West London emcee & producer Apex Zero released his debut solo album “Reality Provoking Liberation” on 28th October to critical acclaim.

Drawing from the sensibilities of hip hop from the Golden Era, he has received plaudits for addressing a wide range of political and social issues in his rhymes & lyricism, delivered with his trademark firebrand flow. The latest online publication to endorse the release is the UK’s Hip Hop In English

In opening, they introduce the album as “a verbal lambasting directed straight at the head honchos holding office all over the world. Delicate it is not.” before dissecting the lyrics, beats, tracks and summarizing “Heavy, yes. Hard hitting, yes. Informed, skilful and dynamic, yes. It’s a philosophy self described as Neo-Hardcore. Not for the casual listener, but definitely one for those willing to open their mind and question their surroundings.

Meanwhile, Apex has been busy putting the finishing touches to his live set for the album launch party taking party on Saturday 7th December, upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL. It’s set to be one of the hottest hip hop events of the month as he will also be joined by Caxton Press, Iron Braydz (Triple Darkness), DJ A Gee (Itch FM) and regular Hoochinoo host Peaches.

Entry is just £5.00 on the door, the night runs from 8pm – 1am with the nearest tube station being Aldgate East. Apex built up a reputation for his live performances at events such as End of the Weak, Speaker’s Corner and the raucous shows as part of The Pantheonz of Zenn-La, so this should prove to be a big show with so much quality on display. Definitely don’t miss this one!

You can hear Apex and Iron Braydz together on his earlier single “A Meeting of the Continents” where theyre also joined by Hasan Salaam

Elementz is a new event taking place in London which celebrates the traditional 4 elements of hip hop

The classic disciplines, deejaying, emceeing, bboy breaks & throwdowns and graffiti

Planned as a quarterly night, it aims to showcase some of the biggest established names in the scene together with giving new emerging talent the opportunity to shine, all knowledge under one roof. The main focus is on UK talent initially, but wont be confined to that in what is a global culture which has produced so many positive benefits for those involved.

The launch night takes place at The Rhythm Factory, 16 – 18 Whitechapel Road, London E1 1EW. Its in the Shoreditch area of town, nearest Tube station being Aldgate East.

The night will use both the venue’s rooms.

From 8pm – 3am, the line up is as follows:

ROOM 1

DJ Sets from DJ Sarah Love (resident), DJ 279 (Choice FM), DJ Mr Thing (Scratch Pervert / DMC Champion), DJ Snips (Livin Proof)

Live performances by Caxton Press (who will also be celebrating Kingpin and Amy True’s birthdays), showcasing tracks from their new Devil May Care album, Genesis Elijah, approaching legendary status from the days of “So Hip Hop” to current BBC Radio 1 support for his Painkillers & Pilkington EP & hosted by Mystro, another long time in the game with much respect for his work over the years. Currently promoting What Kind of Drug is Mystrogen” EP. New talent on stage will come in the shape of London’s Naba Napalm and Ether L Banks

ROOM 2

Open Mic session, live graffiti courtesy of FDC, and a bboy / bgirl throwdown including members of London’s Scope Hip Hop Dance Theatre Company. Its the room designed for all in attendance to participate, whether in a dance off, testing their rhyme skills with the crowd or anything else they think they can bring to the table

This room is hosted by DJ Snuff, organizer of End of the Weak and Speaker’s Corner, who will also be on stage with Caxton Press in the main room and DJ Johny Garcia

The live hip hop scene has grown considerably around the UK in the past year or two, thanks to some extent to the popularity of events such as Dont Flop’s rap battles, and the participation element that brings with it. A new generation has become interested in the history of the culture, and Elementz looks to provide a night which represents a broader experience and understanding. And in the traditions of hip hop, give an opportunity from the old to the new.

Price on the door is £8.00, this is an 18 and over event and dress code is casual but the venue advises “no tracksuits”

Each event will also be filmed by the UK’s leading online platform The Hip Hop Chronicle for future broadcast
