For the third single of his upcoming Renaissance LP, Apashe gets rap icon Tech N9ne on the mic for ‘Insane,’ now out via Kannibalen Records. Continuing the high energy of previous singles ‘Distance‘ and ‘Uebok (Gotta Run), ‘Insane‘ is a great collaboration between the Montreal-based producer and the American rap legend.
Apashe frequently incorporates rap vocals into his records and Tech N9ne’s signature “chopper-style” rap is a perfect fit for Apashe’s sturdy basslines. Tech N9ne uses his rapid-fire vocals to project chilling vocals. These vocals could overpower a track but Apashe’s sound design and bass complement them expertly. In conclusion, ‘Insane’ is just more evidence that Apashe’s upcoming Renaissance LP is full of heaters.
In addition to the Renaissance LP, Apashe is also support for Black Tiger Sex Machine‘s current Futuristic Thriller Tour. The Belgium-born producer signed to Kannibalen Records in 2011. Afterwards, he has established a large discography of bass-heavy anthems that feature his unique style of sampling and sound design. Films such as Fast & Furious and John Wick 2 include his tracks. Also, he is known for his live sets where he showcases his massive array of unreleased edits.
