Following his sold-out show in November 2017 when we took him across the NQ to Soup Kitchen, Alfa Mist returns to Manchester.
Growing up in Newham, East London, Alfa Mist began his musical journey as a grime and hip-hop producer. The self-taught pianist and occasional rapper soon found himself drawn to the jazz, world music and film soundtracks he discovered through sampling. His sound blends melancholy jazz harmony with alternative hip-hop and soul.
His recently released second album ‘Antiphon’ has pushed him forward in the new jazz scene as one to watch following the warm reception of his first record ‘Nocturne’ which featured the likes of Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei.
“Soundtrack-worthy, creating a soulful vibe packed with heady emotion.” – NME
“The fractured grime influences allow the crystal rays of the morning to seep through the tracks.” – Clash Music
