Apell

Apell (pronounced “apple”) is Anthony Pell an Australian, Melbourne musician
creating diverse and innovative electronic music encompassing styles such as rock,
jazz, funk & dub. Apell has acclaimed as “a tour de force with a creative mind who
lives in a world of his own” – (Marty Peters RECORDING Magazine US)

Sounding like the groovier half of Amon Tobin sampling George Clinton with a jazzy
electric bass, Apell’s album Reconstituted features a drum n bass version
of Neil Young’s Don’t Let it Bring You Down and a Chill Out reworking of George
Harrison’s Long, Long, Long. Another album highlight is the track Dubya featuring
lyrics inspired by inane quotes from President George W Bush’s speeches and his life
story.

After playing guitar, bass and keyboards in various Melbourne bands Anthony
created Apell releasing the self titled debut album in 2000 producing music that
couldn’t be created in a regular band format. Apell’s production techniques are
inspired by a diverse range of musical influences from rock (U2, Radiohead, King
Crimson, Frank Zappa & Jimi Hendrix) to jazz (John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Weather
Report & The Mahavishnu Orchestra) and electronic (Massive Attack, Squarepusher,
Unkle & Amon Tobin).
