Despite the Siberian electronic underground’s extremely short history, the small scene has nourished its own veterans. Sergey Dyomin aka Appleyard is among them. In his early days at the mixing deck at the age of fifteen in remote Lesosibirsk, he could barely have imagined himself preparing his first solo release on the experimental cassette label Klammklang ten years later and 300 kilometres south in Krasnoyarsk.
Sergey is a co-founder and active member of the Gimme5 community, which has long made waves around Siberia. Since making a list of appearances on different compilations (among them the acclaimed «Fly Russia») and producing a series of remixes and collaborations, Appleyard has started to develop his very own sound. Thick bass unites regular low kicks and sudden leaps to create groovy techno.
