Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes - What Kinda Music (Limited Edition Vinyl)
Limited Deluxe Edition 180g vinyl 2LP on Blue Note. Comes in a gatefold sleeve with music book, recycled plastic dust jacket and recycled plectrum. Contains three bonus audio tracks: Saddle, Tidal Wave Outro and Seagulls.
'What Kinda Music'– a masterful collaboration between two artists of very different disciplines, and one of the most unique and seamlessly original projects of its ilk to date.
Moving fluidly through sleek electronica, progressive jazz, vintage hip-hop and so much more, Misch and Dayes take their listener on a ride that is by turns surprising and spontaneous, heady and head-spinning, and nothing less than compelling – a singular vision that fuses the DNA of both musicians with spectacular results, as can be seen in the title track “What Kinda Music,” which comes alongside the video directed by Douglas Bernardt that was premiered today on The FADER.
Even though the fundamental bones of the album came together very quickly, its actual provenance stretches much further back with the pair not only growing up in the same area of South East London, but Misch actually seeing Dayes play on drums in the school talent show for the first time when he was 9. It was only when they went into a studio in the summer of 2018 however, following a chance meeting at a party for Misch’s Geography LP, that the proverbial creative sparks began to fly.
