Apartment 27 Phase 3

We’ve reached our third year as a record label and I honestly didn’t think this crazy idea was actually going to last one. David Frankel and I (Pat Weston) had a goal for the first two years which was, cultivate as much quality music as we can from our artists to show the world that we not only have a range of musical genres but that the new world is about fusing these genres together. Shaun Allens’, “No Mans Land” taking elements from pop, rock, metal, RnB and spinning it all into hard hitting, conscious rap. J.Lynn always determined to blow our minds with new music every time he comes into the studio. David Frankel taking his raw, musical talent and combining it with his unique ear for both the new and old tones, instruments, and production techniques. Go back and listen to my very first single from Apt27 “This Kid is Screwed” then listen to “Voices” and see how far David has come in his ability to mix and master music like industry pros, and he does it all on a six year old laptop without any plug-ins. We need to get this man a new computer. Any who, I wanted to express my gratitude to not only these three wonderful gentlemen but every single person who has given us their blessings. Including our parents, lovers, friends, and even our enemies (They give us a reason to prove them wrong.)

For me the past six years since leaving college has been nothing but hard, humbling, in some cases embarrassing, and eye-opening. I never moved here with any intention of making it over night. My college courses shoved foreshadowing disappointment down my throat so frequently that I wasn’t surprised when I hit those lows. Doesn’t make them any easier unfortunately but at least I saw them coming. Sometimes I feel as though I’m being dragged along by Apt27 and other days I feel like I’m leading the charge into the darkness of uncertainty.

For us “Phase 3” is simple, bring in people to run our business. We have the products, we’ve established a brand (not that it’s above changing) and now it comes down to sharing it with the world in the most effective ways possible. We want you. In fact, if we could, we would involve everyone in the world because Apartment 27 has never just been about music or entertainment (though, those are our products) it has been about working hard, being progressive with forward thinking, having a good time, and most importantly not giving up.

Never stop making music.

-Pat

David Frankel - "Say Anything" Music Video

Howdy - David here! The "Say Anything" music video is officially out, and I couldn't be more excited about it! There were a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that went into making this. Although it was a long process, it was a labor of love, and I believe that the love put into making it is shown in the finished product. This was a fun experiment in taking footage that we originally had an idea for, changing and shooting additional footage when various factors lead to us not being able to execute the initial plan, and finding new connections and meanings to tell a story whilst editing. The end result is what you see, and I'm thrilled to be able to share it with you all! Hope you enjoy!
Special thanks to A.J. Fleuridas, Kristin Goforth, and Pat Weston for helping make this video!

This Kid is Screwed

"It was written around the same time I was recording my EP "Somewhere in Between," but I couldn't get the sound right until after I moved away. So This Kid is Screwed become the actual representation of "Somewhere in Between." Being between my first ep and my new project. It's a bit of my old sound with a hint of what's to come." ~Pat Weston

Filler Noise To Fill the Void.

It’s reflecting on the past, and questioning the future.

It’s the sounds to help you cope with your situation, and the buzzing that blocks it all out.

It’s the thoughts that make you aware, and the commotion that helps you forget.

It’s the roar of a yes, and the cacophony of no.

It’s finding peace, and being lost in chaos.

It’s there for you. It’s here to help you feel. It’s there to help you make sense of life. It’s here for you to enjoy.

It’s filler noise to fill the void.

Fashion Meets Music

Hey! Pat Weston here, so this past weekend (March 25th 2017) we had our first live Apartment 27 showcase! It was brought to or attention less than two weeks before it happened which loaded those twelve days with more stress than originally intended but after our rehearsal I knew we were ready. I'm known as the worrier here so trust me when I say I never really had anything to be nervous about. Balance opened the show building energy from his set which he handed over to me! After I played J.Lynn hopped on the mic and performed his first single "Killin it" and his next single, "Summertime," so if you weren't there you didn't get a sneak peak. Then it was Shaun Allens turn. Plenty of people in LA have heard this man before but nothing like this. It was a fantastic opportunity. The guys at "One World Peace" and "Fashion Meets Music" have invited us back to do this showcase again so keep an eye out! New music? Yes. We'll always do something extra special for each show so come on out!
