"I'm excited to be back with a new deep house label called Mind Loop Music! Launched in Spring of 2020 along with my long time music sidekick Smitty. Read about how it all began for me"...

Eric Davenport has shaken bootys in over 70 cities worldwide with his unique sound of spacey West Coast U.S. house mixed with a solid foundation of Chicago and Detroit flava. Having now been a dj & producer since 1992, he is considered one of the true pioneers of the underground dance circuit. It all started back in 1987 while living in Japan. Eric was turned on to tapes from Chicago of the now legendary radio station 102.7 BMX "Jackin' Up The House". After hearing Ralphi Rosario and Mickey Oliver do their thing on the Hot Mix shows, it was all over. His future career in dance music was inspired. Eric moved to Los Angeles in 1988 to attend UCLA and quickly became sucked into the fresh new underground scene of weekly warehouse parties, listening and learning from DJ's like Doc Martin, Barry Weaver and Marques Wyatt. After finishing school, Eric started Djing at parties himself in 92' and by 95' was traveling North America playing on a weekly basis. As a producer, Eric has been a powerful influence on the dance scene since the mid 90's. First as one of the leaders of the West Coast sound under the monikers Liquitek & Metro LA, which in 1995 had one of the top 100 tracks in the world with "To A Nation Rockin". In 1999 Eric hooked up with his current partner, sound designer Chris Smith to form the duo Smitty & Davenport. They have since reeled off some 100 projects, with original works & remixes on respected labels like Inspirit Music UK, Doubledown, Dusttraxx, Jamayka, Hooj Choons, and etc...... Their versatile style has landed them remix projects for everyone from Roy Davis Jr. & East Coast Boogiemen to Dj Dan. Smitty & Davenport's extensive work in the underground has received praise and respect from Mark Farina, Dj Heather, and Ben Watt of Lazy Dog just to name a few. They even branched out to do more commercial projects as well, landing them in Billboard Magazine with a top twenty remix of Gus Gus's "Desire" and EMI/Vanguard's first top ten dance record with their remix of Julia Fordam's "Wake up with you".
To further contribute to the dance scene, Eric and Chris started Geisha House Music back in 2003. This independent dance label was dedicated to funky-jazzy house and featured Roy Davis Jr., Q-burns & Monkey Bars for it's first few projects. Full circle, they are back with another label called Mind Loop Music, now in the new world of the digital landscape. House Music All Night Long!
