Apparat (aka Sascha Ring) co-founded the German imprint Shitkatapult with Marco Haas (aka T. Raumschmiere) in early 1999. However, it wasn't until two years later that he would release his full-length debut, Multifunktionsebene, which quickly caught the attention of IDM fans worldwide. Known for his prolific output, he quickly followed this up with Tttrial and Eror no less than six months later and another full-length, Duplex, shortly after that. A slew of remixes and collaborations would follow for a wide variety of artists both experimental and dancefloor-friendly. He released the double EP Silizium in 2005, which took Apparat in a decidedly different direction than his previous works. Most recently, he collaborated with Bpitch Control labelhead/DJ Ellen Allien on the full-length Orchestra of Bubbles, which was released in April of 2006.
