Producer Ashem releases new instrumental album ‘Hip Hop Ashtrumentals’. In his own words:
“I just felt inspired by that early/mid 90’s boom bap sound that I grew up listening to. When I go back to Illmatic, Muddy Waters to some of Tribe’s early stuff, soul samples with muffled drums and saxophone and some of that vinyl crackling sound. This is how I remember Hip Hop. Some of these beats were ideas I was using for artists I was working with. This is a free download for promotional use but people are free to also contribute”
Ashem delivers his second LP titled Hip Hop Ashtrumentals. Hip Hop Ashtrumentals is a beats tape that’s jam packed with a verity of hip hop boom bap sounds for all the hip hop heads, Inspired by the golden era sound, this 16 track LP will not disappoint the hip hop listeners!

Apex has been working with grassroots and militant organisations, educating himself and others, organising and building towards overturning the oppressive mechanism at large since his mid-teens, around the same time that he entered London’s underground Hip Hop scene as part of his crew, First and Last with his brother OMeza Omniscient. Years of earning respect and enhancing their reputation, which lead to collaborations and working relationships with many of the scenes most prominent artists and organisations, manifested in the October 2013 release of Apex’s debut solo album ‘Reality Provoking Liberation’.
