London singer-songwriter Tom Misch and jazz drummer Yussef Dayes are teaming up for a collaborative album called What Kinda Music, out next week via Beyond The Groove/Blue Note. Early instrumental tracks already “Lift Off” and “Kyiv” already showcased their intoxicating blend of jazz, funk, and hip-hop idioms. And now they’re upping the rap quotient with the addition of hard-nosed Indiana MC Freddie Gibbs on new single “Nightrider,” a smooth, hypnotic groove that also features effortlessly chill vocals from Misch. Listen and watch the song’s accompanying animated video, directed by Jack Brown and co-designed by James Neilson, below.
What Kinda Music is out 4/24 via Beyond The Groove/Blue Note. Pre-order it here.
