Alfa Mist - Variables
On Variables, his second release for ANTI-, Alfa achieves his most fully realised,
expressive musical work to date, coupling his keen ear for looping, memorably
emotive piano melodies with intuitive grooves and a free-flowing jazz improvisation.
Since the release of his first full-length project Nocturne in 2015, Alfa has established
himself as one of the UK’s most focused, in demand and distinct musical voices. He
has worked with the likes of Jordan Rakei and Tom Misch. Artists look to him for his
unique blend of intimate bedroom production and expansive jazz group orchestration,
since Alfa is yet to be boxed into a specific genre. His music spans everything from hip-
hop beat-making to producing for artists such as rapper Loyle Carner, composing neo-
classical works for the London Contemporary Orchestra, and reworking tracks from
composer Ólafur Arnald’s and pioneering jazz label Blue Note.
The return to live shows has been a welcome one for Alfa and his fans, resulting in an
extensive tour throughout UK and Europe. Including a sold-out headline show at the
Barbican in London. Alfa Mist will be touring Europe, UK and North America in 2023
again. It is a balance between feeling and perfectionism that ultimately gives Alfa’s
music its depth and capacity for repeated listening. It is also an ethos that has enabled
his remarkable work-ethic to date. ‘I’ve never been a ‘one album every four years’
artist ‘ I want to put out new projects every year,’ he says. ‘Music is an extension of
my life; it is the practice of creating.
