APOLLO PHOX:

BRISTOL BEATMAKER RELEASES ‘ARSON MEETSMONDAY‘, TAKEN FROM HIS UPCOMING ‘JOIN THE CLUB’ EP

Arson Meets Monday‘ is the first track from Apollo Phox‘ upcoming EP ‘Join The Club‘.  Inspired by the seditious nature of Chuck Palahniuk’s ‘Fight Club’, ‘Join The Club‘ sees the British producer enjoy the creative freedom that comes from focusing solely on one’s own system of values.

Stream via SoundCloud

The first single from ‘Join The Club’ is based around some classic-sounding Hip Hop  percussion and an ethereal vocal sample which pays homage to the surreal nature of the story that influenced its creation.  ‘Arson Meets Monday‘ also features scratching from DJ Rogue, a stalwart of the Bristol beat scene.

Join The Club‘ is firmly rooted in Instrumental Hip Hop, with Boom Bap production and chopped-up samples taking centre stage.  As with ‘Fight Club’ itself, the EP evokes a state of insomnia as surreal vocal cuts fade in and out of hypnotic rhythmic patterns.

Hailing from Bristol, Apollo Phox usually starts his beat-making process by digging through crates: “I take to record shops and get my dig on; the more obscure the record, the better.”  His latest project, however, started with a film: “I was messing around with the quote from Fight Club’s Ikea scene and it all suddenly fell into place like a puzzle piece.”

Join The Club‘ EP will be released June 15th via UK label and lifestyle brand Province.​
