Whilst in the London Underground Hans and I (Oliver Freitag) met Alstom, a young talented 22 year old rapper/painter. But Alstom does not create any kind of rap, Alstom has elaborated London New-Era rap, an artistic movement that is more mature in form and meaning than classic Old-Era rap that still has solid roots in Harlem.
Alstom suffers mild depression and the fact that Alstom paints and sings help him get through the day!
Alstom paints with water-colors and likes nature, he is a neo-romantic. But he believes that time is near its end and likes to sing about matter. He is widely recognized as the precursor to New Age rap and many people in the Bronx respect his style. Some people consider Alstom too Avant Garde! But HSO (Hans) and I believe that he has a bright future ahead of him.
He loves to walk in Hyde Park and can be seen painting there hours upon end. He will be in Paris next month for his upcoming european tour. Get tickets while you can! We have invited him to record his upcoming album Space & Time at KeyboardMilk.com Studio.
You can already listen to his song A67 right here!
