Makaya McCraven - In These Times (IEX, Ivory) LP




"As a drummer, producer, bandleader and composer — 'beat scientist' is the official nom de groove — McCraven forged his style out of whirring parts and deft designs. Working with unstructured group improv and loop-savvy digital postproduction, he brings an organic touch to the recursive rhythms of hip-hop, in a way that fosters interplay. 

Melody has always been a secret weapon in McCraven's music, which often weaves a few different hooks into a chain.

However fascinating McCraven's working methods may be, what matters is the spell he creates with the groove, which doesn't ask how we got here but points in the direction we're headed, one step at a time."
