The A.P.X., which stands for “Amplified Experiment” is a billboard charting nostalgic electro funk, soul, boogie & house music duo consisting of Detroit raised singer/songwriter Erika Dawn Rhodes and her husband Atlanta raised musician and producer Dee Rhodes. They have released two full albums including their recent iTunes top 100 charting “Amplified Experiment” which was considered for a Grammy in 2019. The duo has toured internationally with sold out shows in Paris, London, Toronto, Los Angeles, Oakland and more. Currently endorsed by Native Instruments, they write and produce their own records as well as direct and produce their own music videos. Their music has been featured on Netflix, CBS, Buzzfeed, Okay Player and more. The APX has amassed over 600,000 streams (including well over 400,000 for their hit collaboration “Your Touch,” alongside Tariq Nasheed’s band Mink Slide). Their single “Right on Time“ had an exclusive music video premiere on Huffington Post. The APX has changed the zeitgeist by challenging it with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, synth-driven Neo Funk, and electronic boogie. Since their arrival, the pair has amassed over half-a-million streams, achieved Grammy consideration for their sophomore album “Amplified Experiment,” headlined sold out shows worldwide, and toured with artists including Dâm-Funk, Kindred the Family Soul, Robert Glasper, Leikeli47, NoName and more. Including the Rene & Angela inspired single “Jupiter,” Amplified Experiment includes a completely self-produced and masterfully crafted collection of songs that will make you dance, make love, relax or all of the above. Amplified Experiment is a breath taking catalyst, ushered in by Erika Dawn's soul stirring, nostalgic powerhouse vocals, accompanied by Dee Rhodes' heart-pounding, adrenaline injected, soulful soundtrack.
With the start of their new label House of Funk, The APX continue to encore their sound with a 2020 approach, fueled with the influence of the finest traditional 80's & 90's styled funk, house, & soul
