Translated from Italian For lovers of funk jazz contamination from Parliament or Galliano, this New Future by New Yorkers is not to be missed.
“Simply said, New Future had us bouncing and barking in tandem and in swift time as Rhythm and Rhyme sets things off. Resonance clad rhythms and dub spurted inserts hits ears first, the rhythmic coaxing already in hips before Nevaris A.C strolls in with his ever potent tones. The expected bite and snarl is in his words but this […]
“It’s a great album, one that seems to bring together everything that is cool about the urban underground, both in the sense of its musical genres and in a physical, inner-city sense. For an album forged from the sounds relating to where those genres have been, it is the perfect signpost as to where they […]
NYC-based funk art collective Loud Apartment presents their ‘New Future’ album, the band’s third long-player, produced by legendary bassist / producer Bill Laswell at Orange Music in West Orange, New Jersey.
“Speaking of sick tunes, Brooklyn’s Loud Apartment just released their new LP, New Future, produced by Bill Laswell (Golden Palominos, Material, PiL), who also plays bass on the recording. Funky.”
“Coming out of New York, the music collective Loud Apartment released their new album, New Future, on November 10. Since then, I have been listening to it daily; that’s five days ago for those who are counting.”
Not only is the latest single, Rebellion, built on some reggae grooves and backbeats, although it is much more creatively driven to be merely labelled as a reggae song, the icing on the cake is also that they have invited Garrison Hawk, perhaps best known as a long-term collaborator of Tricky and Sly & Robbie, among other notable artists, […]
Eager rhythms instantly got under the skin, drawing out an instinctive shuffle in feet as the keys of Nevaris A.C. began to work on hips and imagination.
It is difficult to capture the sheer breadth of the band sound with easy generic labels. Can you explain how the sound came together and how it has evolved into what we hear on this album? Nevaris A.C: The sound is built around the drums, bass and vocals more than anything else. Lockatron, Bill Laswell and I recorded […]
I want to listen to this album while doing something proactive. This music makes me want to get up and change – myself and the surroundings. The revolution has to start somewhere so why not with “System Breakdown?”
[Translated from Italian] The lyrical aspect of the work almost seems to invoke an awakening of consciences and the rebirth of the force of aggregation between human beings, a feeling that over time has been increasingly put aside. Guilty. From an instrumental point of view, that of Loud Apartment is a fresh and energetic kaleidoscopic […]
“The album closes with the 9 minute long Dub Enough, so spark up a fat one sit back and let them slowly nail you to the couch with almost Nyabingi style percussion and shakers for the keyboards to float and explore… this will sound mammoth on a proper loud system as the flute helps you […]

Spend any time listening to the lyrics of any song you choose on this latest album by NYC funk fusionaries Loud Apartment and you will realise that they have something to say. Listen to the whole album and you realise that they have a lot to say and across a wide variety of social subjects. And important […]
(Translated from Spanish) System Breakdown is, more than a collection of songs, a compilation of emotions of a universal nature in these times in which unemployment and the urge to sustain not a lifestyle, but life itself, forces us to mix in different contexts and project the different needs of human beings by nature.
“In short, Loud Apartment has taken a massive leap as a band. Every facet of this band has been realigned and reimagined. They’ve found a way to be a band with a message, but also a band continues to creates absolute head bopping anthems. It’s a fine line to walk and this band has found […]
“System Breakdown” refers to the collapse of the systems meant to protect citizens during a time like this. Access to healthcare. Access to a vital financial lifeline after the collapse of the live music industry during the pandemic. The album also takes aim at the incompetence and negligence of the current administration in the first […]
