At just 25 years old, London-based Project Alfie has established and finely tuned a remarkable style and sound. Adopting classic soundtracks from a stylistically rich era of film and fashion, Alfie injects the warmth and soul of some of his biggest musical influences including Michel Legrand and Donny Hathaway. This works to create an opulent blend that crosses genres, radiating the quality of a distinguished and talented performer and musician.
Project Alfie has been billed as one of the most exciting and unique artists going into the New Year. His distinctive image, heavily influenced by the idiosyncratic style of 60s cinema, coupled with an exceptional blend of cinematic soul and hip-hop, makes Project Alfie an incomparable act.

It’s funny, I remember Dr Dre talking about making ‘Detox’ around the same time Kanye released ‘The College Dropout’ …that was in 2004 yo!
Since then Kanye has probably had the most consistent running streak in Hip Hop History with 5 consecutive classic albums & Dr Dre has struggled to get off the starting line : (
He did start of promising though …remember this?
Then we got this …
We know it was a leak & un-finished but was still a sign of good things to come …then we got this
Produced by DJ Khalil & featuring the usual suspects I really liked it! Gangsta ish, weed & h*es …it was 2001 all over again : )
Then in 2011 Dr Dre dropped this as the lead single from the highly anticipated, revolutionary album ‘Detox’ …
What The Fuck !?!
How did we get here!? Why is Eminem crying & why is Dre talking about Slim Shady being the only one there for him? From what I saw T.I., Nas, Jay Z, Snoop & Akon were trying to help him get back on too. My biggest problem though is how generic the song sounds! Dre how could you stoop so low man! This is by far the biggest disappointment in Hip Hop History, even bigger than when Ma$e dropped ‘Double Up’ & we all know how that weed tray came out.
Big up Alex the Kid though, keep cashing those cheques brother!
