APEX SOUND SASH-AYS INTO 2023
12/4/22

Mike Dean and fellow producer Apex Martin announced their new record label, Apex Sound, last month along with their first signee, SASH. On Friday (12/3), the New York City rapper returned with his six-song EP, Bittersweet, which includes the single, "biscayne." The accompanying visual for the track finds SASH spelling out his intentions to keep his head high as he navigates his blossoming career. 

As noted in the YouTube credits, Dean mixed and mastered the production for Dean's List Productions at Dean’s List House of Hits in Cypress, Texas. 

Martin was instrumental in putting SASH on Dean's radar. As he explained, "After seeing SASH's first music video for ‘Rondo' in 2017, I had a gut feeling I needed to work with him. We connected through a mutual friend. Since then we’ve become friends through working on music together. We’re on a wave right now. The sonics are the best they’ve ever been.” 

Dean added, "Apex kept telling me, 'Check this artist; check that artist. Some are doing well, so I decided to follow his instincts with SASH. I believe we have a winning team." 

Take a trip to "biscayne" with SASH below, while we try to figure out where that actually is. 

MEASURE OF MUSIC RETURNS
12/1/22

Measure of Music—the free global music data and analytics conference and workshop—will return next year.

Curated by Christine Osazuwa, the three-day virtual event takes place from 2/24-26 and fosters innovation and equity with the data sector of the music business. 

This year’s keynote speaker will be Downtown Music Holdings CMO Molly Neuman.

Other speakers include Osazuwa, Amethyst Collab CEO Olivia Shalhoup, RYLTY co-founder/Chief Royalty Officer Andrew Ullah, Chartmetric Business Development Manager Michelle Yuen and Marketing Manager Rutger Rosenborg, plus more.

“I created Measure of Music so participants could get to see more people that look like them on the virtual stage talking about music, tech & data – young people, people of color, women, immigrants, and members of the LGBTQ+ community,” said Osazuwa. “In 2023, we will amplify and expand by featuring new opportunities for enhanced networking and will bring back our virtual career fair which we hope will help those affected by recent unfortunate tech layoffs.”

Measure of Music 2023 is presented by Audiense and SoundCloud, and supported by Chartmetric, jump.global, Luminate, Musiio, The Orchard and TuneCore. The Digilogue, shesaid.so, Queer Capita and Women in Musicare promotional and media partners.
