Seven Star, the name alone could not be better suited. The number associated with God or the gods. Seven, of Puerto Rican decent, wrote his first rhyme in 1987. He was born in New York and was raised in Santurce, Puerto Rico. Around the age of 12 Seven and his mother packed up and moved to Miami, Florida due to the lack of jobs in P.R. With a Christian backround he and his mother began going to church. Various talent shows and events at church helped him better his skills as a writer and performer. When the time came to proceed beyond his religous beliefs and begin his individual evolution his journey really began. To hear Seven Star is to hear the mind and wisdom of the ancients speak through him. Touching on all subjects relating to humanity from man-women realtionships to the injustices bestowed on the natives of the island once known as Borike'n, Seven' message is universal and his flow and delivery will inspire, whether spoken or written. His honesty will make you think and react in the tradition of those who inspired him such as Malcolm X, Pedro Albizu Campos, KRS-1 and Ginsberg. Seven Star is currently working on new music and will continue contributing to Hip Hop culture' evolution for as long as he can. Check for all Seven Star related issues on the sites provided below.

Seven Star has performed throughout the world in places such as Paris, France/ Berlin, Germany/ Sheffield, England/ Vigo, Spain/ Oahu, Hawaii as well as throughout the United States. 

Seven currently resides in Miami, Florida

From Audible Treats:

Download: J*Davey's Free "Evil Christian Cop" EP

5-song EP Available On JDavey's page.

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 . 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 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: With momentum steadily building throughout Spring, J*DaVeY will be releasing their full-length album New Designer Drug on their own label this summer.
