Who are Old Apparatus? Very little is known. Signed to Mala’s Deep Medi Musik label, home of serious bass-heavy sound system music, so far this enigmatic East London collective have released a twenty-minute promo mix and two vinyl-only records. Their debut self-titled 12” came out in January 2011, four unnamed tracks of abstract sound with deep, fuzzed-out bass lines, crackling static ambience and ominous Burial-like rimshots. Heavy dread-filled vibes all the way. This killer first release was followed six months later by an equally impressive two track 10”.
