The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
National Sawdust hosts the album release concert for London based producer, pianist, bandleader and MC Alfa Mist, in celebration of his fourth full-length solo record Bring Backs, out April 2022 via ANTI-. The album’s nine tracks of groove-based intricacies, lyrical solipsism and meandering fragments are tied together by a poem written by Hilary Thomas expressing the sensuous realities of building community in a new country. Alfa Mist is one of the most dynamic and consistent talents to emerge from London’s widely celebrated jazz reformation.
Originally from Newham, East London. Alfa Mist began his trip through music as a grime and hip-hop producer. As with many contemporary beatmakers, Alfa's sample digging opened up a world of vintage sounds including soundtracks and jazz. Both a self-taught pianist and accomplished producer, Alfa's roots can be traced through Dilla and The Roots back to Thelonius Monk and Avishai Cohen. His most recent album, Structuralism, built on the huge organic growth of Antiphon, with an extensive sold out tour.
