Apegenine Volume 1 is a compilation featuring the works of artists from around the globe who share a sincere love for ambient electronica. Eclectic, sometimes electric and often excentric, Apegenine Volume 1 is a collection of fine international artists’ works in effort to provide quality and adequate mood architecture.
The compilation features the amazing work of the well known and acclaimed artists David Kristian, Xhale and Epoq, rising stars Makunouchi Bento, Julien Neto and Khonnor, and the first ever professional releases by Kaneel, Mv, Xerxes, RS3, Blisaed and Vizion. Ranging from ambient soundscapes to trip-hop electronica and from glitchy hip-hop to progressive noise scapes ; this compilation is the perfect debute release for Apegenine Recordings, it captures the label’s style while foreseeing the future of it.
Limited edition of 400 copies.
