APEIRON EP - Stereofox Label

The context for the creation of the EP stems from the desire to retrospectively analyse and understand my inner and outer struggle, as a human, from my individual perspective. “Apeiron” is an abstract, void, something that cannot be described according to the Ancient Greek pessimistic belief for death (Nothingness). I strive to reconcile this idea of “the indescribable” with the apparent ever persistent laws of “change”.

THE RELEASE

Release Schedule: March 12th - PINK DELOREAN
April 9th - UNDER/GONE
April 30th - APEIRON EP (focus on HELLO w/ Preyah)
Genres: R&B / Soul

Stereofox Records welcomes one of Bulgaria’s most prominent & outstanding vocal talents, C-MO, for his debut solo EP.

APEIRON (meaning “void”) explores the deeper & darker side of r&b, C-MO’s creative freedom, introspective storytelling, as well as existential topics like the concept of “nothingness”.

The singer elaborates, “Most of the recording sessions were done in a home setting, reflecting the confidential and confessional nature of the music. It’s more or less a challenge to myself, as a performer and first time producer, to create with reckless abandon, set individual authentic goals and invest in them.”

The opening song “PINK DELOREAN” perfectly sets the tone of the project with its spacey synths, lush vocals, and trappy drums. After that come the upbeat/punchy “HELLO” – the focus track of the EP, featuring Bulgarian pop/soul icon Preyah with her honey vocals, followed by the more light-hearted 2nd single “UNDER/GONE” paying tribute to summer & its carefree times.

APEIRON finishes with the hip-hop/soul gem “BROKEN VINYL” and the romantic ballad “SPEND ME” – all offering an exquisite & varied listening experience, aiming to keep you engaged & surprised throughout the 5 tunes.

C-MO adds, “Creating this EP, I think I achieved what I set out to do – learn more and get acquainted with all of the phases in the creation of a piece of music. On the way I found peace in the total authority and creative freedom an artist possesses in the moment of writing and creating music, be that in a seclusive or collaborative environment.”

APEIRON EP also features London singer Lili (supported on Ones To Watch), guitarist Peyotoff (worked with emawk), multi-instrumentalist TromBobby (Frank Nitt, Brianna Castro, Jermaine Holmes), Bulgarian drummer RADO & producer Denis Popstoev.
