There’s no denying that there is something distinctively London about the multi-faceted, Alfa Mist. Born and raised in East London, this artist, producer and label founder, has encountered an interesting introduction to music. A musical pallet refined by his explorations in Grime, Neo-Soul and Jazz, serving as the basis for his meditative sound.

The perplexing depth of Alfa’s music pays homage to his unceasing work ethic and ability to feel. His origins of sampling started in the shadows of Black Star, Madlib & J Dilla. Nowadays he’s traversing luscious, big-band work ethic swing and head-nodding boom-bap rhythms. His career has been fruitful, instantly selling out his debut US shows and collaborating with artists such as Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei. Alongside these, Alfa Mist, headlined London’s, Barbican in 2021.

Following Alfa Mist’s acclaimed first record in 2015, Nocturne, a string of successes have followed. He returns with the highly anticipated release of his sixth album, Variables, set to come out on the 21st of April. Alfa explains the album as “more uptempo and influenced by the freedom of returning to gigs”. Four singles have already been released, BC, 4th of Feb (Stay Awake), Aged Eyes and Apho.

The intense energy of Alfa’s five-piece band allows space for the crowd to hang on to the end of every note. Reflective and deeply poetic lyrics amongst sultry lights and smooth chord progressions. All of which can be expected when Alfa Mist returns to Australia to play at the Sydney Opera House, with local legends, Ella Haber & Swooping. Followed by headline shows in Adelaide and Melbourne.
