SOME HISTORY::

Simply put, Super Ape is a band of producers.

Featuring members of two other bands / Bullship (Electric Mountain) & Dirty Drummer (Ropeadope), originally pulled together by Scott Slagle (Asylum Digital Recording Studios) to back a vocalist on some session work & various live dates. Each of us being long-time friends & having worked together on various projects in the past, it was an easy decision to continue working together after that project was completed. Dirty said it best, “It’s been like a musicians wet dream…” – The 5 of us just clicked & Super Ape was born.

Through live instrumention & sample programming, Super Ape recklessly combines elements of sound from dub to jazz to rock, creating exciting soundscapes that successfully blend genres & have helped to gain fans around the world.

I am SUPER APE.

RECORDINGS::

We have just completed our second high octane, explosive sounding, 7″ single “Shakedown” b/w “Tokyo”. Whatchoutnah. Available 04.20.10 thru Electric Mountain.

“Ape Shit b/w “Peoples In the Mist” was released digitally & on limited 7″ vinyl thru Electric Mountain. This release draws inspiration from our wide range of musical influences (using both samples & live instrumentation) tied together by aggressive production. Super Ape is currently promoting these limited edition 7″ releases with strategic live dates.

We are also currently compiling a set of remixes for release and Scott is working on an EP w/ DJ Vadim & Preach Jacobs (BBE). Dirty Drummer, our BADDASS drummer, just finished the “Chase the Barber EP”. Four big, face melting, dancefloor killin’, go smack somebody tracks all together on one piece of 7″ wax. Available 04.20.10 thru Electric Mountain.
