Apex Sound is the trance alias of the Netherlands based producer and DJ Jordy D. He came into contact with trance and hard dance music during his high school period, mainly through listening to livesets of Dutch dance festivals.
When visiting these festivals in his early 20’s, he knew he wanted to do something similar as the artists he saw performing there. So he decided to take up the challenge to become active into music himself: First focussed on making hard dance DJ live-sets and festival warm-up sets, while also moving slowly to become a producer.
Not having any theoretical musical knowledge up untill that point, he worked long hours to create a sound of his own. Learning step by step. Big inspirations being tracks from the likes of Gareth Emery, Orjan Nilsen and Markus Schulz, but also more EDM oriënted trance music from producers like Omnia. One of his favorite all-time classics being Paul van Dyk’s ‘For an Angel’.
His style ranges from progressive to full-on trance, while also incorporiting influences from other EDM genres into much of his tracks. He always tries to find inspiration from these other EDM genres to make something new in trance. After producing for over 3 years, he is now ready to get his tracks out there! Starting of with a release together with label owner Calgar C
