Devin Hieb is the Denver based electronic artist behind the creation of Apostles. A project which travels up and down the spectrum of moods with a mix of downtempo, dreamy beats and darker, more aggressive atmospheres.
Playing through his 9-track, debut album, ‘Anamnesis’ you’ll hear a lot of trippy fading bass and reverberated stutter effects that make you feel like you’re falling out of control down a kaleidoscope and enjoying it.
The first track we’d like to put on here is a track outside of his EP called ‘Inexorable”. The reason it stuck out is with its brooding, future beats it evokes the imagery of delving deep into a cityscape of grime and corruption not dissimilar to the 2012 remake of Judge Dredd. It has that same sinister, pre-riot energy which keeps you on edge throughout the track. Have a listen below:
The next track is the title track of his album ‘Anamnesis’ which we previously made a Clowdy Staff Pick. It has a very different, chilled vibe with a lulling and smooth tempo. The water shimmers and glistens as you sail down a tranquil stream looking up at the dancing cosmos above. Testament to the vivid, experimental style Apostles has delivered with the album.
