For the second time in a few days I had to clean the windscreens for ice this morning, so the summer is definitely over! Apparat did recently a podcast for Resident Advisor (number 326 to be specific) and that let us dream about a warmer time, not this summer but more exactly the summer of 1987!
Anyhow, this is as good as it gets – until we get some more Moderat next year! Tracklist can be found after the jump.

Sascha Ring (aka Apparat) started out as a techno producer, but has now on his 6th album, “The Devil’s Walk”, found a more vocal based ambient sound. The album was released on the English label Mute Records in September 2011, and is named after a political poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley.
For “the Devil’s Walk” tour he teamed up with Electronic Beats, an international music program, and have been playing on their festivals accross Europe. The tour ended with 3 sold out concert at the Hebble Theatre in Berlin, and MToK was lucky enough to get hold of tickets!
Im not so familiar with Apparat’s earlier works but have listened quite a lot his latest album, so it was with great anticipation that I went to the Hebbel Theatre 2. The warm up band, Shrubbn!!, was good, maybe just a bit too much “we have these cool sounds” than melody for my liking. Funny enough almost all the audience was sitting on the floor while they played…
…but everyone jumped on their feet when Apparat came in! I probably could have written a much more detailed concert review, but hey! Sometimes you just have to enjoy what you see and hear… After what I could figure out the whole album was played, and it was a pleasure to experience. The band consisted of Mr. Ring that played guitar and sung, a drummer, keyboard player and on guy that was running back and forth to play bass, keyboard and guitar. During the gig there also came a violin and a cello player to add a different sound some of the songs. As the last song they played “Good Bye” together with Soap&Skin, and that was a very beautiful end to a great concert!
