Korn Singer Jonathan Davis To Become ‘J Devil’ For 2012 Solo EP

Korn, Facebook

Korn frontman Jonathan Davis is currently working on his solo debut, which will be a foray into electronic music and be released under the name of his DJ alter ego “J Devil.”

Korn injected their nu-metal sound with dubstep on their 2011 album ‘The Path of Totality,’ now singer Jonathan Davis will take one step further into the world of Electronic Dance Music. “I’ve been working on my EP. I got a studio on the [Korn tour] bus. I write every night,” Davis tells Rolling Stone of the solo album he will release as J Devil later this year.

“I love DJing, and I love rocking out. It’s fun going from DJing electro and heavy dubstep to Korn. It’s therapy for me,” Davis says of his transition to and from J Devil. The Korn vocalist revealed he also learned a thing or two from his band’s recent collaboration with Skrillex. “I love what he does, [but] I think the only influence I took was mashing up different kinds of genres of music,” he explains. “It doesn’t really sound anything like him. I’ve had a chance to work with all the best guys in the business and it taught me a lot. I like to come up with my own style, so I’m getting respect from lots of people.”

Davis further explains that the EP isn’t limited to just one specific genre of EDM, “It’s all these different genres,” he says. “I love electro, I love jungle, I love drum and bass, I love dubstep, so it’s a mixup of all that stuff.”
