Mr Day

biography

Mr Day first started out on the acid jazz scene, and his first soul funk band called the Kool Kats Club shared a label and several gigs with other headlining bands at the time such as Corduroy or Mother Earth.

By the end of 1990, he signed onto label Rotax and began collaborating with Pascal Rioux, producing several soul/house tracks under the name Pascal & Mr Day, such as "Place Is Rockin" which was featured on Dimitri from Paris first volume of Night at the Playboy Mansion, and the track "Salvation" featured on a Costes compilation. Two albums, High Flying and The Lure of Melody with a remix by King Britt were released on the label Glasgow Underground.

His collaboration with the producer Patchworks gave birth to several releases such as the jazz project Metropolitan Jazz Affair, the first album of which was released on the label Maquis, and the second, Bird Of Spring on the German label Infracom. The reggae soul band The Dynamics, with whom he has been extensively touring over the past year, released it's first album Version Excursions with labels Big Single and Groove Attack.

Mr Day's latest project is the release of his first solo album, produced by Patchworks, and featuring the live band he tours with. The album will be coming out soon on French label Favorite Recordings, which has already released four singles, "Soul On Wax," "Get Your Point Over," "Tears Of Joy" and most recently "If I Can't Love You" remixed by DJ Vadim.

Mr Day has recently collaborated with Mr President and is featured on a track on Boozoo Bajou's latest album. An extensive record collector, occasional DJ and radio show host, the musical eclectism he lives by always leads him right back to the path of soul.
