Apparat comes to the Arches, Glasgow as part of his first full scale tour with a four-piece band, recreating his ambient, techno-driven electronica live on stage.

Moving from a provincial east German town to Berlin in 1997 (“one of the best decisions I ever made”), talented producer Sascha Ring was soon collaborating with BPitch founder Ellen Allien and releasing tracks under his moniker Apparat. 2007 album Walls, featuring Arcadia and You Don’t Know Me, was released on Allien’s label to huge critical acclaim, and cementing his hallmark combination of “the mechanized pulse and sonic possibilities of techno with good old bliss-out dreams” (Pitchfork).

Around the same time, Ring had been working on Moderat, a collaboration with the Modeselektor boys which officially started in 2002 with an EP. Finally releasing their self-titled debut in 2009, they quickly became known as one of the best electronic live acts around (being voted such by Resident Advisor in 2009), with tracks such as Rusty Nails and Seamonkey from their self-titled debut album fast becoming standard inclusions in the mixtapes of the electronic cognescenti.

His fourth album The Devil’s Walk, released earlier this year, followed a stunning and highly-rated DJ Kicks compilation, betraying Ring’s talent at both creating and curating huge, elegiac dark clouds of emotional electronica.

Support comes from When Saints Go Machine, the Danish electro-pop act probably best known for their 2009 track Fail Forever. Their beautiful new single Parix is taken from their Konkylie album, released in May this year.
