Albi X

Half Step

Be prepared to be blown away by the new hype man of 2022. Intoxicating and energetic, Albi X is set to tear down boundaries.
As an Afro-German of a new generation whose self-image is not based on being a stranger in their own country, but whose identities often cross national borders, ALBI X speaks deeply from the soul of many young people with more complex identities and life realities than „simply German“. Locating himself on the difficult paths of German everyday life, the artist does not confront the realities experienced every day, such as the manifold facets of racism or classism, with aggression or gangsta attitude. Instead, he celebrates a multinational self-image with a lyrical fusion of Lingala, French and English, countering the experienced exclusion with an extremely positive, energetic and inclusive worldview – be your best version possible is his motto. His sound is truly international, breaking boundaries on all levels – national borders as well as style and genre boundaries.
