I went on an insane music tear that night (we’re talking next level) and pretty much have enough blog fodder to last me an entire month. I’m really exciting to share some of my new discoveries with you guys in the coming weeks! Anyway, I digress. “That Fever” by Davidge—a.k.a. the legendary Neil Davidge—has gripped me something terrible! (Too cheesy?) Neil is well-known as the long-time collaborator and co-writer for Massive Attack. He played a crucial role in bringing about the group’s famous Mezzanine album and is often credited with shaping the group’s darker influences. I know. I feel like most of you know how much I love Massive Attack and admire their immense contribution to the music scene. If I’m ever forced to take only a few albums to a desert island, you can bet Mezzanine is my first choice. So here I am in 2015 firing through Google searches and music blogs, when I come across Neil’s solo album. At the time, I didn’t know Davidge was THE Neil Davidge. I thought the music sounded eerily familiar, but that’s about it. Imagine my surprise when I found out! Serendipity at its finest. All this to say that this single is really beautiful. If you like Massive Attack or any kind of gentle trip hop, you will love this song. It also cements my belief that all musical genius is born in Bristol. Seriously, look it up.
