Juliet Harding, Ben Peters and Raiven Hansmann formed Goodluck in late 2008. With influences ranging from St Germain, Morcheeba and Faithless their unique approach to dance music has molded their sound into a blend of live instrumentation, delicious dance grooves and the sultriest of vocals. They have toured at numerous festivals around South Africa, including opening for Goldfish. Check out their track “Sweet Janine.”

Difficulty of Music:
Apex Vibe applies very catchy verses along with smooth transitioning into their chorus and solos. The difficulty in the verses is fairly simple while still raising the bar a bit with the transitions and solos.
Comparisons to Other Artists:
Apex Vibe would be most compared to Sublime and 311, with a touch of The Roots within their beats.
The lyrics used in this album are very up beat and positive, making it nearly impossible not to sing along.
Overall Rating (out of 10):
I would give Rhythm Music an 8 out of 10.
This album is very well constructed but lacking in the track list given the fact that there are only four songs on the entire album. From their perspective it is a decent idea to focus on making four very well written tracks rather than having a 10 or 15 track album and only have a few actually good songs. However plans for a full album are in the works and production is set to start soon. More info about the new full album will be updated as we receive it.
