Beat Tape 2

It's been teased for a while, then it got delayed and a few weeks ago the first single dropped from Tom Misch's Beat Tape 2.

Beat Tape 1 was what it said on the tin, but Beat Tape 2 stretches the concept further and also shows the development Tom Misch has gone through over the last year. The new album includes a lot more tracks with vocals, featuring collabs with Carmody, Jordan Rakei, Sam Wills, Loyle Carner, Alfa Mist, Zak Abel and more. For the Tom Misch 'instrumental purist', there are tracks without vocals too, like "Falafel" and "Come Back". Tom Misch has also taken on a slightly more clubby approach with the track "Your Love" and has also included the clubby/charleston style collab he did with Bearcubs, which was originally released a year ago.

Beat Tape 2 is a stroke of genius and when listening to the entire album, you genuinely get the feeling that this is a guy who enjoys what he's doing and this is reflected in the music and this radiates onto the listener.

While Beat Tape 2 does indeed drop today, there will be an 'extended' album available via Bandcamp in a months time and a limited number of vinyls available later as well.

Below you can stream "Your Love" feat. Alexa Harley and "Beautiful Escapes" feat. Zak Abel and below that you can stream the entire Beat Tape 2. Enjoy :D

That Way

Today's first track is called "Die Young" by GRMM feat. Wild Eyed Boy. This track is from the upcoming EP by GRMM called "Die Young" set to release September 25th. I really hope nobody involved in making this track will die young, when making music sounding as good as this. The "oooh aaahh" makes the surprisingly catchy and you quickly start humming along autonomously. Give it a listen yourself and make sure to secure a pre-order of the EP via the link below:

Good News

Originally from the U.K. now based in Canada, Rosie June has released this indie pop/electronica track called "Good News". It's a bit different from what you'll usually find here on the blog, but her crisp and slightly fragile vocal has a very calming effect. The vibe is very radio friendly as well and "Good News" makes for a great easy listening piece. This single is part of an upcoming EP called "Post Listening", which is set to release on September 25th. Until then you can stream "Good News" all you want right here below:

Up next is a track by Amsterdam based producer Kynarian called "For The Sun". This track has a lush atmospheric vibe and you can literally hear the sea and the waves breaking toward the coast in the intro. The vibe is very relaxing and calming, although as the beat and bassline kicks in the track shifts towards a more melodic deep house vibe. This is a piece of feel good music, so take some time out of your busy day, kick back, and listen to this! You can even pick up a free download of the track via the Soundcloud box below. Enjoy :)
