No surprises for what's in store here with the title giving the game away. What we have is a CD collection of highlights from the first three Vinyl 12” EP’s on Sullen Tone, those being ‘Derren’ ‘Realise’ and ‘Alfur’. So for anyone without a turntable or those looking to discover Old Apparatus for the first time, this is a tidy collection. These guy’s first emerged via Mala’s Deep Medi Musik imprint and were a bit of an anomaly for the label.
Operating on the very fringes of bass music the low end is in there but not the key element as with most bass music. Old Apparatus essentially make dark electronic music that encompasses drones, ambient soundscape,s woodblock percussion and odd bits of real instrumentation such as guitar and piano all with a brooding darkside dubbed out mood. Good stuff and a cracking little round up of recent efforts.
