Live Radio Recording – The P Show

Apt One @ September 25th, 2014 ... · No Comments

This past summer I played the almighty P Show with my man DJ Soulist in Paris. Shoutouts to Le Mellotron radio for having me – their studio is in the pilot’s house of a river boat moored on the Seine. Really awesome place to hang out and play some tunes. The recording was just posted. Have a listen. Lots of unreleased goodies.

Live at Hot Mass Pgh

Apt One @ May 6th, 2014 ... · No Comments

Happy to be able to share a live recording of my super late, super deep, super fun set at Hot Mass in Pittsburgh a few months back. This was a truly great and amazing party and I played lots of new Michael The Lion material and old RCMP material.

You may have read that this is one of the country’s best and most unique parties (it’s in a bath-house). And that is not an incorrect assessment.

Additionally, there are other live recordings from recent tour dates in Seattle (Jack at The Eagle) and San Francisco (GoBang at The Stud) and a mixtape by Reed Streets I contributed to up on my Soundcloud.

New Record, New Alter-Ego! Michael The Lion Remix for Robert Lux & Todd Edwards

Apt One @ April 2nd, 2014 ... · No Comments


This is a big record for me for a few reasons – first, it is the debut of my new alter-ego “Michael The Lion,” who you will be hearing a lot more from in the near future. Second, it’s a really great record by a great duo – Robert Lux and Todd Edwards. Third, it is an absolutely devastating remix lineup – Pat Lok and Pittsburgh Track Authority are both shooting stars in their respective lanes. It doesn’t get much better!

The original and the Pat Lok remixes are both free – take a listen, buy a copy and support independent music!

YR019 Vinyl now available worldwide!

Apt One @ March 31st, 2014 ... · No Comments

You may recall a little 13 song compilation called Philadelphia Maneto that I put out last summer – if you liked that, listen in, because this week I’m here to tell you about two spin-off projects that you will probably dig.

The first is a limited edition, silk-screened, hand-numbered vinyl EP featuring the above songs, which you can download for FREE.  If you support independent music, please purchase a 12″!  You can mail order them world-wide from Turntable Lab or the Young Robots discogs store. You can buy them at brick-and-mortar locations in Philadelphia (and at TTL’s flagship in NYC).

Many thanks for your support!  Later this week I will be telling you about another YR release and some West Coast shows I will be playing this weekend!

Kensington Royals Fundraiser

Apt One @ March 14th, 2014 ... · No Comments

royals fundraiser

If you enjoy A) Baseball B) Pizza C) Beer or D) Music, or any Constanza-esque combination of these things, you should probably come to this fundraiser tonight. If you do not enjoy any of these things, you are probably on a terror watchlist.

The Kensington Royals (guys I have been playing baseball with for the better part of a decade) are organizing a fundraiser for spring/summer team equipment and expenses. They decided to share the proceeds to get the baseball team from Kensington High School some cage time.

The event is at Everybody Hits Batting Cages at 5th and Girard in Philly.

Donated beer & food by players as well as Narragansett & Pizza Brain. $20 gets you all you can eat, drink, hit, and dance.

9pm – 11pm
The cages will be running. You can hit until you have a perfect swing or your blisters make you stop. Delicious food and cold beverages will be shared.

11pm – 2am
La Musica.

We will have brand new Royals swag for purchase – hot new t-shirts, fitted hats for preorder – as well as a chance for you to make some loot in the 50/50 raffle.
