9 March 2018, Kuala Lumpur – After a successful third album and mega-hit single titled Amboi which won him the Best Performance award at the recent Anugerah Juara Lagu 32, Altimet is back again with more new music and has his sights set to once again shake his fans nationwide with his highly-anticipated 4th solo album release, ‘Air’.
The 39-year-old rapper teamed up with some of the industry’s best as well as most talented new-age producers such as Omar K, Navigator, Emir Hermono, Kidd Santhe, and Music Kitchen, giving ‘Air’ a fresh, new sound while still keeping his distinct style of whiplash rhymes, funky accentuation, and sharp wit.
“The album is inspired by Bruce Lee who shares the same birthdate as me and his famous quote ‘be like water’. Water takes form of whatever vessel it is poured into- often misunderstood for its simplicity but yet so powerful. I wanted fans to see the versatility of Altimet instead of having them expecting the same from me”
This 6-track album featuring Pekin Ibrahim, Faizal Hussein, Baraka Blue, Kidd Santhe, Ashtin and Aina Abdul will be distributed by Warner Music Malaysia.
The ‘Air’ album is available for pre-order on iTunes starting 9th March 2018, and will be officially released on all digital platforms by 30th March 2018. The physical CD album designed exclusively by the Kongsi Design team will be in stores nationwide starting 1st April 2018.
