Allie is a solo artist from Berlin.
"The first 2 were homerecorded and released with Ramin Ton, a Berlin-based gang. He co-scored a film with Paul Giamatti and then played solo shows in New York, Paris and all over Germany.
His 3rd album Uncanny Valley was recorded at Clouds Hill Recordings in Hamburg and came out on March 1st." Source : his Bandcamp
He released 3 albums :

First album "Mimi king" (2010)

Second album "New Friends" (2011)
" 'New friends' is heavily based on guitar picking and Allie's fragile, doubled voice, but is also strongly influenced by the fresh and clear sound of hip hop artists J Dilla and Shabazz Palaces: more bass with beats suddenly dropping in, supported by sampling and a flow that „comes from the deepest parts of the soul“ (music blogger Allan Vizzuett). Although 'New friends' is striving for something new, its style hints at some of Allie's musical influences: Avey Tare of Animal Collective, Bianca Casady of CocoRosie, Atlas Sound and former múm-singer Kría Brekkan. " Label Ramin Ton.

Third album "Uncanny Valley" (2013)
