What Kinda Music is the first collaborative album between British musician Yussef Dayes and South London producer and singer Tom Misch. It is out on April 24th via Blue Note Records. According to the press release, What made the pair click, according to Misch and Dayes, were the exact same factors that meant it shouldn’t, by all rights, work. Misch says, “Yussef comes from a more experimental background, and he has a lot of loose, crazy ideas. I know how to write a catchy melody, but with interesting chords and I have a good understanding of popular song forms, so I think I streamlined those ideas and made them accessible”.
“What Kinda Music” is the first excerpt. Watch the official video directed by Douglas Bernardt and shot on 16mm film in Kyev.
