Having released his debut solo album “Reality Provoking Liberation” on 28th October, west London rapper & producer Apex Zero has been busy in rehearsals with his live band preparing for his album launch party on Saturday 7th December upstairs at The Vibe Bar in London’s Brick Lane.

The event runs from 8pm – 1am and he will also be joined by Caxton Press, Iron Braydz, Itch FM’s DJ A.Gee and host Peaches. At £5.00 on the door, it’s going to be real value for money to see some of the city’s top hip hop talent on display and should be a great “blow out” in the lead up to the Xmas holiday period. You can see more about the venue and the night at www.vibe-bar.co.uk

There has been a fantastic media response to the release over the past few months, culminating in a 4 star review in the current issue of MOJO Magazine, and the young emcee has also been conducting further interviews since the release of the album. One of them was with British online Rawroots, a platform which has run for many years now with a specific interest in UK and international hip hop & rap music.

He took time out to speak with the site’s Boulent about his album, the inspirations behind it and plans for the future as part of the duo First and Last. Read the full interview HERE

He also released a brand new video for the single Absolute Zero last week

Look out for further media coverage hitting the internet shortly, and meantime the album can be bought in digital and CD format direct from http://firstandlast.bandcamp.com

RPL-Blacksheep

British publication Blacksheep Magazine has a long history of reporting on international hip hop & rap music news, events, releases & features.

Their regular contributor Andrew Kay took several listens through the new album by London’s Apex Zero. Out on 28th October, “Reality Provoking Liberation” is his debut solo album, although has released a previous mixtape in 2012 “The Pulse of the Awakening” and was previously known as part of the duo First and Last (still going strong) and the group The Pantheonz of Zenn-La.

Coming up through London events such as End of the Weak & Speaker’s Corner, and as part of these groups, he became known for his lyricism covering a wide range of political and social issues combined with a fiery delivery style. The review touches upon this in “The anger and the passion command every verse enabled by some wonderfully fluid production“, the production in the large part also courtesy of Apex Zero with further contributions from First and Last’s OMeziah

With comparisons of the “social commentary” made with artists such as Public Enemy, Immortal Technique and Brother Ali with a “rich London and UK centric vibe to it” the review then proceeds through a track by track breakdown, summarized as a whole with the description “an album of reportage, a war report from the tower blocks of a stark, cold Big Smoke, where social injustice and human enslavement are commented upon with the fist pumping ire of a frustrated humanist.

Check out examples of the album via the single “A Meeting of the Continents” featuring Hasan Salaam & Iron Braydz, and the video Chaotic Revolt
