Apashe: Hard and Majestic
Apashe is an electronic music producer and DJ originally from Brussels, Belgium. Currently, he is based in Montreal, Canada. Apashe has been a part of Kannibalen Records since the year 2011. Certainly, anyone who listens to Apashe‘s music is sure to be captivated by his uniquely enchanting sound.
Each of his intricate tracks is perfectly interlaced with elements of other music styles including classical music, trap, and more. If you haven’t yet listened to any of his tracks, check out “Majesty” with Wasiu, “Battle Royale” with Panther, and “Good News“.
Apashe’s most recent album, Renaissance, has been one of his biggest works of art yet. It took a literal orchestra to create each track on the album. “Hard and majestic” are the words that Apashe uses to describe his sound. The way that he seamlessly blends classical music and dark, bass-heavy rhythms proves this description to be true.
