A short while ago, I posted about a relatively new UK beatmaker and producer called Alfa Mist. Alfa Mist makes brilliant, multilayered hip hop and instrumentals – often featuring some of the best of the UK’s vocal and MC talent (previous album’s featured Tom Misch and Lester Duval). His latest album release is ‘Antiphon’; a beautiful album of creatively executed hip hop beats with a real jazz and soul sensibility.

‘Antiphon’ has been based around a conversation Alfa Mist had with his brothers – and although undeniably influenced throughout by hip hop, the melancholy notes that come through on each track make it a more complex and moving beast than your usual head-nod hip hop LP. My personal favourite tracks are ‘Breathe’ featuring the eerie vocals from Kaya Thomas-Dyke and ‘Errors’ a track that epitomises Alfa’s mastery of chilled out jazz and is soul soothing and sonically vibrant in equal measure.
