We finally have a set release date for “CRACK” (Apex’s EP) which is set to release on September 1st 2018. Originally “CRACK” was supposed to be an full length album, but ended up being only an EP. Knowing Apex he has his reasons for this; but what exactly are they? Apex noted that the only thing left to work on for “CRACK” was just the visuals. Audio was complete and that he would do a re listen to see if any changes needed to be made, but overall the album cover is still being worked on and video shoots are in the process. Considered to be an emotional EP coming from the have fun, party style of Apex‘s rap “CRACK” is sure to be an interesting wondering what would it sound like.

Let’s go ahead and add another collection to the sin series. The next release for the sin collection will be “Greed”. Just about every two years Apex will add another sin to his  Pandora’s Box. First we had “Lust“, then “Wrath” and now we will have “Greed”. The set release date will be Oct 1st 2018 prepping it for Halloween month.

Remember when “I’m Just a Machine” (Apex mixtape) started hitting the air waves and it was like all the machines all over the world was having a party… We’ll it is rumored that Apex has recently been in the works on making vol 3 of “I’m Just an Machine”. Talk about moving none stop. Not just to the point that Apex works on his music and still works with other artist and managing his businesses; but where do you find time to actually work on your own music is the question. Knowing Apex he would have a smart answer for an reply.  As of right now there is no official release date seeing how the “CRACK EP” and “Greed” will be releasing this year. Currently the following artist will appear on “I’m Just an Machine Pt3”; Mr Mel the Riddler, KL Bridges, Insano, Yo Star, and Roski. I’m am sure that this list will grow because if this machine vol is anything like the others; there will be a different feature on every song. As more news develops we will keep you posted.

A new Birth

Recently everyone has heard the news about Apex Studio expanding its reach to further southern states and the first on the list is South Carolina. Apex has been putting in work in building the new studio and everything is just about in place. So far all of the recording equipment has been installed along with various mics. Up till now the construction has been minimal. Dontavious Dixon (owner of Apex Studio) wanted to insure that the same quality or better would come from this studio since it will be the biggest studio in which Apex Studio will have. So far we do not have any current images but Apex has released numerous images from late night sessions with new clients and some of the images of the new unfinished studio can be seen in Mr Mel the Riddlers new music video “Money’s the Mission“. As of late the only thing which has been on Apex’s mind is the last pieces of recording gear which is needed to finish off the recording side and the new instrument room before he decides to start putting up walls and running the rest of the audio lines. Be sure to stay tuned as we will get some more in depth video or pictures of Apex StudioSouth and when completed we can compare the gear to Apex Studio North.

New Music Playing Loud!

Play It Loud!
For Pleasure or Pain
Apex just released 2 new albums titled "Dark Sun Rising" and "For Pleasure or Pain"which was very unexpected. Both of these albums were thought to be released next year, but it seems as if a early release was put into place. Their are also rumors that he will be releasing 1 or 2 more albums this year as well for the sin series; which is set to be completed with the next 2 albums for October. Currently "For Pleasure or Pain" and "Dark Sun Rising" can be found at CD Baby and on Spotify and will soon hit every major global market.

Rated R
Not new to the game of music is Mr Mel the Riddler. He has just released his second album titled "Rated R" and will be following it up with a mixtape featuring non other than Apex him self. Talk about putting in work for #TeamNoSleep these 2 artist from Apex Records and setting records and pushing their talents to the limits. For those of you who loved "Riddle Me This"; "Rated R" is sure to captivate the listeners as the Riddler talks about past and previous relation ships along with his daily life. "Rated R" can be found in Itunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play and every major market for music.

Going Live!

Going Live was a hit and the crowd loved it. Originally there were supposed to be 4 artist performing that night representing Apex Studio and Apex Records but instead only 2 performed. There was a late notice from Roc Deneiro that he wanted to perform, but couldn't meet the submission dead lines and Apex did not perform because he had to handle business with other situations. So the show opened up by Subliminal (unsigned talent) and then rocked out by Mr Mel the Riddler (Apex Records artist)  performing, just about every hit song from his new album "Rated R". Don't believe us just check out the video footage for yourself; "Going Live Show Footage"

IT'S COMING!:

Recently Mr Mel the Riddler has been very busy with life in general, but now as the clock ticks and time gets closer for his next album drop "Rated R"; it is back to business. "Rated R" is set to be released on Oct 13th 2015; which will give Mr Mel the Riddler two things to celebrate; his birthday and a album release. With this being said expect things to get a little crazy around Apex Records.

So far "Rated R" is said to be released digitally with heavy promotion/ advertising work. Apex stated that promotion will be so insane that his face will be literally everywhere. Dontavious Dixon (Apex Records CEO) wanted to sell hard copies but instead decided to go full digital. Seeing how sells from “Riddle Me This" were mostly digital; he feels that going full digital is the best way to go. He also stated that if there are hard copies the amount will be very limited.
