So far Apex has released 2 singles “Do You Remember ft Porsha Boyd” and “Who Am I”; with a video to follow “Who Am I”.

Lately they have been through out Charlotte, NC and Rockhill, SC doing shows and having fun in the process. Hevay promo have been passed out through out every event which they have been in and believe me when we say that the streets are watching and waiting for the release of Mr Mel the Riddler’s “Riddle Me This” album to drop this year of April. We caught up with Apex to get words on the “Riddle Me This” album and all he had to say was that everything was running on time and expect more videos to stir up more insight upon the release.

Releasing this month will be a video for the song “Cruise Control” which is one of the hottest songs on “Riddle Me This” by Mr Mel the Riddler.

More to come on the release of “Edible” to come.

NEW ARTIST:

“Which One Will it Be”

Just as Mr Mel the Riddler finishes up his album “Arkham City” we hear that Apex Records will be signing a new artist and managing more artist as well. It is not yet sure as to who this new artist will be, but we think that it may be “Chyna Macra” aka The Future. A solo artist which had a production deal from Apex Studio in the middle of 2005. Sources say that it also could be “Yo Star” from the UK which was recently in the studio with Apex working on a song with him. Also lets not forget about “Nero”; who was signed to Apex Studio for a Promo EP which Apex and him recorded a song titled “Got That” (which is the #1 song on the LUST Album). There are is really no telling who could be the next artist signed to Apex Records; but one thing is for sure…. it will happen next week.

BACK TO WORK ALL READY?

Recently artist Apex has been out of work with a rare breathing disorder. His breathing had gotten really shallow Sunday night September 30th. He was transported to CMC University that night by his wife where he was quickly aided. He was given breathing treatments until early Monday mourning and was sent home for bed rest until further following up with his doctor this coming Friday. Apex was told to take take the week off from work, but will he…NO! He has received plenty of rest and has been taken his prescription which seems to have been doing him good. Even though he will be returning back to work this Thursday October 5th he will not be recording anything. We will be making sure that he takes everything slow and relax.

WEBSITE UPDATES!

We have made some changes to the Apex Records website. The recording side of the website is still intact and nothing has changed from it, but we have made some small changes to the record label side. You will see that we have changed the artist pages; those signed and managed under Apex Records. They now include a new layout and current releases from the artist as well. The Vault page has been changed to the MEDIA page. Nothing on this page has been changed, but we did upgrade the Soundcloud module so that listeners could like, comment, and browse the current songs in the playlist. We will be upgrading the STORE portion of the site along with adding a TOUTS page. We will still keep everything streamlined as to make sure the website loads quick and is easily viewable from desktop and mobile devices.

ONE MORE SHOW…

We are looking for Mr Mel the Riddler to perform one last time for this year until his album is released next year. So far it has been a good year as Mr Mel the Riddler has been doing his thing along side Apex and other guest artist on stage. The show is set for November, but we do not have a set date yet. The show will be booked through Afton Shows and it is guaranteed to be a banger.

Going about it the RIGHT WAY!
