Richard Spaven – ‘Real Time’ album playback and Jazz re:freshed DJs
Being devotees of drummer-led productions, we're delighted to hold a special evening in the company of Richard Spaven (drummer for Flying Lotus, Jose James, Cinematic Orchestra...) to celebrate the release of 'Real Time', his new studio album.
First single 'Faded' featuring acclaimed vocalist Jordan Rakei, out 5th of October, was 'Sunriser' recently on 6 Music and has already received praise from across the board.
Richard's uniquely subtle take on drumming and "the way he plays like a wild flower grows" (Mary Anne Hobbs / 6 Music Recommends), has made him a sought-after performer with successful global artists and at drum events and festivals worldwide.
DJ support before and after the full album playback on the Spiritland sound system will come from Jazz re:freshed.
