Korn’s Jonathan Davis Joins Dim Mak Roster Under Name Of JDevil
I suppose after the release of Korn’s latest album, The Path of Totality, which featured collaborations with various dubstep producers including Skrillex, 12th Planet, Excision, Datsik, Downlink, Kill The Noise, Noisia, and Feed Me, we should have expected something like this. That’s right, Korn’s frontman Jonathan Davis has joined Dim Mak’s roster and kicks off his debut DJ tour today under the name of JDevil.
“My DJ persona just represents indulgence. Do what you want, have fun and live your life—as long as you’re not hurting yourself or anybody. I’m excited as hell to be working with Steve Aoki and the entire Dim Mak crew for the release of my EP later this year,” says Davis.
I’ll be the first to admit that I was never a huge fan of Korn, however, I greatly respect Davis, and believe him to be one of the most talented names in music. For that reason, I have no doubt that he is going to do some big things with this new DJ/producing gig. I also have to say that I thought the Path of Totality was a brilliantly produced album, and one of the best attempts at a rock/dubstep fusion that we’ve heard to date.
