Press Release :
Russian born Mikhail Galkin -- aka DJ Alibi--is poised to release his debut album One Day. Consisting of eleven purely instrumental tracks and five tracks complimented by his label mate Giant Panda, Boston Insight, a legendary MC from Alibi’s home town Toronto, Theo 3, and Alibi’s crew Bamboombox. One Day is a mixture of lush boom-bap rooted instrumentals and cleverly worded rhymes unlike any hip-hop record to date.

Born outside of Moscow, Russia 1986, Alibi has been steeped in music his whole life. At 4, Alibi picked up a violin, then a piano, a trumpet, a bass, a guitar, and others to follow. At the age of 12, Alibi's family moved to Toronto, Canada where his love of music followed him. Within six months of living in his new hometown, Alibi had already made his first beat utilizing his newest instruments: turntables and samplers.

In 2005, the talented 19-year old sent a CD to Thes One (of the Los Angeles group People Under The Stairs) who immediately realized the talent in Alibi's production. The CD Alibi sent to Thes (which got him his deal with Tres Records) was filled with lush and sophisticated arrangements that push musical boundaries and defy post hip-hop labeling. The now 21-year old Alibi shies away from the title prodigy, but to Tres Records staff, prodigy is an accurate word to describe this producer.

His first appearance on Tres was his mix and remixes on the KTRS AM Radio Show Vol. 2 that was included in Tres Presents: Shipping and Handling. Alibi’s sophisticated musical arrangements blend the rhythm, melody, and drums to stand out on their own without the need of an emcee. Alibi is the perfect balance of music theory and hip-hop intuition.
