DOWNLOAD: Apollo Brown – Skilled Trade
Building anticipation for his debut album, The Reset, out May 25, recently signed Mello Music Group producer Apollo Brown re-releases a mixtape done in 2007 named Skilled Trade. Raw in its sound, Skilled Trade is a collection showcasing Apollo Brown’s honed craft through the 30 tracks of instrumentals included in the album. “Really, the inspiration behind putting this project out was to get a little bit of my sound out of the bedroom and into the streets,” says Apollo.
A true display of talent, not only did Apollo produce and arrange it himself but also created the physical album through his own means, then distributing them the same exact way. But it isn’t just talent that makes Apollo a good producer but also the hard work he is willing to devote to his craft. “The dirty boots on the cover signify work. That’s all I do,” Apollo says, “I’m always working hard to better my craft and make sure my music sounds as good as it can.” On The Reset, Apollo’s hard work and talent will mix with the likes of accomplished emcees such as Rapper Big Pooh, Stik Figa and fellow label mates, Diamond District to bring the debut album to most excited fans.
