Touring Latin America twice in the last three years, and that's the main key of this exclusive interview in which he talks for the first time about those trips. Of course there were other factors that I just couldn't skip: His vision of Latin culture, the emotional content on his songs, the DJ Kicks mix and of course his long-awaited new album. Enjoy your reading.
- Once, early in the morning, Beelzebub aros – in this way Percy Bysshe Shelley begins “The Devil’s Walk”, ballad pubblished in 1812 that inspired the title of latest Apparat work. The homonymous album of Sascha and his new band was one of the most criticized and discussed releases of the last period. Apparat had already introduced his new project in our last conversation warning us that it would be something really new, if compared to the stuff he usually proposed. In “The Devil’s Walk” everything is designed in order to make harmonious each track: it’s impossible to fossilize on a single sound, on the contrary we are overwhelmed by the music in all its balance and by the soft dynamics of each track. And for this reason we like the album, because it does not aim to impress, there are no big surprises, every sound, every melody line goes in and out with great delicacy leaving great nostalgia for those sounds and forcing us to listen to the track again. As our usual we started asking to the artist something about the creation of the album and then we entered into the depths of history, emotions, curiosities and criticisms of the work. I know that conclude with the first two stanzas of the Shelley’s ballad might sound like a cliché, but reading the words of Sascha you will understand what is the strong connection between the two works.
