Apidae is the production project of London-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Greg Hummell. Equally influenced by the textures and soundscapes of post-rock and grooves of downtempo and chillwave, Apidae mix acoustic and electronic sounds and instrumentation to create a blend of the organic and synthetic likened to artists like Radiohead, Four Tet, Caribou, & Bonobo.
Taking its name from the scientific term for a family of bee species, Apidae grew from humble beginnings as a solo production endeavour into a collaborative venture, recording and performing with a rotating family of musicians, and relocating from its birthplace of Kent to London.
Apidae signed to Stockholm-based independent label Dumont Dumont to issue its first official release: the debut single “Turning Tides”. Featuring distinctive instrumentation (including Hang drum, analogue synthesis and Fender Rhodes Piano) and falsetto vocals from producer and songwriter Drew JH York, the single premiered on the Line of Best Fit, where it was praised for it’s “hypnotic forward thinking production, and exotic pitched percussion”, and described as “a gorgeous confluence of live instrumentation and electronically guided pulses” by Q Magazine.
Introspective Indie-pop single "Still Life" follows; the first cut from upcoming Everything Is Alright EP releasing February 2020
