Renowned producer Apollo Brown releases The Reset Instrumentals today. The smooth, soulful instrumentals allow listeners to get a cleaner listen to the work of Apollo Brown. There is little doubt that fans will use the tracks to create their own remixes and mash-ups using their favorite rappers’ acapellas. Even without vocals, The Reset Instrumentals have enough catchy hooks and head-nodding riffs to warrant being a stand-alone album.
Tracks like “Seasons” and “Balance” showcase the producer’s ability to show his softer side. “Seasons” features disparate harmonies and an occasional sampled “what you want me to do” vocal over melancholy guitar picking that proves Apollo Brown can flawlessly blend genre’s of soul and hip-hop. “Real Detroit” and “Streets Won’t Let Me Chill” are still influenced by soul, but have much sharper, heavier beats. It’s clear Apollo Brown has a lot of versatility as a producer.
Apollo Brown is not finished for 2010; on the contrary, he will be involved with at least two more collaborations by the end of the year. These collaborations include but are not limited to the album Brown Study as half of the group UPS with Boog Brown, and the long-awaited Gas Mask LP as one-third of The Left with DJ SoKo and MC Journalist 103.
