lol. I went back and edited my post. upon subsequent listens I'm quite content.
It gives me goosebumps to see/hear a recent Apparat performance. God everyone just shut up and pay attention to everything this man does when he's on stage. Please. You will travel on an amazing musical journey.
who's the guy on the laptop to Apparat's right?
it's some dude from pfadfinderei
Rhythm is a dancer.
I'm told that Apparat didn't even go on until 2:30 AM......

I feel that the sound quality of this video is somehow better than the rest.
Moderat+Modeselektor+Apparat on 3 separate days would be sex

Hell or highwater, fire and brimstone, not even cancer is powerful enough to keep me from Coachella!
Ok, after a 10 year hiatus I am getting back into edm. In the process of reeducating myself about the music I came across apparat. I freaking love his mixes and his new song off the unreleased album. I would like more similar music. Suggestions?
Ellen Allien (also check her & Apparat's album Orchestra of Bubbles), Moderat - for similar. For just some good edm somewhat similar - Four Tet, Pantha du Prince, Burial, James Zabiela's destination future mix, Nathan Fake, Jamie Woon, Ital tek...
You certainly do. What were you listening to when you moved on to other genres?
Its funny that you ask that, I just dug out my old CD's last night. The scene was so much different then. It took a lot of digging around to find new artists because they weren't as accessible via the internet. I was listening to Sasha & Digweed, Paul Oakenfold, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Taylor (don't know if he is even still around) Judge Jules, Portishead, Sven Vath, BT, LTJ Bukem, etc. Actually, it was Fatboy Slim and the Chemical Brothers that kind of drove me away from the scene. At the time, their music seemed to be more about annoying, repetitive samples than about any kind of emotional response. I know the Chems are loved on this board, and their first album as the Chemical Brothers (after they changed their name) was great, but the whole "brothers gonna work it out" thing drove me nuts. Fatboy Slim was worse.
I started going to raves in 1991, so I watched the scene develop in the earlier years, but I am amazed and the breadth and depth of music styles under the EDM umbrella now. I have found a lot of amazing music in the last month or so, and I am looking forward to finding more.
Here's a couple threads on the board with some suggestions:
and now that you are an Apparat fan - you definitely don't want to miss him. Hopefully it won't be too long till he comes through doing his "rave" gig. Those sets are amazing live.
I like Apparat's live stuff too, although, coming from the indie world, its an easy step for me.
Stuff I am crazy about so far: Joy Orbison, Burial, Apparat, Moderat, Sasha (still), Modeselektor, and fucking beardyman is amazing! His set, Sasha (originally went for nastalgia sake), and the Presets are what got me to start rethinking my music choices. That and the fact that Indie has just turned into a rehashing of itself from 10 years ago. It is nice to be excited to turn on my stereo again. I have realized how long its been since that was true.
I just went for a long run and listened to the Apparat DJ Kicks mix. With a runners high there are times where it makes me almost tear up. Its that fucking good!!
and another -
So much good music!!!!
Just researching the Sonar lineup and there's this little write up on Apparat Band:
Melodic electronica with drums, percussion, cello and a piano in a shift away from the dancefloor.
It will be fun to see some videos once this tour gets going.
