The Lab LDN is Mixmag's weekly live stream, powered by Void Acoustics, where we showcase the finest DJs direct from our world famous office party.
This Friday we’ve got Tom Misch stepping up in The Lab LDN to spin a soulful set of jazz-infused hip hop and electronica.
The young London-born artist is a classically trained composer, attending concerts with his parents from the age of 4, and the influence of this musical rooting shows through the skill in which he crafts his productions that swing with airy majesty. Erykah Badu and J Dilla are also prominent inspirations to his work, with Tom paying direct tribute to the latter on enchanting tribute track ‘Dilla Love’ which drew support from Jay Dee’s mother on Twitter.
Earlier this summer Tom put out the ‘Reverie’ EP, a silky smooth four-tracker that utilises his own vocals and features collaborations with Loyle Carner and his sister Laura Misch, who contributed a bluesy sax melody to ‘Follow’. Later this year he's heading out on a European and sell-out US tour with a band, while work on his debut album with the group is underway and looking set to be released in 2017. We can’t wait to hear what Tom comes up with, and what he brings to The Lab on Friday.
