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.

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.

Building Creations
A Apex’s Touch

Apex never stops when it comes to building greatness. So far he has completed re building the recording booths; equipped with wall through fan’s so that they remain cool. As to adding sound absorbing foam in the needed areas of the control room. Now his last task will be too add a drop down sound absorbing ceiling. With this in mind he attends to add the very best in sound absorbing foam and raw material to make this all possible.

Working with Auralex Acoustics on this matter Apex sees nothing but the best coming from his studio and mastering new possibilities for future clients. The production in making the drop down ceiling will not halt any client from recording; says Dontavious Dixon. Everything will be built in pieces and then brought in and put together making it a quick operation.
