Ever since leaving school in 2001 and moving to University in London I’ve had a real passion for Hip Hop music. I’m not entirely sure where it came from, but it’s kinda strange when you consider I grew up in a boarding school in the West Country (an area better known for its Cider than rapping community). Anyway, while searching the darkest online caverns of Soundcloud, a social media platform for musicians, I came across a young musician from London called Tom Misch. His music was beautiful, so soulful and powerful, and harked back to a time in Hip Hop that I was lucky-enough to catch the tail-end of. To say I was blown away, when I found Tom was just 18, would be an understatement!
After falling in love with Tom’s music I couldn’t resist emailing him and asking him if he’d mind me making a short film about him and his musical influences……and how he’d arrived at this sound. Being the nice guy that he is Tom obliged, and here’s the result! I wish Tom the best of luck with his future endeavours (his own label ‘Beyond the Groove’ and his guitar degree in Greenwich) and hope he keeps producing music for many years to come!
