Beathearts ode to drummer extraordinaire: Chris Dave

In the aftershocks of the Black Radio release we felt we needed to put the spotlights on one of the greatest percussionist we've ever come across: Mr Chris Dave. We first heard about his magic touch when the secret Dilllude sessions started to leak from shows from around the world.

Robert Glasper & Chris Dave - Unreleased Dillaludes

On the production side Chris teamed up with New York DJ/MC Stimulus late 2011. The beats and production are of the hook and the featurings are top notch. Among others Bilal, Renee Neufville (Zhané), Stokley (Mind Condition), Casey Benjamin (Robert Glasper Experiment). Just check their dope rework of the Maxwell track Bad Habitz. Get it below.

If you want to know more check our interview with Chris and Robert Glasper from last summer: The Beathearts Robert Glasper Experiment sit-down.

Featured below are some of our favourite live video sessions with the man. As a solo artist, with the Robert Glasper Experiment and most recent his amazing solo show during the interlude of Sh*t, Damn, Motherf***er taken from the recent D'Angelo European tour. Chris Dave - we salute you!
