“Jazz is the mother of hip hop” - Robert Glasper

Throughout its long and ongoing development, hip hop’s great producers have looked backwards to jazz for inspiration. The defining musical genres of their time, they have an undeniable and dynamic connection. In a new show for Oxide, ‘From Davis to Dilla’ attempts to track this relationship through the most obvious element of this connection: the sample. From Coltrane to Q-Tip, Nina Simone to Kanye West, tune in for an exploration of a musical relationship that continues to push the boundaries of music forward.
