Universal Playground’s album of the week 17 – 2020 is Tom Misch & Yusef Dayes – What Kinda Music

South London multi-instrumentalist Tom Misch fuses low-slung hip-hop beats, glittering disco, and noodling jazz instrumentation. A frequent collaborator, his DIY approach has built a fanbase of 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

The UK’s most innovative young Drummer and producer, Yussef Dayes, has gained notoriety on the international stage as a pioneer of his field. Though largely considered a “jazz” drummer, Dayes pushes beyond genre restrictions melding together everything from 70s funk to Senegalese percussion to UK grime.
