Def-i

Christopher Mike-Bidtah

Hailing from Albuquerque, NM, Def-i represents the Diné Nation as one of the Southwest’s most active and prominent touring artists. His performance styles range wide from Hip-Hop and Spoken Word to Contemporary Native-American Acoustic. Emerging from the Underground Indy rap circuit, his eclectic repertoire of talent has allowed him to single-handedly perform regularly throughout the country solo or alongside his newly formed live-fusion quartet ‘DDAT.’ With multiple national tours and festivals under his belt, his recent ground breaking 2017 solo project ‘Arrow•Rhymanics’ received much deserved fanfare & launched him into featured appearances on internationally recognized segments such as Eminem’s XM radio station Shade 45, Sway In The Morning on Shade 45, BBC News, National Public Radio (NPR), Vans Warped Tour, PBS, and a plethora of other Hip-Hop outlets.

 

DRZLTN

Following the success of his recent album, iconic New Mexico artist Def-i serves up new sounds and vibes delivering a new EP titled ‘DRZLTN’ on Friday, November 20th. Teaming up with Northwest Super-Producer Smoke M2D6 of Oldominion, “DRZLTN” is one of the biggest projects from Def-i’s catalog thus far. The album features guest appearances from Myka 9, Illmac, One Be Lo, Sleep of Oldominion, Smoke M2D6, Mazzi & S.O.U.L. Purpose, A. Billi Free, Baby Shel, Liv The Artist, Tanaya Winder, Stuart James, YVHIKV, Landon Wordswell, plus more. The album title itself is short for ‘deresolution’ and the sound was inspired from the classic movie/game ‘Tron’ juxtaposed with imagery of futuristic off-grid ‘Rez’ life deprogramming.
