Terry Hooligan b/w Temper D 'One Step Ahead EP' [APEM031]


Terry Hooligan b/w Temper D 'One Step Ahead EP' [APEM031] by apemusic


It's Bass music time again!!!!

We have a very special bass heavy release for you this time in the form of 3 tracks from the mighty bassmonkey himself , BASS=WIN head honcho Terry Hooligan and the ever awesome due Mr Temper D & Balkansky (SuicideDub etc)

Mr Hooligan has turned in a ruff n ready short sharp blast of bass music switch up mayhem. 'One Step Ahead' gets stright to the point and never bloody leaves!!

Taking it into realms of facemelt it never thought it would go, 'One Step Ahead' has been torn a new arsehole by none other that Temper D and the bulgarian badman Balkansky. Huge drums & screwface bass of the highest proportions makes for a surefire winner. Be warned...if you like you're bass heavy and ya beats hard then this is most definitely one to tickle your fancy/back passage/mum (delete as applicable)

To round things off the ever cool Temper D has given us his track 'Last Days' as a lil bonus bizzle and we love it. A very cool little chunk of electro 4/4 dubsteppy party action!

Original Primate 'Bassline Skanker / Battle Dance [APE Music] - OUT NOW!

Original Primate 'Bassline Skanker / Battle Dance' [APEM030] by apemusic

Listen on soundcloud | http://soundcloud.com/apemusic/sets/original-primate-bassline

Buy from Beatport | http://www.beatport.com/release/original-primate/684245


As we emerge completely unharmed from our summer of festival madness we at APE towers are proud, and quite frankly lucky, to have reached our 30th Birthday!

For our 30th we emerge from our mispent 20's with a thoroughly grown up slice of proper breakbeaty bizzle from fellow monkey lovers Original Primate (although we are the original primate we'll defer to them for this one release)

Original Primate have chalked up a few releases in their short partnership. Pete O'Connor (Secureunit) and Rob Focuz (Apply The Breaks) came together through mutual appreciation of dirty raves, breaks and basslines and had their first release off the back of winning a competition set by Computer Music Magazine and the Canadian producer Myagi.

The Big Chill set are here! Tom Middleton’s Sound of the Cosmos tent was possibly the most popular club tent on site and Friday and Saturday night it was a Slugrave takeover.

Alongside Joe Muggs (Mixmag, Adventures in Dubstep and Beyond) the Slugs rocked it from 2am – 5am, ish, each night.

The tent featured an incredible soundsystem, minimal lighting and 1000 people. Saturday night the head honcho Tom Middleton took to the decks and joined us, amazing us with his own slug creations and jedi mixing skills. Big night out!

Solid Frame 'Forever (Ben & Lex Remix)' OUT NOW!


Solid Frame 'Forever' Ben and Lex RMX Soundcloud Teaser 192k by Ben and Lex

Check out our new reamix of Solid Frames 'Forever' available now from Beatport and Juno also theres a free remix download by from Hanuman Tribe available from soundcloud.

This one is epic.

Did we already mention that this is an epic release?

Massive 4 am vibes, pleasing the crowd with the perfect blend of bright city lights at
night atmosphere, raw basses, punchy drums and all-out powerful synths.

FOREVER EP is his debut release, but this soundboy has more than 15 years bass bizz
under his belt, being a member of the notorious drum'n bass veterans SOLID FRAME.

His original comes with such a wide sound, trippy sparkling effects, reverbed guitars & longing voices from outer space, pushed by a pitchdown roller of a dubstep beat. Deep & beautiful.

And the following mixes just appear in the order of a homogene and narrative line by listening to all of them, but i can tell you, they are all epic, each one a favourite:

We wanted them as remix artists for a long time, as we simply love their sounds & nature, and it was a huge pleasure to recieve an off-beat monster breakbeat remix from UK badboys BEN & LEX: big bad sounds, and a heavy bassline creeping in your ear and never let you go again.

Some tasty tricks from our very own HANUMAN TRIBE, who twisted a hevyweight highscale calories inside-out maki: comes as a breaks mix, turns into dubstep madness, and back and forward again.

We return to the spacy atmopsheres, this time topped by propulsive techy sounds from SKETI,
who made some serious riots in the breaks scene with his latest releases, and also this one is pure blistering breaks with a festival edge.

And last but not least HANUMAN TRIBE rescued the catchy synthline from an almost forgotten older banger, which one even the STANTON WARRIORS have been shaking their heads to, and interwaved it with the FOREVER sound, to give another yummi FREEBIE to the people!

Now and FOREVER. Amen.

Also don’t forget to check out the LIMITED AUDIO-FASHION package now available. Order your 'FOREVER' t-shirts / tank top, and the whole release on black USB bracelets via Riot Riot homepage! www.riotriotrecords.com

Freerange Djs 'Party Killer / Body Switch' OUT NOW!!!


