Mr. One Hundred
Paul B. Davis Presents Mr. One Hundred
Top Nice UK
Info The first vinyl release from Top Nice UK after running nights in London and Stockholm for 8 years, it's also the first release for Paul B. Davis under his Mr. One Hundred alias. This synthed-out, 808-heavy 12 reflects Mr. One Hundred's versatility as a producer and an ear informed by London's musical milieu. Soca rhythms, West African drum patterns, analog synth arpeggios, 808 trap snare rolls and half step bass are de-constructed, flipped, and re-assembled into compelling tracks with searching emotions and a singular vision.
Paul B. Davis is a UK-based producer, born in St. Louis, USA, and living in London since the early 2000's.
