Alfa Mist has become a favorite on the site since hearing his work with Emmavie early last year. A few other loose tracks, some stellar production work, and several remixes later we get Nocturne EP. Over the 11 tracks Alfa showcases his song-crafting ability along with his successful soul/jazz/classical sound. The young artist drafts in a variety of rappers, vocalists, and a poet to add voices to his compositions, and he skillfully brings them all together and make something coherent and focused. With collaborations from the likes of Rachel Ofori, Barney Artist, Tom Misch, Kaya Thomas, Emmavie and Carmody, who features on recent single “Dreams”. This track demonstrates everything to love about Nocturne – it’s dramatic and bold, yet still manages to be delicate and emotive. Tracks like “Blaze”, “No Peace”, “Hopeful” and “Sunrise (Pillow)” feel timeless while at the same time managing to surprise with stunning originality. If you’re a lover of good music, then grab Nocturne today.
