For this 2013 apeabe began working on RELAPSE an EP set to contain material which he began to work in mexico this past December. Inspired by meeting great characters on this trip and a sense of family that brought apeabe back in the studio to further perfect his sound.
Among the colourful characters was artists was Maestro Jose Luis* who lives in Hujuapam De Leon, a city in the Mixtec region of Oaxaca (apeabe's home town) apeabe became influenced by artistic 'living' tombs opened as if they had been consumed by all type of insects from the ground. Feasting on the dead. This was of course was a sculpture that maestro jose luis was working on.
Inspired by this apeabe began to create polvo a track that you can preview on your left. Surrounded by the smells of wood shops, and late night fires with heavy tequila and mezcal drinking brought apeabe to come up with Relapse EP a series of sounds put together in the way only apeabe can to create truly amazing sounds.
The intended mode of the EP is minimal, a concept apeabe is starting to explore more and more often but not without a sense of melodic partnership with the minimal feel of the track.
"There is potential for this new EP we will see if we have learned something this past 2012..."apeabe comments on new EP>
RELAPSE is set to be released by the end of 2013 but nothing clear is set yet.
