About this item
Alfa Mist is one of the driving forces behind a young and vibrant scene of UK musicians, who've taken on jazz as their musical narrative.
The producer, self-taught pianist and rapper takes us on a sonic trip back to his beat-making past on the streets of East London, through the depth and musicality he discovered composing and playing jazz. 2017 saw the release of Alfa's breakthrough record, Antiphon and the 2019's album Structuralism were both self-released on his Sekito label.
His latest endeavour, 2021's Bring Backs, sees Alfa taking on new challenges.The record marks his first release for the label Anti and is also the most detailed exploration of his upbringing in musical form.
Barry says: though Antifon and Structuralism were undoubtedly skilled constructions and helped to bring Alfa Mist's music to the masses, 'Bring Backs' is by far the most cohesive and competent outing yet. Encompassing elements of jazz and soul as well as a beautiful thread of downbeat lounge and smooth hip-hop this is indeed a journey to be relished. Gorgeous stuff.
