The 4-track EP begins with “Witch,” Apashe’s collaboration with Ukrainian rapper and musician, Alina Pash. The colossal offering showcases dark and cinematic soundscapes amid a spine-tingling top line that then explodes with a raw, high-octane bass drop.
Apashe told us that “It has always been a dream of mine to perform with an orchestra. While shows weren’t possible during the pandemic, we prepared a livestream with the FILMHarmonique Orchestra in Montreal and I absolutely wanted to have the orchestra perform new songs I was writing. I loved the result so I decided to shape my next EP around the recordings of that livestream. While doing this I wanted to resample those pure/beautiful recordings and almost destroy them into these dark songs I had written mid-pandemic. This led to the title ‘I Killed The Orchestra’. It’s a mixture of beauty and violence. That’s what Covid actually meant to me in a way.“
