Romance is in the air as @Apekofficial spins “Upside Down” featuring @CarlyPaigemusic

APEK featuring CARLY PAIGE, “Upside Down”

It’s been a while since we heard from L.A.-based producer Apek (aka Joshua Gilbert), but he’s back in perhaps a less familiar setting – romantic electropop – with “Upside Down” for Musical Freedom.  Phoenix’s Carly Paige has just the kind of versatile voice to get across both the crazy and deeply in love sides to the song.  “Upside Down” therefore is very dance radio friendly although some remixes could bring it over to the clubbing side of things.  Don’t dismiss this one as electropop-lite.  Combined with the vocal, the sweet-and-soft washes of synths hang up a fine melody and “Upside Down” will promptly get stuck in your head.  Add it to your New Romance playlist using the Spotify link above.

@Spirixmusic lends a bright progressive house spin to “Quicksand” by @Feenixpawl & @APEKofficial

FEENIXPAWL & APEK, “Quicksand” (Spirix remix)

Having the duo of Feenixpawl match creative wits with APEK in itself is a wondrous thing, but with remixes on top of that, it couldn’t get any better variety-wise.  So we have young L.A.-based Spirix stirring the progressive house pot with his remix of “Quicksand”.  It’s a downright pretty song, with a powerful but unbilled vocal which takes it to the next level, and would be a great bookend to Elephante & Bishøp’s “Closer”.  The remix makes the song glisten in everything that is shiny and progressive, adding to the emotional wallop and only reshaping a tad what Feenixpawl and APEK had in mind.  “Quicksand” warrants your attention and you can get it for free at the link above.
