Being deemed a true innovator McCraven brilliantly moves between genres and pushes the boundaries of jazz, electronica, composition and rhythm to create forms of his own.

The multi-talented Makaya can be admired in our Grote Zaal on Thursday 16 November. Prepare for a performance where McCraven brilliantly moves between genres and boundaries of jazz and rhythm to create his own form.

His breakthrough album In the Moment was released with International Anthem Recording in January of 2015 and quickly seen as a dramatic statement by McCraven, where he debuted a unique brand of “organic beat music” that quickly launched him into the vanguard of not only Internationally-known jazz artists, but also a niche genre of next-wave composer-producers blurring the boundaries of jazz & electronic music. Following his impressive debut McCraven followed a string on incredible releases including 2018’s widely-popular Universal Beings (International Anthem) and We’re New Again, his rework of Gil Scott-Heron’s final album for XL Recordings. McCraven lastly released Deciphering the Message – a collection of 13 pieces from Blue Note Records extensive catalogue, rearranged and remixed with the new sound. The album was released in October 2021 on Blue Note Records.

In These Times is the new and seventh (!) album (released September 23, 2022) via the three-label collaboration of International Anthem, Nonesuch & XL Recordings. In These Times features several notable guest performances, including guitarist Jeff Parker, harpist Brandee Younger, and Ohmme’s Macie Stewart. Junius Paul, Marta Sofia Honer, and Lia Kohl are also among those joining the Chicago-based percussionist.

The jazz drummer and producer’s hypnotic double album is culled from a year’s worth of gig tapes that he’s layered and spliced together into something wholly new and radically communal.
