Back in May, Apashe (John De Buck) and four very special guests took their talents to the extremely popular and ever-growing online League of Legends gaming community, for their Mid-Season Streamathon series for an exclusive live stream event. Riot Games, the team behind League’s magic, raised funds from the multi-day broadcast for COVID-19 relief. Fans can now stream the set in full via Apashe’s YouTube.
“I had so much fun performing live with Wasiu, Kroy & Geoffroy for the League of Legends stream,” Apashe divulged. “Big love to Riot Games for inviting me to their mid-season Streamathon and for letting me play the footage again for all of you! Enjoy Majestic Squad!
Featuring a bevy of stunning live performances, the 15-minute journey through Apashe’s 13-track full-length LP was filmed in a warehouse in Montreal by longtime collaborator Adrian Villagomez. With a full lighting rig and visuals to match, the stream opens with “Lord & Master” paired with live violin (Amélie of Quatuor Esca), transitioning into “Rain” with a stunning vocal performance from KROY. Weaving through “Dead,” viewers are greeted by MTL based Wasiu for “Legend,” and a taste of “Insane,” before diving into the Geoffroy featured “Distance.” Closing with a snippet of album highlight, “Good News,” Apashe ends the stream with fan favorites “Dies Irae” and”‘Majesty,” once again with Wasiu.
His recently released Renaissance LP has been a career-defining record for Apashe, with streams approaching 15,000,000 across platforms, not to mention a list of highly impressive syncs, ranging from Apple TV to EA Sports. With an array of album remixes expected later this year, fans can expect more great things coming from Apashe.
