Up and coming LA-based artist Apache Don may just be the prodigal son of atmospherically gripping jazz-infused Hip Hop Rap. “Slow Down” which was released 6 months ago as part of their debut EP “Apache Blues” is irrefutably the best introduction to his reflective sound. While the vocals may run a little too fast for you to really lock into from the first listen, that just gives you all the more reason to hit repeat on this truly refreshing single.
Plenty of artists are keen to mix elements of old school Hip Hop with contemporary Trap, yet Apache Don manages in a deft way which allows you to slip comfortably into the soundscape whilst being endeared with inventive yet subtle layers of distinction.
