The five brand new Hip Hop tracks on The Apollo Project are the result of a collaboration between Macsen Apollo, creative agency Vinger.nl and producers collective Raven Bros.
During Macsen’s residency at Open Ateliers Zuidoost Artist in Residence (OAZO AIR) in the Amsterdam Bijlmer area, he joined forces with Bijlmer based MC’s Jay Colin, M.D., Mizztamizzo and Ell-I-Dee. Music wizard D. Riba plays his incredibly strange instruments and jazz singer Anne Brattinga provides warm vocals. The beats, recordings and mastering are done by the Ravennest, while vinyl scratches come from American DJ E Train. A verse by MC Jason Dunman completes the EP.

The Apollo Project is available online October 28th, 2014.

The videos, photos and artwork of The Apollo Project were created by video artist Erkka Nissinen, photographer Ilja Meefout and designer Rutger Paulusse, all brought together by Vinger.nl.

Macsen Apollo is proud to release his 5-song EP “Matters of the Heart”.

Macsen Apollo, out of Oakland, California has made a name for himself through his long-time rap career. As part of the V.E.R.A. Clique the MC has released two group albums to date (“Very Essence of Real Artists” & “Fresh out the box”) and is releasing his first solo effort “Matters of the Heart” on July 06th 2011. He has worked with well-known artists such as D’ Wayne Wiggins of Tony Toni Tone, Joe Scudda of Justus League, Dahrio Wonder, APlus & Aagee (Compound 7) of the Hieroglyphics and Souls of Mischief and many more, and has earned respect for his outstanding drive and unique style.

“Matters of the Heart” is about Life and Love, about Trust and Betrayal. It is about those kind of relationships we all have experienced at one point in life.

Starting with the Aagee (Compund 7) produced track “Around the world” Macsen Apollo takes you on a journey, an emotional one, so real that you can relate to each and every line: “We can go around the world girl, just for one night”, a song about the admiration you can feel for a person when you first meet, whose company you want to enjoy for a short enough time to leave them with untarnished memories. Very different from “Like this”, a love story, about a connection so strong that it can take you to the moon and back. Yet producer Daniel J kept the sounds light for this to be a joint you can vibe out to in the sunshine.

After the love story, just like in real life, come the “Problems” which is a song about heartache, the pain you feel when you loose a woman you love, about the mistakes that lead to this loss and how it makes you feel in the end. About realizing mistakes you made when it’s too late, and how you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. And a lot of times problems lead to “Heartbreaks”, which is Macsen Apollo’s true story of betrayal and hurt. The lies a woman told which eventually had to come to light and led to a dramatic break-up. Arranged beautifully by Kev Choice and accompanied by cuts from DJ Quest.

The EP is closed by “City Girl”, which is a tale of friendship and admiration, the fragile kind of love that feels like a crush, the one you want so bad but just can’t be because of the circumstances you are in.

In the end Macsen Apollo proves to be a real Emcee, a real person who is not afraid to share his life, his feelings and his experiences with anyone who wants to listen. “All Rap, No Gimmicks”.

“Matters of the Heart” is being released digitally on July 06th and can be purchased via iTunes and fully previewed at Bandcamp.

Videos for the songs “Heartbreaks” and “Like this” can be watched at www.MacsenApollo.com.
