LEVEL 1 - THE APX (LIVE) Band on stage at midnight.
Huffington Post says "The APX drops funk that goes beyond good and hits excellent." Legendary musician Teddy Riley calls the group "Incredible!", Kiss 104 FM Atlanta says "The APX is keeping REAL funk alive!", and Creative Loafing describes their music as "Saturated in the funk... while still blazing trails of their own design!"
Some groups come together after a period of planning, but sometimes things happen organically. Dee Rhodes and Erika Rhodes of The APX are a fresh example of the latter. Both musicians had been making music on their own for years prior. Dee (who is of Liberian heritage) grew up in Atlanta as a jazz prodigy performing in front of the likes of Stevie Wonder and Usher.
He has also been featured performing on national shows like Being Mary Jane (with Gabrielle Union) and Single Ladies (with Lisaraye). Meanwhile, Erika, born and raised in Detroit, was a touring national vocalist who has sang in front of the likes of Barack Obama, Diana Ross, Jennifer Lopez, Mark Anthony, Rod Stewart, Kid Rock and many more. Seeing that they shared many mutual friends, Dee eventually reached out to Erika on Facebook in 2013. Their paths went on to cross a few times afterwards and when they kept running in to each other in the musically inspiring city of Atlanta, they realized it was time to team up.
In 2016, The APX independently introduce their unique blend of electro-funk to an exponentially growing global audience and took the internet by storm with their unique cover/remixes. Harnessing the power of social media, they grew their following to a combined total of over 50,000 “funk-botz” who agree with their message to keep the funk alive. They managed to capture the eye of major players like Nick Cannon, Jody Watley, Quest Love and many more.
With the growing demand, they were able to release their first studio project Electrik Funk,with the funky single “Right On Time” to follow on the Electrik Funk (Deluxe Edition). The group has also enjoyed success on other record labels such as Island Records (PNAU Chameleon Remix) etcetc records, Tokyo Dawn Records and Sleepers Records. The Atlanta lovebirds have also developed a highly energetic live show opening for the likes of Robert Glasper, Dam Funk, Kindred The Family Soul and more.
Things are still full steam ahead for the duo, as they plan to release another studio project "The Amplified Experiment" in June of 2019 + we truly can't wait to welcome them to The South London Soul Train Live Stage.
Truly Psyched for this!!!
