Richard Spaven

Richard Spaven has supplied the drums for many artists on stage and in the studio: José James, Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra, Guru’s Jazzmatazz, Gregory Porter to name but a few. His recent album, ’The Self’ explores and defies genres, from Drum & Bass to Broken Beat to Dubstep and more, seen through the lens of a drummer.

Kaya Thomas Dyke

Kaya Thomas-Dyke's innate musical flare has been noticed by many. She debuted her beautifully melancholy vocals on Alfa Mist's 2015 LP Nocturne, on the tracks 'Blaze' and 'Answers'. Since then, she and Mist have continued their reliable collaborations, with Kaya lending vocals to 'Breathe' on his acclaimed 2017 release Antiphon and 2nd Exit's self-titled debut EP. Most recently Kaya featured on the title track of Jordan Rakei's latest album, Wallflower. In between touring the world as Alfa Mist's bassist, Kaya has been focusing on writing and recording her solo project, which is eagerly anticipated by those lucky enough to have had the pleasure of seeing her live. As a talented pianist and guitarist, this debut project is set to solidify her reputation as an extremely credible artist with global potential.