Freerange Djs 'Party Killer / Body Switch' [APEM030] by apemusic


We at Ape Towers have been looking forward to this release for quite some time and are very excited to be able to bring it to you now, much like a kiddie in a sweet shop, a wasp in a jam factory, a virgin in a brothel, a pig in. well, you get the idea

For the first time in ages we have a release that is so strong, so damn badbwoy that it is here in all its original glory, no remixes, no nothing, just 2 original tunes in the tradition of a proper AA side release. All Party Killer, No filler!!

The Freerange Djs having been carving themsleves a well deserved place with the best of the best of the breaks 'n' bass scene in the last year with their first big release 'Back to the Old Jack' in the box of all the biggest Djs and spending a total of 10 Months in the Beatport breaks 100!!

And If you have seen the troublesome trio live then you will know what all the fuss is about!

This new double header is not an 'A' & a 'B' side but 2 tunes of equal might and measure that we felt would be a shame not to release all on their own as a AA release.

'Party Killer' is already Tune of The Month is Mixmag and 'Body Switch' has been getting even stronger reactions than 'Party Killer' every time it's been dropped!

No need to desribe them really, they are certified bangers and we hope you like.

Support from NAPT, Hyper, Freestylers, Peo de Pitte, Pyramid, Ctrl-z, Lady Waks, Anna Kiss and a truck load more!


Freerange Djs 'Party Killer'

Though not a household name yet, the trio continue to raise their game and are well on their way, further cementing their names as future stars with this absolute stomper.

The bassline is, for lack of a better word, really squidgy. The funky drums feature some radical, quirky programming.

The structure takes some unexpected but welcome detours. It’s a great big grease ball and we love it.

601 'Baddies EP' [APE Music] OUT NOW

 601 'Baddies EP' [APE Music] OUT NOW

601 'I Can't Take It / Whoop' [APEM0 by apemusic


Oh my days, Look out Mother The Baddies are coming!!!!

601 have been making some serious waves this year, especially in the 140 jungly sound which they are feeling. With their awesome 'White Off' EP and remix of Lethalness for Ape, a simply MASSIVE Ep on Aquasky's legendary Passenger imprint plus more yummy treats still to come the 601 bays are clearly on a misson.

We at Ape Towers are very pleased to present the first part of a series of releases by 601 called 'Baddies'.

For your pleasure here is Part 1.

First up is 'Can't Take It' which put simply has been the highlight of many a DJ set for the early part of this year. It's a whopping great big behemoth of a 140 jungle badboy of a tune.

Starting with an epic Reese bass intro, glitchy freaky female vocals build the old pant wetting suspense till you quite literally 'Cant Take it anymore' and drops into mad massive jungly drums, 808s and subdrops that will make you spill your guts. This is pure dancefloor action and no mistake.

Next up is a AA side of the highest calibre! No B side fillers round here I'll have you know.

Whoop! does exactly what the title suggests. It's a no messing party killer packed full of juicy old skool garage pops and gnarly basslines rude enough to make anyone blush.

Can I get a 'Whoop Whoop'

Freear & Ekaj 'Gizmo Stomp' Part 1 [APEM027]


Buy from Beatport

After the awesome release from Lethalness we have decided to bring you something a bit different for our next effort.

We bring you newcomers to the Ape fam, all the way from oop norf, the awesome Freear & Ekaj and their epic slice of dancefloor dubstep, 'Gizmo Stomp'

The northern monkeys have given us a proper festival slaying chunk of dubstep goodness with a sweeeet reggae infused vibe courtesy of vocals from A. Y D'Afrique.

We have gone in hard on the remixes for this as we love this tune...

First up we have Manchesters freekin bad boys of bass, Snareophobe who have turned in what can only be described as a pant-wettingly heavy remix that has already been getting a heavy caning by the stadium destroyer that is Bassnectar. If you don't screwface to this then you must have had more botox than Joan Rivers!!! (For all you young uns, look her up)

Our favourite Ape fam-a-lam massive the Freerange Djs have blessed us too with an absolute monster of a remix, stepping up to drumstep tempo that is no holds barred, full on fodder for the ravers on the floor. All lighter crew!!

Rounding off the release in a slightly more chilled but equally brilliant way is another Ape fave, Bristols own Jinx in Dub who has taken the original firmly into dubbier territory and then halfway through flips it into a wicked breakbeat roller!!

Already skankin its way around the world, Gizmo Stomp & its remixes has found success on the dancefloor from San Francisco to St. Helens gaining support from some major players already from Rico Tubbs to Bassnectar to Calvertron!

This release is not to be missed on any account!!!

Keep your eyes peeled for the Remix EP promo coming your way very soon with some tip top global all star breaks and house mixes from Manchester to the Burning Man.

Dj Prosper & Old Skool Nemo Vs Benjamin Vial 'Bad Bwoys' [APEM026] by apemusic

BUY ME NOW - exclusive to Beatport

At Ape Towers we like to flex our love muscle every now and again and shake it at the pretty young thing that is musical variety and for our new release thats exactly what we have done, bringing you a mix of house, breaks, warehouse and bass music vibes!

