TMCT (TomCat) is a Leeds-based producer who has been putting out some exceptional music of late, taking from Jazz and classic Boom Bap in equal measure. His latest project, ‘Snow Beach’ is an incredible demonstration of how to do exactly that. In TMCT himself modrestly puts it, it is “a collection of beats using samples from a period in music that inspires me most”. Hip Hop has borrowed from Jazz extensively over the years, but TMCT does something a little different: his is very much an unadulterated Jazz sound, which is occasionally set to big, uncompromising Hip Hop beats.
