Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes‘ new full-length album What Kinda Music is slated to release April 24 via via Beyond The Groove/Blue Note. The duo flexed their undeniable chemistry on the two previously released instrumental tracks, “Kyiv” and “Lift Off”, each beautifully one-shot takes of a jam session in a Ukrainian concert hall.
Now they’ve tapped Freddie Gibbs for “Nightrider,” a seriously smooth sonic offering that sees Misch and Dayes lay a groovy instrumental foundation to let the veteran emcee just go off. In an alternate universe, it’s something that KITT would intrinsically know to play through the speakers while you cruise in your Pontiac Trans Am for a late night drive.
Be sure to catch-up on HYPEBEAST’s interview with Tom Misch from last summer, too where the artist talks about J Dilla and not wanting to be famous while on a trip to Seoul, South Korea. In the meantime, Misch has been covering some of his favorite records via his ongoing Quarantine Sessions with his latest being a fusing of Luther Vandross’ “Never Too Much” and Mac Miller’s “What’s the Use?”. Previously, he covered Thundercat’s “Them Changes” and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” which you can watch below.
Listen to Tom and Yussef’s latest “Nightrider” track and stay tuned for their collaborative LP to drop April 24.
