Apparat Helms Latest Resident Advisor Mix
Berlin-based DJ/producer/musician Apparat (a.k.a. Sascha Ring) has composed the latest mix for Resident Advisor's podcast series, an effort he says will mark a shift in his outlook on life and music. Although the DJ set draws inspiration from downtempo and "depressing sounds," like The Cure, Apparat told RA that he'll "be a happy and optimistic person from now on. Forever." His podcast incorporates what the producer called "good mood music" from the likes of Todd Terje and Pional, the latter of which collaborated with Spanish producer John Talabot on his debut album, Fin. According to the interview with Apparat, the artist's interest in sunnier vibes was spurred by the experience of playing a show with John Talabot.
