Biography

Jerome Davis is a producer, DJ, audio engineer based out of Lexington Park, Maryland. Jerome’s music of choice is steeped in hip-hop and rap instrumentals that contain equal doses of dance, experimental, and club sounds. Many of the early songs were created to accompany surfing and skateboarding videos. Though, as a self-taught musician constantly looking for ways to defy conventional music theory, Jerome refuses to be compartmentalized and bound by traditional forms of musical expression. In order to bridge the gap between the melodic hip-hop and dirty south instrumentals of the past with the dubstep instrumentals of the present, Jerome combines years of hip-hop, rap, cinema sounds, andelectronic dance music experiience with a forward-thinking mindset.

 

The symphonic crescendos, keyboard embellishments, and urban beats with hip-shakingand foot-stomping madness highlight Jerome’s instrumental achievements. Oftentimes, musical inventiveness occurs when previously defined musical genres are shattered and the implication for new reorganization and reassessment is needed. Jerome takes the music-making process to a higher level by practicing the self-coined mantra: “Darkside Meets Dancefloor.” Jerome’s combination of instrumental hip-hop and dance music resemble the work of Clams Casino, Da Riffs and Sledgren. Jerome has produced over 100 independent hip-hop songs for various artists nationally and abroad.

 

Since the musical inspiration depends on specific points in Jerome’s life, new works capture the growth and plethora of song styles and influences that invade the musical precipice of hip-hop. While many artists focus on lyrical wordplay, Jerome sets his sights and sounds on the instrumental effects of music that reach beyond the surface and probe the darker depths of human achievements. Jerome is currently serving the urban artist community as a music producer, engineer and business coach in N. Virginia, So. Maryland & Washington, DC.
