Hubie Davison (IE)
Hailing from Ireland and previously studying music composition in London, Hubie Davison synthesizes the emotive melodicism of artists like John Talabot and Caribou with the bare grooviness of Nicolas Jaar, incorporating phantasmagorical vocal samples into a refined instrumental palette. His debut release I Won’t Be There on Berlin’s Leisure System was the first introduction to Davison’s fully-formed feel for mellow grooves, and he moved further towards the dancefloor with the release of 2014′s Khayyam Grey, also on Leisure System, and “Sanctified,” out on Midland’s ReGraded label and drawing attention throughout the summer of 2015. Those recent 12”s are a snapshot of the 26-year-old Davison’s DJing, which incorporates all manner of memorable house and assorted wonkiness and has seen him play at Panorama Bar, Corsica Studios, Longitude Festival, and Gaité lyrique in Paris.
