Tom Misch hails from south London, home to a recent explosion in Neo Soul. The history of which is rich enough to warrant it's own post for another time. This weeks song, Nightrider, is from the new album "what kinda music" from Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes. “NIghtrider” embodies its name. A low-slung driving bass line bumps, creating a environment that many a hip hop legends would feel at home in.
This track just happen to be graced by, Gray legend Freddie Gibbs, Mr. Freedie Kane, himself. Who in his own words "Can blesses the track AND lets it breathe". Showing of the versatility of the universe Tom and Yussef craft. Where transitions occur so seamlessly between worlds that you couldn't even picture it any other way. Metaphorically and literally, this song doesn't even missing a beat. Now that's smooooth (with multiple o's). Check out their full album while it's hot off the press.

About the Curator - Rooknight
It started the fist time I was handed the aux driving around the Chicago suburbs. It evolved over my 3 years of being a radio Dj at Purdue. Now at 23 years old, I’m ready for the next step in my passion for sharing music. Being apart of the Musicto family.
As a musician myself, I’ve met insanely talented artists who just need a break. So, I've made it my mission. Listening to over 600 full albums in the last two years alone, and creating over 20 playlist on my Spotify. I've been searching. There is so much treasure out there, just waiting to be discovered. I’m just tryna make the map.
