Tickets available at the venue box office. A major voice on London's new jazz scene. Signed to Gilles Peterson's Brownwood Label, the drummer's killer fractured and broken beats are a huge influence across London's shapeshifting musical make-up - taking in jungle, grime, hop-hop and broken beat and the bass-heavy ambience of black pirate radio. His band, with Mansur Brown, Tom Driessler and Charlie Stacey, take inspiration from the crossover and experimentation in Jazz in the 1970s. Think: Herbie, Miles, Mahavishnu, Cobham, Alice Coltrane. “One of the most engaging acts you’ll see live” (Bonobo). Limited seating available.
