Alfresco! is a Dutch drummer, composer, producer and performer. Since starting to play drums at the age of seven, he has been playing in numerous live bands at venues in the Netherlands and abroad, varying from his local venue De Vorstin to the iconic Sziget Festival in Budapest. The modern retro sound of Alfresco! is a mix of strong rhythms with a dash of jazz and a splash of funk. No surprise, as Alfresco! grew up in the seventies and eighties listening to the funk, soul and disco greats.
The debut Alfresco! song “Lockdown Funk” featuring Jeremy Olivier is a fruit of the lockdown itself. Alfresco! and Jeremy first met at Wisseloord Studios in the Netherlands, not long before Corona hit the world. Half a year later Alfresco! sent Jeremy a demo inviting him to contribute. Because of the lockdown they had to find new ways of creating and home recorded their parts separately. As soon as it was allowed again they re-recorded the vocals in the studio, they had originally been recorded in Jeremy’s bedroom closet, and finished the track to add a positive note to the pandemic.
