Transitions with John Digweed and Kieran Apter

Kieran Apter is quickly making a name for himself. After coming to the attention of some of the best artists in the scene as co-head honcho and resident DJ for Edinburgh house and techno party ‘Tweak_’, Kieran’s real breakthrough moment came in the form of his sophomore EP which released on Chapter 24 Records in September 2017. The ‘All I Want’ EP featured two original tracks by Kieran, including a collaboration with vocalist Leon Power which was remixed by Innervisions artists Aera and Manuel Tur. These tracks found their way into the sets of Dixon, Rampa, &ME and Andhim and were aired by both Pete Tong and B.Traits on their BBC Radio 1 shows. Anjunadeep then came calling, releasing Kieran’s next track with Leon Power, ‘Drifting Spring’, on the imprint’s Anjunadeep 09 compilation. The compilation reached number 1 in the iTunes Dance Charts around the world and number 24 in the iTunes UK Albums chart. Anjunadeep label bosses Jody Wisternoff and James Grant also hand-picked the track for a carefully curated four track sampler EP. In the following months Kieran went on to release a second EP on Chapter 24, as well as an EP on Monkey Safari’s ‘Hommage’ imprint. Both received high rated reviews in Mixmag and DJ Mag, and a full-page feature on Kieran was published in DJ Mag U.S.A. Kieran’s music continues to gain support from a who’s who list in dance music, with further releases on the horizon. In the last year Kieran has went on to play at festivals and clubs around the U.K and Europe as well as holding residencies at Cabaret Voltaire’s Saturday night party ‘Pleasure’, and ‘truelove.’ at Wire Club in Leeds.