We are proud to welcome back our old friend from across the channel, Mr Benjamin Vial and this time he's enlisted the help of fellow fran├žais chums Dj Prosper, Old Skool Nemo & Mc Runigga.

The French bad men have collaborated to bring you a jackin' warehouse edged tune featuring bad boy raggamuffin vocal snippets from the man like Mc Runigga.

On the first remix we have fellow Frenchmen The Projectiles who have turned in a frickin awesome Stantons-esque breaksy B-boy bubbler!

Going down a much grimier electro housey route original artist Dj Prosper turns in a remix himself alongside compadre Adam Polo this time featuring much fuller version of Mc Runigga's wicked vocal.

SOL8 return to Ape with a heavy breaks remix as only they know how. Expect dirty bass, screaming synths and dancefloor mayhem!

To round the package off, the one and only Terry Hooligan from the mighty Atomic Hooligan gives us a taste of his BASS=WIN flava with a proper bass music twist up of the original.

As generous as ever at Ape Towers, we have a FREE, yes, free remix to give away to accompany this release.

The man like Udy, head honcho at Kiss My Bass records does what he does best and gives us a big slab of awesome wobbly electro house party action!!

Lethalness ft Don Spider ‘Sensimina / 601 Remix)’ [APEM025]


Lethalness ft Don Spider 'Sensimina / 601 Remix' [APEM025] by apemusic


Continuing our kick ass start to 2011, APE Music is proud to bring you a massive party starter from the awesome Lethalness.

'Sensimina' features the wicked dubwise vibed vocals from Don Spider and is a full slab of party breakbeat action and no mistake. Big drums, Big bass, and a wicked breakdown... what more do you need to get your party started right?

On the flip we have Ape fam favourites 601 flipping it on its head and taking us deep... deep into the land of proper ruffneck 140 jungle bizzness.

Big reeses and distorted amens are the order of the day here ladies and gentlemen. Proper heads down action for the raving crew!

DJ Feedback

General Midi : Heavy!
Aquasky : Its all about the amen for me
Pyramid : Loving both tracks, but the ol jungle vibes from 601 just pips it for me, as i feel the vocal works better with the 140 jungle roller tempo. Big tings,would defo play them both out
Jay Cunning : This is rather tasty!
Lady Waks : Good Stuff
Afghan Headspin : BIG TUNES!!!!! APE, what a label, slowly but surely sliding up the greasy poll to the top slot!

Nikki Elise 'That’s as exciting as when i first heard rave about 15 years ago! lovin it'
Ross Allen (Ministry of Sound ) ‘like the samples and vibe of the original.’

Ben & Lex return to Functional with a firing slice of party rocking Breakbeat-Dubstep-Reggae.

From opening the main stage at the Glade festival, winning the 'Best Breaks Dj' and 'Outstanding Contribution To The Breaks Scene' awards at the South West Breaks Awards to their Breakspoll award winning Nuskool Breaks radio show and running their own record label, Ape Music, Ben & Lex could well be the busiest boys in breaks!

Their distinctive brand of bass heavy breaks and dubstep have secured them plays on Radio 1, Ministry of Sound FM, Galaxy FM ,Kiss FM etc, as well as DJ support from all the scenes biggest players and featured on Freq Nasty Breakspoll compilation.

Ben & Lex are true purveyors of bass heavy broken beats; equally at home with a rolling break, half time dubstep and dance hall reggae, always seamlessness blended for our aural delectation. 'Ruffnecks' manages to capture all these elements perfectly, peppered with rousing snatches of ragga vocals, tight rolling percussion, dance hall piano stabs and more squelchy sub then you can shake a stick at. 100% skanking reggae vibes on this dubstep flavoured party beaks number.

With 2 acclaimed albums on Botchit & Scarper under their belts,"Mouth watering beats from the hottest talent around!" The Ticket, Daily Mirror; The dynamic Watford duo Atomic Hooligan are well established as dance music standard setters. AH have graced the FRONT covers of DJ and IDJ magazines, performed live with their 9 piece band at Fabric, officially remixed Underworld. AH turn in a 4/4 tropical broken beat re working, stripping things back on this high octane percus sive workout with hand claps a plenty, rave horns, ragga vocals and truck loads of dirty low end for a tight little funking bum wiggler.

Jinx a.k.a Jinx In Dub has released on Against The Grain, Burrito, Sunday Best, Bassrock and Functional and has worked with Black Canvas and Alien Entertainment and has had huge support all over! Skippy jungle styled breaks are the order of the day here, complete with a heady swathe of atmospherics and an unadulterated, loose yourself in the music breakdown, punctuated by bleeps, ragga vibes, shimmering synth pads on this out and out jungle-tastic raveathon.
