It’s been unreasonably hot in LA lately. But today it got a little cooler because Tom Misch just released Beat Tape 2 off his label Beyond the Groove. The UK based 20-year-old multi-instrumentalist does not disappoint on the follow up to the acclaimed Beat Tape 1. There’s a little bit of something for everyone on this one. The production is cohesive and well balanced with lush guitar loops, hip hop beats, funked-out keys, and sultry vocals. The opening track “The Journey” has a chill vibe that is guaranteed to beat the heat if you leave it on repeat. Take a listen.
