Altuz – “Altuz Baby!” + “Bitchin'” (Videos)

If genre-bending is the cresting wave of the top charts, Altuz is surfing with skill. Here is an expert at genre-fusion who remains true to the impulsions of hip-hop. If he wants to let his flow ride over a retro jazz piano, he’ll go for it. A country beat? You’ve got it.

“Altuz Baby!” — which you can watch above — juxtaposes frustrated quick-rhymes against the old-time jaunt of a piano. Set in a bar (which in this context could be referred to as a modern-day saloon), we watch as Altuz takes over the space, quite literally. The vibe is simple and steady … apart from the uncanny doppleganger effect. 

“Bitchin’” transitions smoothly with a lyric cross-over into a country-flavoured guitar riff, twang and all. Here, Altuz keeps his self-referential form and lets his sense of humour shine. Hitting the road in a cowboy hat and delivering lines straight into the camera, he once again taps a boundless energy. That’s his style: it’s slick and it’s fun. Altuz delivers levity and backs it up with technique. His flow says it all.
