Markus Pilz, known under his moniker APLOT, is making beats in his own way. Gathering his influences from the Golden Era of Hip Hop, he tries to create an analoguesque charme
for his own productions. His creative approach, of playing with lots of
different samples, leads to a specific sound that could be described as
electronic, idm-touched, soulful bass music.
The title track The Breathing is a homage to his early rap influences with an charming atmosphere, building up right from the beginning of the track. Big drums in combination with glitched percussions and a warm-hearted synth, are the main elements of the track. His particular way of slightly bringing new sounds and structures to the track is quit unique and is a note of his own style.
The second track on his debut EP ‚Tha City’ takes you on a dreamy journey, full of warming emotions. APLOT’s particular slant of playing with filthy drums and percussions, supplemented with analog sample baublery and a hypnotic vocal sample, this is the main recipe of this track.
The third track ‚Denim’ is more dancefloor oriented and reflects APLOT’s current musical output in the best way. With raised up bpm, filthy sounds and suprisingly emerging elements, ‚Denim’ is totally dancefloor approved!
We at Tiefparterre Records are proud to present APLOT’s debut EP, and we expect to see much more from this upcoming artist in the near future.
