The latest review of the new album “Black Beach” by Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and producer Frost Gamble has been published in the UK’s Blacksheep Magazine.

Written by regular contributor Andrew Kay, the article first of all acknowledges the creative nature of the album with both artists given equal billing, in a similar vein to Premo and Royce da 5’9″s PRhyme project.

A track by track summary follows reflecting the contrasts in mood swings reflected in the style of production and subject matter which has at its core a stream of social commentary, a personal perspective on the experience of today’s “Black America“.

West London’s Apex Zero releases his first solo album “Reality Provoking Liberation” on 28th October, following on from the 2012 mixtape “The Pulse of the Awakening”

Known in the city as part of the First and Last duo, a past regular at the End of the Weak and Speaker’s Corner events and also as a member of the group Pantheonz of Zenn-La, he’s built up a rep for his energetic live shows and powerful lyrical delivery style, covering a range of political and social issues.

The self defined neo-hardcore tru skool hip hop Emcee also produced most of the album alongside his First and Last partner OMeziah, and while drawing from his eclectic range of musical influences for a new contemporary sound, the heart of the album draws from the true essence of hip hop within his rhymes

Andy Fletcher gave the album a run out and has provided this new review for long standing online magazine British Hip Hop. he opens :

As artists resolve to release their art without the backing of major labels they have become more willing to discuss subjects that seemed missing before. Apex Zero follows in this tradition, bringing content that might be familiar to fans of artists like Immortal Technique, with a flow that tends to be fast-almost agitated-over atmospheric instrumentals imbued with darkness and subtlety.

An in depth look at the lyricism, production and subject matter follows, concluding that “This album is a time capsule, like the rawer, younger cousin of Lowkey’s Soundtrack to the Struggle, and as such the areas which are less polished should remain so.” and that the intensity with which Apex Zero pours his heart & soul into this records means “it is far too provocative for a casual listen.

It’s, as usual for British Hip Hop, an intelligent and analytical review which you can read HERE
