Tom Misch (DJ Set)
The 21-year-old producer dropped ‘Beat Tape 2’ in August 2015, a collection of songs and beat sketches he put together in the first half of that year, and he now has major tastemakers like Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Beats 1’s Julie Adenuga queuing up to proclaim him as one of the most exciting new emerging musical talents.
While his current career trajectory, (which also includes a flurry of Hype Machine top five entries), might suggest someone with a book-full of career goals that he’s meticulously ticking off one by one, in reality – much like the music he makes – the South Londoner is calm, unhurried and softly-spoken, driven more by the desire to constantly make and share his music rather than any of the trappings of success.
Tom finds himself at the centre of a cluster of new London artists who share his sensitive, soulful, deeply melodic and emotive approach to music. With plans afoot to put a full live band together and the first tentative footsteps being taken towards recording a debut album proper, expect to be hearing loads more of Tom from now on.
