Even More Music of the Planet of the Apes
As promised in the previous post, here is one more collection of sounds inspired by Planet of the Apes. Where the last collection had a hard rock slant, this one looks to areas like hip-hop and electronic music which were slower to embrace the Apes. Much of this is instrumental music, some of it only using an Apes reference for the song title, some using samples from the films. There are tracks from Japanese superfans Cornelius and Nigo, and from a Planet of the Apes hip-hop concept album by Suave the Ape. Finland’s Ceebrolistics take things a step further in a Christian-based hip-hop attack on the theory of evolution (more recently, Destiny Lab have used a similar strategy, even dressing as apes to make their point, but aren’t included here). A lot of this music was also created by musicians without any commercial considerations and made available freely online.
As is always the case, there is no copyright infringement intended in the posting of this collection, merely the sharing of good music among that part of the human population of this planet who enjoy music and Planet of the Apes. Any requests to remove content will be respected.
