ALFA MIST - STRUCTURALISM VINYL RE-ISSUE (2LP GATEFOLD)

The second album from one of the most sought-after UK jazz musicians, who's 2017 debut album Antiphon snowballed into a must-have vinyl hit. East London's Alfa Mist fuses influences of hip-hop, soul, funk and contemporary classical into his jazz pieces with such ease, and Structuralism is the next step in his incredible rise.

"Named after the theoretical breakdown of the basic elements of conscious experience, Alfa Mist’s latest album ‘Structuralism’ is based around a conversation between Mist and his sister, discussing themes of debate culture and personal growth and is an intricate and profound glimpse into the East London artist’s battles with self and the societal pressures that inform our own conscious experience. ‘Structuralism’ provides listeners a rare opportunity to disconnect from the world, and to consider their very presence in time and space. Mist’s ability to entrance listeners into states of experiential self-reflection and contemplation oozes from these seven minutes of vivid, meditative jazz composition."
