recently played his own headlining dates and took part in five stops with the touring Identity Festival
"I started doing (electronic music) for fun. I didn't now what was gonna happen with it," Davis
in a recent interview. "Making electronic music and learning to produce and learning my new instrument — laptop, I call it — has been an amazing thing. I'm learning and I'm having fun playing my own tunes. I've really had to re-train myself. It's totally different than writing rock songs."
He added, "There's always haters and people going, 'What the fuck is he doing?!' But there have been people who have taken me on and helped me. A lot of the big DJs have helped me, and most of the people have been pretty open and digging it. I just did a gig during the Grammys
or something and Skrillex
showed up to watch my set, and I've gone on tour with my friend Sluggo
and had Datsik
have me show up at their shows and play with them onstage. It's just fun; I love that scene, I love the kids, I love everything about it, and I'm so happy to be part of it."
The debut J DEVIL
EP will be released later this year on Steve Aoki
