After setting the scene with his Requiem and The Good, The Bad & The Fake EPs, Apashe is at last set to release his sophomore album with a new sound, Renaissance. Apashe has proven that classical motifs and pulse-pounding bass can go hand in hand. On his new single “Distance,” he proves that once again, bringing in soaring strings and suspenseful melodies paired with a tasteful trap beat.
‘This song came to life at my friend Gab Gagnon’s studio called Homy. We’ve wanted to make music together for ages. We messed around for a day then suddenly got these chords that really hooked us. Later on, I sent him a track using these chords and we instantly felt the potential. I figured it would be sick to have it played by the orchestra in Prague that was planned for my album. From there, it became this strange classical hybrid song. Gab thought Geoffroy would be a great fit and I couldn’t agree more. Took some time to make it happen in between tours but we finally made it and considering the love we felt for the song we decided to make it the first single.” – Apashe
As far as debut singles for an album, Apashe could have done much, much worse. Check out “Distance” from his forthcoming album Renaissance, due out 2020 on Kannibalen Records.
