Discovery: Laura Misch

British musician Laura Misch brings something a little different to these pages, with her own brand of ambient jazz music.

Hide To Seek is certainly an atmospheric piece of work – whilst it’s jazzy, it also contains elements from a slew of other genres, making it hard to characterise. It opens with a unique beat, as some subtle brass instrumentation plays, emerging during different parts of the song. However, a selection of electronic drums and synths soon arrive, marking a gradual shift in the tone of the music. There are some vocals, but the real focal point is the amazing instrumentation Laura uses here, truly making the track her own.
