We asked Mark Lawrence (a.k.a. Mala), to no avail – the Deep Medi capo has no intentions of revealing anything about the identity of his newest signing, a collective of beat-and-bass-smiths from East London who prefer to remain anonymous and hide behind all kinds of intriguing artwork designed by Gerbil Tea. The crew –it could well be only one person– answers to the name of Old Apparatus, and Depp Medi number 038 is all theirs. For now, there is no title or tracklist confirmed for the EP, but it will be released on 24thJanuary. If you want to check out the dystopia of Old Apparatus, you can listen to samples of their first tunes after the jump, or download a first promo mix here. We’re intrigued.
