In Hour 2 it's Karriem Riggins, a multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer who has worked with Kanye West, Kaytranada, Common, Erykah Badu, Slum Village, Talib Kweli and The Roots. He is the son of jazz composer and keyboardist Emmanuel Riggins (who played alongside jazz guitarist Grant Green) and got hooked on the drums watching his father’s jam sessions in their garage. Raiding his parents’ record collection was like a portal to crate digging, a prelude to his becoming a brilliant musician and budding beat conductor. His mix showcases those skills perfectly with a heap of exclusive beats alongside tracks from Thad Jones, EddieHazel, Little Beaver, Common and J Dilla. His second solo album 'Headnod Suite' was recently released on Stones Throw and he had this to say about his mix;
‘I often make mixes for myself to spark inspiration. I decided to let this one out to the world with hopes it will inspire someone.’
