DJ Brace - Apatheia (2xLP)

Ships In 3-4 Business Days

There are certain things that, when held too close, distort our perspective. Emotions and ego can clutter the mind’s eye. Apatheia, which should not be confused with apathy, involves moving these things to a safe distance. This is not about a loss of feeling or disengaging with the world. The goal is to gain understanding through a disentangling from the chaos that litters the landscape. Unfettered, unburdened, and unobstructed... one can experience freedom of the soul and see the way forward with absolute clarity. We’ve charted a course for you. There are nine sonic signposts to soundtrack your journey. So, immerse yourself in the music and allow it to rinse away the distractions that have been preventing you from experiencing your own apatheia.

Soul Khan: “Apatheia reaffirms that DJ Brace’s work belongs in the same tier as DJ Shadow or RJD2, but with a style and trajectory all his own. Every track’s a genre-leaping symphony of surgically chopped breaks, live and electronic instrumentation, and possibly the most musically rich turntablism anyone has achieved on record. You don’t want to be late to such a legendary ascent.”

Ash Tullet - Daily Mail: “ Apatheia is the stunning conclusion to DJ Brace’s groundbreaking trilogy of records. Loaded full of sexy samples and though provoking rhythms, Apatheia is a must own for any serious music collector. In a somewhat stagnant genre of music, Brace provides a much needed gasp of fresh air, long may his Earth shattering streak continue.”

P-Love: “The whole album is super solid. Good combo of production skills and dope cuts without being too scratch heavy. Congrats!”

DJ Skribble: “DJ Brace’s album is a funky soulful turntablelist journey thru music and takes you on a bass filled ride!”

DJ Woody: “Combining equally accomplished prowess on the boards as on the turntables, Brace’s new album Apatheia is beautifully executed. The 9 atmospheric soundscapes gel together with great cohesion resulting in a rewarding listen to from start to finish. Evoking the best output of labels such as Mo Wax and NinjaTune, Apatheia is a must listen!”
