It's in this rarefied air where you'll find Detroit's Apollo Brown, constantly conjuring fresh innovations out of a tried and true formula. Just consider the revered legends that have collaborated on full - length albums with him: Ras Kass ("Blasphemy"), Guilty Simpson ("Dice Game"), Skyzoo ("The Easy Truth"), Big Pooh ("Words Paint Pictures"), Planet Asia ("Anchovies"), and O.C. ("Trophie s.") No less than DJ Premier declared the latter "hip - hop for the people," naming "Trophies" the best album of 2012. This is the tradition that Apollo Brown triumphantly upholds: the head - nodding, screwface - inducing, soul - replenishing lineage of Primo and Pete Rock, J Dilla and Large Professor, Mobb Deep and DJ Muggs. Everyone from Danny Brown to M.O.P., Freddie Gibbs to Masta Ace, Black Milk to Oddisee have spit bars over his beats. Don't sleep on his projects with The Left, Ugly Heroes, and Hassaan Mackey, or his several acclaimed instrumental albums. Amounted together, it gives Apollo Brown a body of work that lives up to the legacy of the older gods. The explanation why is pretty simple. If you still have any doubts, all you need to do is press play, and experience what consistency sounds like.
He will be supported by a Mellowdias Thump favourite. Melbourne based French producer H zel also throwing down a live beat set with a bunch of projects about to drop in 2018. Mellowdias Thump residents will round out the heavy hitters on night of break your neck action!
