Apex Records Expansion

So far this year we have had a lot of shows; show casing new talent from the new comers Gemi and TMH along side Apex and Mr Mel the Riddler. From the beginning of the year until now our artist and guest artist have rocked the stage at the Evening Muse; but this up coming show will be the last one for this year until we kick off the new  year with new music from Apex and Mr Mel the Riddler.

“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.

Apex Records Updates


Apextacy Remix feat. Mr Mel The Riddler is now available in IHeart Radio. This was a shock to Apex Records artist Apex and Mr Mel the Riddler. After all the music submissions to IHeart Radio they have finally picked one; said Apex. We plan on doing some major advertising about our music being in IHeart Radio, but we sill haven’t had time to enjoy the success with the current projects which we have coming up; Apex noted.



The two shows that was setup by Apex Records through Afton Shows was a big success. It gave independent artist the chance to meet and open up for Apex Records artist Mr Mel the Riddler. Money Man was supposed to be in attendance, but was unavailable to show up… so the show still went on. The first show consisted of Mr Mel the Riddler performing some new songs from his mixtape “Arkham City” along with the remix of one of his album songs “Going Hard Remix” featuring Gemi and performing the Apextacy Remix with Apex himself. Talk about crowd stoppers; Apex and the Mr Mel the Riddler make a great duo on stage together when performing songs. After a fun night performing it was no time to relax because they hard to do “Go Hard or Go Home Part 2” within the following week. Go Hard or Go Home Part 2 was exactly what the name says. The opening acts for this event was TMH (@TMH_MUSIC), Charlotte America (which did not show), Gemi (@Gemizajewel), and Mr Mel the Riddler.  If you missed it you missed a good performance which topped the first. We don’t want to spoil this event footage so check out the video feed for it.
