Originally a jazz drummer affirms his love for club culture and smart electronics, blending jazz with drum’n’bass to broken beats to dubstep and more. All combined with Richard’s unique subtle style, which has made him a sought-after performer around the world, and great collaborations with other performers to ensure the album´s complexity and diversity. So that the album is not “Me, Me, Just Me”.
Richard Spaven has collaborated and performed with many excellent artists including Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra, Gregory Porter, Jameszoo, Goldie, Thundercat and many more. Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t mean to hurt your feelings, but who can say that?
Richard performs with guitarist Stuart McCallum who is best known for his collaboration with the nu-jazz Cinematic Orchestra, and bassist Robin Mullarkey who has performed with Natalie Williams, Roisin Murphy or John Newman. As our programme curator Adam says, they are also a pretty big deal!
The “1759 Outro” song from the 5ives EP was featured on Grand Theft Auto V.
