Prioritising feeling over perfectionism. This is the credo that drives the restless creativity of multi-instrumentalist,rapper and producer Alfa Mist.
First teaching himself to produce beats as a school kid in East Ham, London, Alfa then went on to discover jazz through the sampling of hip-hop of producers like Hi-tek, Madlib and J Dilla. Delving deeper, he taught himself the piano by ear as a means to dissect these formative records’ harmonic intricacies, gradually forming his own production style of head-nodding rhythms combined with the immediacy of jazz improvisation, all tied together with a pervasive sense of melody.
