Richard Spaven introduces us to his personal musical journey. The moment in time where a jazz drummer affirms his love for club culture, delivering an album that explores and defies genres, from Drum ’n’ Bass to Broken Beat to Dubstep and more, seen through the lens of a drummer. All combined with Richard's unique subtle style, which has made him a sought-after performer with many great artists as well as at drum shows and festivals around the world.

Richard's first single ‘The Self’ features Jordan Rakei and explores the 140bpm world of dubstep. Second single ‘Law’ is an ode to Spaven's passion for Drum 'n' Bass. Awash with Stuart McCallum's melancholic chords, the tight shifting rhythms showcase Spaven's trademark drumming style — precision, creativity and finesse. The singles have received BBC airplay from Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs, Gilles Peterson and Jamie Cullum.

Richard Spaven has gained international recognition and praise for supplying the drums for many artists on stage and in the studio. José James, Guru's Jazzmatazz, Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra, TY and more recently Jameszoo. Working closely with a diverse range of artists has made him a genre-defying drummer.

***********************************

Skeltr's sumptuous, technically prolific saxophone solos are combined with mysterious samples, synths and loopers for a heart-wrenching and thoughtful cascade of modern and technical soulful funk. Having recently warmed up for KNOWER on their recent UK tour and played alongside Dinosaur at the famous ‘Oslo Jazzscene’ in Norway — Skeltr are making big waves in their first year. Having had their debut album recently played on Jazz FM and earmarked by Giles Peterson as one to watch, Skeltr’s winding musical journey is one not to be missed.

‘After a matter of seconds of the opening number, it was clear this was going to be one of those extra special gigs.’ — Paul Bream, Jazz North East

‘An electrifying new duo in which Sam Healey’s roaring sax lines soar above Craig Hanson’s drum patterns, electronic soundscapes and samples, manipulated live in the moment: a striking, expansive sound with a buzzing energy at its core.’ — Steve Mead, Manchester Jazz Festival
