct production, the seductive twosome provide a dreamy soundscape for listeners to lose themselves in. Jack Davey and Brook leave all interpretations up to the listener. "We cannot provide the message, we simply provide the mental playground for the listeners' minds to go wild upon," says Brook.
J*DaVeY will be touring with rapper Blu from the West Coast to Texas to make their first SXSW appearance this year at the Audible Treats x PrefixMag.com showcase on Friday, March 18th at Nuvola. The duo will then tour the East Coast in April and Europe in May. Tour dates are available on their fan page: facebook.com/WeAreJDaVeY. With momentum steadily building throughout Spring, J*DaVeY will be releasing their full-length album New Designer Drug on their own label TheIllav8r.com this summer.

CHICAGO — Grammy-award winning rapper Che "Rhymefest" Smith has made it into a runoff race for a Chicago City Council seat.
With all precincts reporting, the rapper had 20 percent of the vote, trailing incumbent Alderman Willie Cochran, who had 46 percent. Since no candidate got more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two advance to the runoff.
The rapper, who's lived in Chicago for years, vowed to pick up support from three other candidates who did not make the runoff. He had received backing from the city's powerful Chicago Teachers' Union. His platform included bringing green business to the 20th Ward on the city's South Side, which includes some of the poorest neighborhoods in Chicago.
Rhymefest won a Grammy in 2004 for co-writing "Jesus Walks" with Kanye West.
