Asten Harris is APEX, a Los Angeles-based producer on the rise. The name APEX comes from Asten Harris’ inspiration to be the best and reach his highest potential.
Born in Houston, TX, Apex’s music career started when he was creating album artwork, which led him to creating and producing beats on the side. In 2012, as just a sophomore in high school, a friend suggested that he focus solely on the music. Apex worked with local artists, dropping instrumental beat tapes on Soundcloud when he received a phone call from Epic Records. Through all this, he gained the attraction of Mike Dean which later brought him to Warner Music Group.
Over the past few years, Apex has worked with notable artists such as Kanye West, Gucci Mane, and Ty Dolla $ign to name a few.
Apex puts a lot of pride into collaborating, but these days he is honing in on his sound while simultaneously building his production label called Apex Sound. Apex describes his sound as new age- modern, with an industrial vibe. His music is inspired by his current emotional state and how he is feeling at that moment in time or what he is going through, whether it be good or bad, which he incorporates into his music and turns into a hit beat.
