Rising producer Apollo Xo just released a brand new club-ready single with a peculiar twist.
Today we welcome Apollo Xo to the blog for the first time with the release of his new single “Funktion”. The Chicago party-scene icon tapped singer-songwriter Drew for a spicy collaboration that expertly shows his versatility as a producer.
Known for his wide range of flips that cover R&B, hip hop, and house, Apollo Xo taps all of his major influences on “Funktion”. Drew’s vocals intermix with an addicting bassline on the first half of the G-House track. Around the two minute mark, the track morphs around Drew’s energetic topline into a heavy-hitting trap beat before the final drop.
“Funktion”‘s simplicity gives intelligible nods to the genre’s origin and place in Chicago history. Apollo Xo’s reinvigorates the track for today’s crowd with its bass-driven theme, giving the track remarkable late night strength.
