Asked to describe the overall theme of “Deepest Point – Pt. 1,” Altro Sound writes, “Our debut album is a collection of works written through the highs and lows of adolescence and young adulthood. It’s about the beacons of hope and the letdowns aplenty one experiences when transitioning into a realm of self-direction; the early steps away from institutional socialization of school and into the real world, alone.”

Deepest Point – Pt. 1” has a clear aim, in fact, one which reaches the listener before the opening track is through. Altro Sound want to comfort.

The message of music brings security in times when one is most alone and unfamiliar,” they write. “We want to share that gift – the feeling of unity within the human condition to others through vocally driven, lyrical accounts of growing up.”

Altro Sound’s “Deepest Point” Parts 2 and 3 are scheduled to drop on Feb. 1 and Mar. 1, respectively.

Alex Coleman releases new album ‘Alleviate Biz State’

The songwriter and producer of hip hop known as Alex Coleman has released his latest official album, “Alleviate Biz State.” The album contains eight original Alex Coleman tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Asli Nincs Srange record label. Provocative, socially conscientious, and built on rock-solid back beats, “Alleviate Biz State” showcases Alex Coleman as one of the most intriguing hip-hop artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Baltimore, MD’s Alex Coleman cites as main artistic influences Will Smith, DMX, Nas, and Dr.Dre. Alex Coleman’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on old-school hooks, carefully crafted rhymes, and an intent to change the world, “Alleviate Biz State” by Alex Coleman has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Alleviate Biz State,” Alex Coleman writes, “The message this album shares with its listeners is that real hip hop has returned. Excuse the profanity but most of these mainstream rappers are bulls–t. Most if not all of the mainstream rappers are rapping about things they never did and/or portraying a lifestyle that is way above their means. Unlike albums by said artists, ‘Alleviate Biz State’ comes at you hard from beginning to end, and when the last track has finished playing, the listener will move on with the satisfaction that real authentic hip hop has returned in full force.”

Alex Coleman has been recording music since 2013. His current official bio notes that at age 12 he began an old-school hip-hop CD collection. This would become integral to “Alleviate Biz State.” Shortly thereafter, his CDs were stolen. When he started collecting again, he focused on current and catalog albums. He has since been performing at venues such as the Teavolve Cafe, the Ottobar, and the Depot.

“What you currently hear music-quality-wise is five-plus years of trial and error in the pursuit of a level of excellence that’s on par if not better than the albums in his CD collection,” his bio states. “It’s an absurd goal, no doubt about it, but Alex has never been one to take the easy route. That is why this emcee from Baltimore, MD will end his career as a bonafide hip-hop legend.”

Alleviate Biz State” by Alex Coleman on the Asli Nincs Srange label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, hip hop fans.
