Robert Glasper Experiment
1A Camden High Street
Following last year’s acoustic trio gigs, Robert Glasper revisits his electric side with a new version of the Experiment, including added DJ.
New album ArtScience finds the Grammy-winning Robert Glasper Experiment getting down to its essence and continuing to stake out new musical territory, drawing on jazz, hip hop, R&B and rock, and refusing to be defined by any one genre.
'It's a short list of jazz pianists who have the wherewithal to drop a J Dilla reference into a Thelonious Monk cover but not many jazz pianists are Robert Glasper' (Los Angeles Times)
'Robert Glasper Experiment’s late-night set was fired up by double-clack beats and woofy bass, tricky hi-hat figures and swirling textures' (Financial Times)
'ArtScience is Robert Glasper Experiment’s most realized effort. They’ve created their own vibe' (Pitchfork)

'Robert Glasper hardly needs an introduction. Doing gigs now after a prolific release schedule this year of both the Robert Glasper Experiment and his Miles Davis projects.'
