Berlin techno magician Sasha Ring, aka Apparat, is perhaps best known for his music with Modeselektor’s Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary. Under the Moderat moniker, the trio has traipsed around the world bringing its sci-fi effects and blissed-out vocals to the dance-floor crazies. Tonight, however, Apparat rolls solo—another major coup for Decibel Fest founder Sean Horton. Still flying high above the troposphere after this year’s successful, dubstep-heavy edition of the electronic music soirée, Horton (aka Nordic Soul) and his cohorts aren’t content with one victory. Indeed, local group Lusine and L.A.’s Nosaj Thing will also drop by for Horton’s fifth annual New Year’s Eve celebration. In addition to feet-moving music, the party will feature the visual antics of KillingFrenzy and all sorts of other custom-built stimulation. (21 and over.) KEVIN CAPP
