Innovative producer Apashe unveils his latest genre-bending gem with new single ‘Devil May Cry’, a collaboration with French based classical pianist Sofiane Pamart, out now.
‘Devil May Cry’ is a stunning slice of sonic melodrama from Apashe, whose surging, symphonic production has become his inimitable calling card. Sofiane Pamart’s delicate piano is backed by swelling strings and sharp, caustic trap-infused beats, creating an aura of beauty and danger in equal measure.
Following the recent Magugu collaboration ‘Revenge of the Orchestra’, ‘Devil May Cry’ offers another taste of Apashe’s upcoming album Antagonist, which is set to feature crossover influences of classical music with recordings of the Prague Philharmonic and Bulgarian Symphony Orchestras, and collaborations with a number of high-profile artists. The single also follows the release of ‘Fracture’, the acclaimed collaboration with Joey Valance & Brae and Flux Pavilion, and ‘Gasoline’ featuring Delhi hiphop star RAGA, and precedes the producer’s upcoming headlining tour with a Brass Orchestra.
