The genius masterminds behind the new school wave of a soulful, electronic, and jazzy fusion have joined forces for a head inducing musical experience. Tom Misch, and Yussef Dayes two promising young stars already impressive on their own, prove that they’re even better together. Just two months before launching their collaborative joint project, What Kinda Music, the duo have released the explosive title track off of the album.
Blending the styles of Dayes’ signature innovative drums, and Misch’s oh so pleasant vocals, the two showcase the effort of respecting individuality, while simultaneously showcasing what they could do collaboratively. Expanding with creating something that is experimental yet accessible, Dayes & Misch mesh the unparalleled for something that ultimately works. But that’s the beauty of a collaboration, but not just your ordinary collaboration, but one that bends different styles and interests to rearrange the ordinary of what listeners expect. Picking up ideas from one another while generating an overall sense of comfort with their risks, What Kinda Music is just a glimpse of what to expect from the joint project thats guaranteed to shift gears of the concept of a collaboration into a whole new perspective.
What Kinda Music, the joint album by Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes will be released on Blue Note on April 24th. Stream the title track on CTRL’s curated CTRL Now playlist.
