West African, Australia-residing trap artist, Apollo4K’s, latest track ‘Land of the Realist’ hooks you in from the first bass-drenched beat. With the ability to contort electronic effects to alchemic effect, Apollo4K brings a brand-new hype to new wave trap.
The rolling rhythms create the perfect platform for Apollo4K’s bars to find synergy with, and as you can probably guess from the title, his lyricism goes deeper than most. Land of the Realist is an absorbing exhibition of the artist’s gritty gravitas and commercial potential.
Land of the Realist is now available to stream via Spotify.
