Last year, Apartel unleashed their debut album Inner Play featuring the singles "Sala Sa Init" and "Is It Hip?" which was nominated as Best Music Video in the MYX Music Awards 2017. The soul-jazz collective fronted by Ely Buendia originally planned to release the album only on vinyl aside from digital platforms. But due to fans' demand, they recently launched a deluxe CD version!

Before the gig in Saguijo, Apartel expressed excitement over the CD's release since they really enjoy bringing back the old but gold sound of the 60s and 70s.
Check in, trip out night once again! Opening the night were Ben & Ben, Farewell Fairweather, and Rob & The Hitmen!
Here's Apartel doing a soundcheck before the launch:
The deluxe CD version of Inner Play contains the brand new track "Overture". It also comes with a second disc containing remixes by Tandems '91, Tarsius, BP Valenzuela, Lustbass, PastaGroove, and CouchLab. Just catch Apartel's gigs to score your own copy!
