Old Apparatus start Sullen Tone label

Semi-anonymous four piece production unit Old Apparatus have started a record label called Sullen Tone. The first release on the label will be an EP titled Derren, out on 16 July on vinyl and digital.

Dan (no last name given) from Old Apparatus says: "We started the label in order to build upon the dystopian landscapes that were touched upon with our previous releases and further expand the range of sounds that we have been transmitting. Old Apparatus is a collective of three producers and one artist and we all run the label together, from conception to release. Everything is done by us."

Plans for forthcoming releases are so far restricted to Old Apparatus material, and the focus is on vinyl releases. More details here.
