The debut solo album by London rapper and producer Apex Zero dropped on 28th October and has proven to be one of UK Hip Hop’s biggest releases of 2013
British online magazine Data Transmission are the latest to give “Reality Provoking Liberation” their seal of approval via their review written by Jazz Gill. The publication have developed an international profile for their coverage of dance music, but have always had an appreciation for high caliber rap & hip hop artists as the opening lines of the review testify:
“Apex Zero’s Reality Provoking Liberation is perhaps the most passionate version of this style released in a long time.” as the article deciphers the political and social issues addressed, delivered with a passionate and energetic flow style and conscientious lyricism. It’s been a common theme in much of the media coverage which has been widespread for this album, not so much a throwback to an early sound, but a throwback to a time when the genre was used in a more thought provoking way
Summarizing “this is an album full of anthems for the street soldiers in the UK.” read the whole review HERE
