Alfa Mist

London-based producer, pianist, bandleader and rapper Alfa Mist returns to Rotterdam! The multi-instrumentalist will bring his unique blend of jazz, hip-hop and soul to the Maassilo on Sunday 20 November 2022.

Whether he covers Sampha’s ‘Plastic 100°C’, lets your feelings bounce to his tune ‘Keep On’ or jams with Jordan Rakei in the Brownswood Basement: Alfa Mist drops his signature jazz-hip-hop groove everywhere. After discovering jazz through samples in hip-hop, Alfa Mist started his musical journey as a grime and hip-hop producer. This self-taught pianist and part-time rapper is now deeply rooted in the jazz scene and enjoys the support of Gilles Peterson, Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei, among others.

Alfa Mist mixes melancholic jazz harmony with alternative hip hop and soul. His debut album Nocturne was acclaimed by fans and critics, as was the follow-up album Antiphon, which was released in early 2017. In 2021 Alfa Mist dropped the concept album Bring Backs, in which the songs are connected by a poem by Hilary Thomas, which deals with the reality of building community in a new country. Feeling over perfectionism. This is the credo that drives the restless creativity of multi-instrumentalist, rapper and producer Alfa Mist.
