Christopher Mike-Bidtah, aka Def-I, will release his new album, “Arrow Rhymanics,” on April 7.
Def-I, of Albuquerque, will host two release parties for his new album on April 8 at the LaunchPad in Albuquerque and April 9 in Shiprock at the Asterix before going on tour to promote the album.
“This is my fourth solo endeavor,” said Def-I in a phone interview with the Times.
He released his last album “Shields for Raining Arrows” in January 2016 and performed on the Vans Warped Tour.
“Arrow Rhymanics” will feature 14 songs and music from different producers with more female vocalists than his previous albums.
“I couldn’t forget about my female friends, they are on every track,” said Def-I.
The title of the album comes from the word “aerodynamics,” which is the study of the way air moves around things, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Def-I said the title is similar to a master of ceremonies who raps to an audience and their words travel around the room and into the ears of listeners.
“Everyone has a different flow, flow in MC rhyming,” said Def-I. “I love hearing different flows, study and learn.”
