Apex Ten is a psych/space/stoner rock instrumental power trio formed in 2021 in Liège, Belgium by Alexis Radelet (drums), Brad Masaya (bass) and Benoît Velez (guitar). The group also uses instruments such as a lapsteel, a synth, a theremin,… Their productions and performances are centered on improvisation, offering an ephemeral and unique side. Their style is recognizable by the hovering, psychedelic side and is reinforced by layers of synth and/or theremin. The powerful and hypnotic strike of the drummer is accentuated by the bass playing and the well-marked “fuzz” spirit of the guitarist. Everything gradually accompanies us in a “sound trip” specific to the group.
This album was recorded in Sprimont (Belgium) at the Koko studio in December 2021 by Simon Lambert and Laurent Eyen. It was again mixed and mastered by Simon Lambert who had also mixed »First Session« and »The Fourth Passenger«.
»Aashray« is essentially composed of jams/improvisations. You will also be able to hear Hindu sounds, hence its name. With this album, Apex Ten offers a more space rock, psychedelic style than their first album: »First Session«. There are also more accomplished jams and the cohesion between the three musicians is greatly strengthened.
Apex Ten is:
Alexis Radelet – Drums
Brad Masaya – Bass, Synth, Theremin, Cithare, Voices
Benoît Velez – Guitar, Theremin
