NYC-based funk art collective Loud Apartment are gearing up for their 'New Future' album, their third long-player, produced by legendary bassist / producer Bill Laswell and also featuring a guest performance by Garrison Hawk, long-term collaborator of Tricky and Sly & Robbie, among other notable artists. Ahead of that, Loud Apartment presents the lead track 'Technology'.
Formed by musician and technologist Nevaris A.C. , the band's current lineup also includes Bill Laswell on bass, turntablist DJ Logic, multi-instrumentalist Peter Apfelbaum (flute/sax), guitarist Will Bernard and drummer Lockatron.
This new release follows the band's aptly titled 'System Breakdown' LP, also produced by Bill Laswell and created at Orange Music in West Orange, New Jersey.
The band debuted in 2012 with their 'Get Up Get Down' LP, mixed by Bill Laswell and featuring Bernie Worrell (P-Funk, Talking Heads), who also appeared with them for live performances at Galapagos Art Space, Drom, and Public Assembly in NYC.
In 2019, Nevaris approached Bill Laswell about working with him and drummer Lockatron on new material. From the first time playing together in the studio the new project took off.
Their unique NYC fusion of funk, soul and rock with Latin, reggae, dub and hip hop influences is inspired by growing up on the old upper west side. I
As of 📌 November 10, 'Technology' will be available via Bandcamp and is also being offered as an instant grat download upon ordering the full 'New Future' album. On 📌 December 10, this long-player will be released digitally across platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.
"A proper and much-welcome dose of sanguinity much needed... highly vibrant sonic excellence that expounds the human possibility for expansion and evolution" ~ Big Takeover Magazine
"Music with a conscience... Here amongst the loose funk grooves, jazz infused improvisations, the soul sass and the reggae rhythms there is a whole manifesto" ~ Second Scene Magazine
"Worthy of your time and thought-space... music that will have you grooving and missing NYC's bohemian fusion scene, even if you've never experienced it first hand" ~ The Noise Journal
"Quasi mesh of funk and beat combine in a glorious mix of original indie... quiet thunder that gently strikes in your head enough to resonate and reverberate. This is a revolution" ~ Jammerzine
"A erhaps the most democratic human-spirit loving song about technology itself" ~ Amplify Music Magazine
The 'New Future' LP will be released on December 10
