For someone considered to be one of the UK’s most exciting new producers, Tom Misch is remarkably relaxed.
The 21-year-old has just played his third ever live show when he meets Mixmag in East London on a rainy Tuesday, but seems completely at ease with his new role as frontman.
“I’m not a massive talker,” explains Tom when asked about the increased scrutiny. “But I’m there to play music, not do stand-up. People know that.”
While Tom is currently pushing the live side of his music, he initially gained attention for ‘Beat Tape 1’, a collection of Dilla-esque sketches he put online which notched up hundreds of thousands of plays. Last summer he released ‘Beat Tape 2’, a more collab-heavy offering of neo-soul and boom bap hip hop-influenced tracks, featuring the likes of Loyle Carner and Carmody that took his Soundcloud plays into the millions.
