Alchemy is a new style of events that focus on bringing you the best in live music & beat production. In 2016 Alchemy brought down acclaimed Canadian band BADBADNOTGOOD & in 2017 Alchemy aim to take it a step further.
So it is with the utmost pleasure that we announce the act for the next event.
On April the 1st Alchemy will be hosting London born 21 year old singer-songwriter / producer / DJ Tom Misch
Tom’s introduction to music came early on when – from the age of four – he’d be taken along to classical concerts by his parents and began to learn the violin. At nine he moved onto guitar and by the age of eleven, he was working on his own compositions after acquiring a loop pedal.
After taking the musical ingredients of J Dilla style beats, John Mayer- esque guitar lines and neo-soul and putting them through his very own musical blender, the then 17-year- old started putting his homemade beats on his new Soundcloud account back in 2012.
In no time at all, his tracks were being sampled by budding rappers on YouTube, before influential Berlin beat maker Lamnobodi shared one of his tracks on Soundcloud, leading to the first spurt of widespread interest in his music.
After releasing around 18 individual tracks on his Soundcloud, Tom was inundated with people asking where they could buy a full release, so compiled the tracks into the much loved ‘Beat Tape 1’, and put it on Bandcamp through his own Beyond The Groove label.
The 21-year-old producer dropped ‘Beat Tape 2’ in August 2015, a collection of songs and beat sketches he put together in the first half of that year, and he now has major tastemakers like Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Beats 1’s Julie Adenuga queuing up to proclaim him as one of the most exciting new emerging musical talents.
So dont miss out on what will surely be a live music spectacular.
Supporting acts & DJ’s will be announced shortly.
