His father, American jazz drummer Steve McCraven, learned the trade with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. His mother, Ágnes Zsigmondi, mixes Hungarian folk with jazz. From the former, drummer and self-declared beat scientist Makaya McCraven inherited his merciless and hypnotic rhythms, from the latter, his wide-eyed view of the world and his thirst to experiment with other genres. Inspired by Madlib and Flying Lotus, among others, McCraven has in recent years bridged the gap between jazz and hip-hop, Chicago and London, and avant-garde and – as he himself calls them – organic beats.
