“Revenge of the Orchestra” is a futuristic mix of industrial synths, pounding rhythms and brooding brass and strings, with Magugu’s acerbic flow elevating Apashe’s singular production style to heart-stopping heights. “Revenge is a must,”intonates Magugu in his distinctive “pidgin rap” style over Apashe’s high-octane classical arrangements performed by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and hard-hitting beats.
The track comes with an ominous music video, featuring Apashe sitting in a smoke-filled room, surrounded by the broken remains of a brass orchestra before the instruments come to life, congeal together and transform into a terrifying monster. The visuals are directed by Adrian Villagomez, who recently collaborated with Apashe on the stunning cinematic video for “Gasoline” and has also worked with the likes of Killer Mike and Denzel Curry.
“Revenge of the Orchestra” 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 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 his new Brass Orchestra.
A high-octane collaboration between two distinctive artists, “Revenge of the Orchestra” erupts in a blaze of true creative brilliance. An electrifying and totally unique single from Apashe and Magugu.
