The British pianist, composer and producer Alfa Mist knows how to imbue each of his works with a very urban melancholy, rocked in the cadence of soul, jazz and instrumental hip hop: it is not for nothing that he was a rap and grime producer when he started in the world of music.
The latest of them, "Bring Backs" (2021), stands out among the best of that generation of new British jazz (Nubya García, Ezra Collective) that is astonishing half the world.
Neither jazz nor urban genres hold any secrets for him. A pianist and admirer of the work of Miles Davis and Hans Zimmer, but also of J Dilla and MadLib, whom he began sampling in his early days, Alfa Mist has three albums to date.
Class, elegance and social awareness for what should be the (black) music of the future.
