The APX are releasing their highly anticipated self-titled sophomore album Amplified Experiment. Detroit native singer/songwriter Erika Dawn alongside her prodigy multi-talented husband Dee Rhodes are an Atlanta-based electro funk/soul duo collectively known as The APX. Amplified Experiment encores the duo's sound with a 2020 approach, fueled with the influence of the finest traditional '80s and '90s style funk, house, and soul. Including the previously released single "Jupiter", Amplified Experiment includes a completely self-produced and masterfully crafted collection of brand new songs that will make you dance, make love, relax, or all of the above. Amplified Experiment is a breathtaking catalyst, ushered in by Erika Dawn's soul stirring, nostalgic power-house vocals, accompanied by Dee Rhodes's heart-pounding, adrenaline injected, soulful soundtrack. The group enjoyed prior success in 2017 with Electrik Funk Deluxe, the group's introductory album garnering #1 status internationally, and their single "Lose Yourself to the Groove" showcased in the Netflix romantic comedy Nappily Ever After, starring Sanaa Lathan. Amplified Experiment blasts your ears into rhythmic euphoria with a collective of experienced musicians and lyrical contributors, including songwriter Oli J Shaheer (constant contributor to The APX), songwriter D'wight "Skrapp" Reynolds, (Whitney Houston, Usher, Akon) guitarist/bassist/producer Brandon McCrae (Christina Millian, Sevyn Streeter, Lyfe Jennings), trumpeter Lance Powlis (Janelle Monae, Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T), and also features the legendary Zapp Band, chart-topping funk group Mink Slide, and accomplished singer/songwriter Will Gittens. Amplified Experiment also includes loud and proud cameos from the new jack swing creator and Grammy-winning producer, Teddy Riley and the legendary Grammy-winning singer Jody Watley, giving their stamps of praise and approval. "Amplified Experiment is our journey further into the world of funk," says Dee Rhodes, "You'll really get to experience different sides of Erika's vocal abilities while gauging the range of styles our production can go. For the past two years, we have been working very hard on this album and it is really special to us!"
