Richard Spaven - championed by Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs, Gilles Peterson, Bonobo
A new discovery for me, Richard Spaven. Mixing in the circles I mix in, not sure how out paths haven’t crossed before. After a bit of digging, some low level background checks, I’m pleasantly surprised to see the support Spaven gets with his music. Bonobo playlists, Benji B BBC Radio 1 and 1xtra, Mary Anne Hobbs ‘Tune Of The Week’, collabs with Ninja Tune’s Jordan Rakei and Brainfeeder’s Jameszoo and featured on the GTA V soundtrack on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM channel.
His latest release showcases Jordan Rakei and his trademark falsetto vocals and John Metcalfe’s Zero 7 and Cinematic Orchestra style reinterpretation of Spaven’s Faded anthem
