Makaya McCraven - Where We Come From (Chicago x London Mixtape)

Over the course of three days in London, drummer/producer Makaya McCraven
connected first-time time collaborators (Theon Cross, Nubya Garcia, Joe
Armon-Jones, Soweto Kinch, Ashley Henry, Daniel Casimir and Kamaal
Williams) and did two improvised performances as part of a 2-night showcase
called CHICAGO x LONDON at legendary UK Jazz hub Total Refreshment
Centre (TRC).

The following Sunday afternoon five producers (LeFtO, Ben LaMar Gay, Quiet
Dawn, Earl Jeffers & Don Leisure of the Darkhouse Family) were invited
to TRC to participate in an event called Fresh Roasted: Live Beat-Making
& Battle, where they did live remixes of the recordings from Makaya & co's
CHICAGO x LONDON performances.
 
Remixes by Emma-Jean Thackray and Lexus Blondin were added to the pool,
at which point Makaya took all the remixes and the raw live recordings from TRC
back to his home studio in Chicago, chopped everything up and re-composed
the music into two continuous side suites for this CHICAGO x LONDON Mixtape.
