Tom Misch - I Wish
Following his debut performance at Glastonbury, 21-year old South East Londoner Tom Misch drops "I Wish" taken from his new EP “Reverie” due for release 15th July through his own label Beyond The Groove.
Also still doing its thing online, EP track “Crazy Dream” which sees Tom collaborate once again with fellow South Londoner Loyle Carner. “Crazy Dream” is a warm bath of studiously relaxed hip-hop and soul – J Dilla style beats, John Mayer- esque guitar lines and Carner’s effortless, unhurried groove come together perfectly. “Crazy Dream” reached #1 on the Hype Machine twice and has already been streamed over 300k times.
Tom’s new EP is an intrepid and invigorating adventure in sound, bursting with inventiveness. “Reverie” is the most definitive moment of his career to date, foreign and colorful arrangements will entice even the most casual listener. “The reverie EP is a result of me wanting to take slightly more of a role as a songwriter and singer. It's the first release I sing on every track and hopefully indicates the direction I want to go for my debut album,” says Tom about his new EP.
Tom’s success thus far can be partly attributed to the dedicated fan-base he has built single-handedly, evidenced by his 200+k online followers and the frequency with which he reaches the Hype Machine top position. Tom’s previous releases Beat Tape 1 & 2 which he made while still in school are a combination of beats and more fully fledged songs which find the sweet spot between electronica, hip-hop and acoustic. Beat Tape 2 has had over 150 plays on Beats1 and over 10million plays on Spotify continues to find new fans across world and is now available on vinyl.
Tom’s music has found him an eclectic array of supporters – from one of YouTube’s biggest dance music channels, Majestic Casual, to the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Clara Amfo and Jaden Smith. Plus there’s the fact that Tom has earned the reputation as one of the best UK producers following remixes and reworks for the likes of Lianne La Havas, Mos Def and Busta Rhymes.
Following the sell-out success of his first headline live show in May of this year, Tom announces his summer festival dates along with his debut UK and European headline tour this November. Tom's London show at Village Underground sold out in less than 24 hours.
