In The Moment E&F Sides

Makaya McCraven


Released 12.15.2015

Format: Vinyl Digital


Makaya McCraven's In The Moment E & F Sides contain 40 minutes of additional music from the original In The Moment sessions. These 9 pieces of organic beat music were sampled concurrently, but not fully completed, with the 19 that comprised the January 2015 release. Slowly refined by McCraven and mastered in November 2015 by Daddy Kev (founder of Low End Theory, Alpha Pup Records), the In The Moment E & F Sides demonstrate McCraven's further actualization as a unique composer/producer in an epilogue that solidifies the eminence of the original sessions.

Available digitally and on vinyl in a stock sleeve, the E & F Sides LP stands alone OR slides nicely into the gatefold of the original In The Moment 2xLP set (for collectors looking to make an extemporaneous 3xLP set).

The announcement of this release punctuates a breakthrough year for McCraven and In The Moment, which began with "Record of the Week" accolades from BBC DJ Gilles Peterson, was highlighted by the release of the In The Moment Remix Tape at a historic co-headlining Chicago show with Kamasi Washington, and has culminated with “Best of 2015” honors from Pop Matters, the Los Angeles Times, KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez and Apple Music.
