Sabir Alim

Sabir Alim is a singer, songwriter, poet and visual artist based in Riviera Beach, Florida. Readers of The Static Dive first heard from the Philadelphia native in November of last year upon the release of his debut single “Sowing Made EZ.” Since then, the prolific producer has released a total of six singles. His music mixes elements of Hip-hop, R&B and Funk with his own distinctive style. Lyrically Sabir Alim’s songs tackle a range of subjects from his own personal traumas to sociological commentaries on race, politics and sex. 

YRUMYX is the latest single from Sabir Alim, released worldwide to all major streaming services on March 7, 2022. The song was written as the soundtrack to a short film titled ‘YRUMYX2.’ The title is a clever play on words referencing both the singer’s romantic history and the XX/XY science of gender genetics. 

He delivers his testimony in the form of a beat poem over a soulful 70’s Jazz groove. He recounts autobiographical tales of love and sex. Halfway through the track, the tune drops to a groovy and hypnotic bit of avant-garde audio performance art with a psychedelic mix of conga drums, synths and other percussion. 

The song is a companion piece and soundtrack for Sabir Alim’s short film, YRUMYX2. The film is currently in production. However he has released an early cut on his YouTube channel which you can watch here. Check out the video below. You can also hear the song YRUMYX on the Deep Indie Beat playlist.

In the film I play four different aspects of self, all of which are my life’s experiences. There is one character who talks about having his first sexual experience with an older woman, which is what the song “Young” was about. Another character presents relationships from religious precepts, and the other speaks from a psychological perspective.

The animated character (my mini-me) is my radical yet empathetic self. ‘The complexity of me,’ is what all human beings are comprised of. Yet many will only consciously experience two; joy and pain. I waited until I could get the right soundtrack for the film. I never thought that it would be me who would write, produce, and record it. Just more facets of my gifts from the Creator. – Sabir Alim
