First of all, if you want hip hop stick to THE LEFT! If you're willing to experiment with reflective soundscapes and contemplative atmospheres then you should give this album a spin.. Apollo Brown is a beats genius and this time he's using well built melodic yet somewhat simple loops to create thoughtful environments for the listener to enjoy. It's so beautifully mellow it can honestly make you feel like you're lying on your back on a warm day watching clouds go by.
Today I finally got a chance to check out Apollo Brown’s new instrumental album, Clouds. Its simply beautiful, seriously. Its filled with solid drums and snares but uses sounds that are very melodic, calm, relaxing, and airy. Its definitely something to ride to and that’s what I did today, got in the car and just let it bump. I found myself thinking deep, “head in the clouds” literally, which was Apollo’s apparent aim if you look at the album cover and title.
This album was well thought out and I was totally engulfed in the various sounds in the productions. Apollo Brown has a real understanding of sounds that provoke thought, reflection, and ponder. Each beat paints a picture filled with waves of emotion.

Apollo decided to get his imovie on for his new album "Clouds". Pretty slick for his first time out on the camcorder! Directed by Apollo Brown. Produced by Apollo Brown. MMG 2011!
Dilla would be proud. His influence is still strong in Detroit hip hop.
