Masterface is the music project of Brooklyn-based producer Cedar Apfell. He moved to New York from Seattle with his band of eight years, House On A Hill. After playing a number of dates, the two main songwriters split into separate projects and Masterface was born.
With his newfound freedom Apfell began experimenting with a variety of musical genres, pulling influence from dub reggae, 80’s new-wave, ambient and trance to create Freedom Tower. The resulting effort is an atmospheric electronic album that takes the listener on a trance-like journey through a world of compelling sound.
Apfell collaborated on Freedom Tower with Brooklyn producer/drummer Rory O’Connor. O’Connor has most recently been touring with the increasingly popular Com Truise and is completing his debut solo album for release next year.
If comparison is necessary, Masterface will appeal to fans of Atlas Sound, Animal Collective, Baths, Panda Bear, Air, Boards Of Canada, Four Tet, and James Blake.
Currently, Apfell works as a record producer at his Green Point Alligator Lady Studios and has been busy putting the finishing touches on the new Natureboy record. The follow-up to Freedom Tower is slated for 2012.
