With his first full length instrumental project since his cult-classic Clouds, Detroit producer Apollo Brown is back with “The Answer” off of his upcoming album Thirty Eight. The track is simply cold. Not below freezing chilly – but cold like the the chrome on the piece carried by Youngblood Priest.
The track’s characteristics expand beyond melody and sequence, with textured hisses and crackles resonating from the samples chosen by Apollo. This extra layer of character creates a well curated vintage feel that seamlessly crosses the bridge between ’70s/’80s soul and hip hop – check out the trailer above for confirmation.
Be sure to listen to the track below as well as stay up on the release of Thirty Eight, set for May 6th via Mello Music Group. The cinematic composition’s only vocal features will be provided by Roc Marciano, a perfect fit for the classically filtered canvas Apollo Brown has crafted. Each CD comes with a 5″ inch vinyl with the Roc tracks on it and a 180-gram full length is also available and comes with a 45 featuring two bonus instrumentals.
