5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional set 29 Oct 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
A highly anticipated edition to the apparat collection has arrived, here, in the form of a dj mix. As a producer, their are few as talented and original as Sascha Ring (a.k.a Apparat), whose dark, melodic, yet gritty electronic sound has become incresingly orchestral over the last 5 years.

As a dj, Apparat has also proven his worth. This set is extremely intelligent. somehow, he fits 24 tracks into a single 70-80 minute set, something very few djs attempt. Most tracks last under 4 minutes, yet flow effortlessly together. The sound is deep, haunting, with melodic and more rythmic moments which takes the listener on an interesting journey. The tracks are simply superb. All of the tunes produced by apparat himself included in this mix are first class, but the outstanding moments for me would be Telefon Tel Aviv's 'Lengthening shadows' and Pantha Du Prince's 'Welt Am Draht' (which is, for me, the tune of the year).

If you're familiar Apparat's productions, don't fear that you will be disappointed by his dj sets, this really is first class. Whilst 'Walls', 'Multifunctionsbene' and his peel session remain my favourite of his catalogue, this is still one of the finest albums of the year, and perhaps the only dj mix to match Michael Mayer's 'Immer 3', which was, for me, undoubtedly the mix of the year prior to hearing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who says electronica is dull? 21 Mar 2011
By Krisman
Format:Audio CD
This album demonstrates that there really are talented DJ/producers still releasing quality in a time of commercial critical mass. Apparat manages to blend styles and take you on a goold old fashioned 'journey'. Sorry to sound cliched but it really is what a good mix is all about. You cannot just listen to snippets it must be consumed as a whole. Great stuff and this will be listened to time and time again. I also feel this will age extremely well unlike 90% of mixes that are released.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the DJ Kicks series 21 Mar 2011
By Jamie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love they way DJ Kicks operate, they certainly pick specialised artists out and often get astonishingly good results and this is no exception.

Why then only give it 4 stars, especially when everyone else has given it 5? Consistency..... The start, middle and end of this album are brilliant but there are points in between which don't quite live up to expectation. It's really just the odd track like Luke Abbot's "More Room" and the Cosmin TRG track.

The beginning then, starts infectiously. Apparat's own "Circles" is marvellously funky and blends handsomely with 69's track "Rushed". Telefon Tel Aviv slows the pace a little and really adds an international feel. Apparat's interlude slows it down more with some haunting melodies but by the time we get to Oval's "Legendary" I'm really looking for something to pick up the beat.

Good job we're starting the middle section of the album then... Some nice percussive numbers up the tempo and mood again and lead well into something deep and dark from Ripperton. Love it.

Such a shame that the dark beats are broken by some DnB that sounds like it's had a bad smartie.

Four Tet fortunately bring it back with a great laid back track with harmonised vocal sounds. This leads in to the much lauded Pantha du Prince track - very laid back beats.

All this and you've only got to track 13!

There's plenty more to discover on Apparat's journey, including great tracks from Burial, Ramadanman, Joy Orbison and also more from the main man himself.

This album, as a whole, is a great addition to your musical library.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a flair for other people's tracks! 28 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Not only does he make great music of his own, but Apparat also allows me to discover other fellow artists with similar sensibilities and kickass beats. It is thanks to this album that I got into Pantha du Prince (and then into his earlier album This Bliss) and also Ramadanman. The album is just one continous flow of musical bliss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing work. 26 Oct 2012
By Ben C
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This cd has some really well mastered, listenable tracks of which i have enjoyed listening to for almost a year now. You'l probably keep on playing this long after you've bought it. The tracks really grow on you.

I recommended it for long car journeys, for its progressive nature. I can listen from start to finish and not get bored.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure art 21 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This it absolutely amazing, I'm listening to it now for the second time in a row since buying it. Buy it, it will make you grin cannot explain how good it is as I'm still in shock!
This is the work of an artist and not the flashing light bulb type, a true genius at work.
