DJ APT ONE - FICH SO SAXY EP
DJ Apt One is known as one who is and has been on the forefront of many important movements in dance music over the last ten years. He was a part of the multi-genre style of DJing that catapulted his adopted Philadelphia to the pinnacle of the DJ world in the early 2000s. As a part of the duo RCMP, his work foreshadowed the emergence of Nu-Disco before the genre even had a name. He is an internationally renowned edit-maker, appearing on compilations alongside the likes of Todd Terje. Now, he is one of the OGs of "Moombahton" - the polyglot global EDM movement that saw DJ Apt One find fame on the BBC, NPR and elsewhere along with pioneers Dave Nada, DJ Sabo, Dillon Francis and more.
He is also a founder of Young Robots Records.
This EP is the first fully instrumentated Moombahton record - with live bass, drums, horns and guitar to go with stylized latin house drum programming. The title track, originally from DJ Sabo's Moombahton Massive 3 EP on Sol Selectas, was one of the hits in the first wave of Moombahton. DJ Apt One adds a b-side called "Red Meat" that came as a byproduct of his work with Gregor Salto's Downpitch label.
DJ Apt One provides remixes of both of his tracks, and lil'dave of Philly's legendary Illvibe Collective provides a Latin House grooved remix that reminds people why Illvibe are Philly's formost funk ambassadors. DC's Vjuan Allure, one of the rising stars of the Ballroom sound (see: Mike Q) provides a jackin remix as well.
