Alfa Mist isn’t one to blow his own trumpet. Despite myriad skills as a blossoming musician, he describes himself on his Bandcamp page as simply a ‘producer/composer’.
With a number of releases to his name, including short EPs Nocturne and the neo-soul driven Epoch with vocalist Emmavie, Alfa’s taste has recently taken a turn more towards the jazzier side of things with his recently released EP, the excellent Antiphon.
One of the members of Are We Live, a creative quartet that also includes Tom Misch, Jordan Rakei and Barney Artist, he recently blew the roof off at Mau Mau Bar for his Antiphon release show for Jazz re:freshed.
A mellow, luxurious and self-described ‘unapologetic’ listen, Antiphon takes melancholic jazz harmonies and blends then with alt hip-hop and soul stylings, to beautiful results.
