Apparat Preps Monster DJ-Kicks Mix

Oval, Autechre, Thom Yorke, Tour Tet and numerous others….


By Blurt Staff


Apparat – aka Sasha Ring – takes a little time out from his
busy schedule of late (which has included three
albums on the Shitkatapult label and the collaborative full lengths with Ellen
Allien and Modeselektor as Moderat on
Bpitch Control) in order to program what just may be the mother of all DJ-Kicks titles from !K7. It includes
tracks from Oval, Autechre, Thom Yorke, Tour Tet and others, as well as a pair
of exclusive Apparat tunes and an unreleased Telfon Tel Aviv cut. The full
tracklisting is below and it speaks for itself.


“I didn’t want to make this kind of “smart” mix,
that’s eclectic and sounds like it’s done “on purpose;” but I need to do
different things to keep myself motivated,” Ring explained, in a statement. “At first I wanted to
make a collection of influences, all kinds of old songs, but then sometimes with
those mixes it’s hard to keep some kind of flow and they’re just not very easy
to listen to, so I ended up using good new music; music that almost gave me
hope that there’s more out there than boring minimal techno.


“The mix isn’t that balanced when
it comes to melody I guess. There’s a lot of
sweetness on there, but it is dark and mysterious at points. I guess the
bittersweet-ness has long been kind of my thing and with this mix I was just
trying to spice it up a bit.”


It’ll be in stores Oct. 26.
