Mr. Tophat & Art Alfie
Mr. Tophat and Art Alfie construct dusty, disco-indebted house par excellence. After rejection from various labels, the fast rising-Swedish duo notably inaugurated their arrival early last year with five EPs in six months on their own Karlovak label. The EPs stacked their signature stamp on playful, timeless dancefloor cuts, with releases like the Ricardo Villalobos-approved I Want To See (That You’re In Love With Me) showcasing their chunky, club-centric house with a depth of soul.
Their mix for us shines some light on a few of their influences, with soul-infused gorgeousness mingling with rolling, twinkling house. With tracks from “Beaner, Lovers, Boya, Klaus Schonning, Mr. Tophat & Art Alfie and others,” its charming, slow-building intensity is seriously addictive.
