‘South Of The River’ epitomises Tom Misch’s progression as both a producer and a vocalist. The instrumentation feels tight and natural whilst maintaining the flow of a great disco track. His vocals and lyrical capabilities are constantly improving without losing his signature beautiful South-East London accent.
