Track Of The Day: Apparatjik - 'Do it Myself'
"Apparatjik works in cells around the world as an open platform for collaborations. After working with Pharrell in Miami, Martin came home with a demo of a fantastic song titled 'Do it Myself' which they had written together, and we just said, hey, lets just add some bits and use this as an Apparatjik song! I love the fact that a musical collective can be this unpredictable' Guy Berryman
That explains the origins of the track, but what it doesn't explain is the cosmic brilliance of it, which we feel can only summed up with the word 'woah' and that press photo above.
Have a listen to 'Do It Myself' below, then head here to find out more info on their second album Square Peg In A Round Hole.
