Houston-bred drummer, Chris Dave
released a free mixtape from his new Drumhedz outfit,
& brought along with them a star-studded cast of
just about every reputable musician in jazz & hip-hop right now.
Included in the fold are Robert Glasper, Thundercat, Pino Palladino,
James Poyser, Yasiin Bey, Sy Smith, Stokely Williams of Mint Condition,
Derrick Hodge, Saunders Sermons, Stutz McGee of HEAVy, & hordes more.
But even with the rotating bandstand’s guest list being as heavy as that,
its still Chris Dave’s own unique drumming styles
& his burgeoning production chops to shine through the brightest.
