Celebrated DJs and producers in their own right, the dynamic trio of Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky formed Apollonia in the Parisian underground, launching as a label and DJ collective back in 2012. Presenting a back-to-back-to-back spectacular, Apollonia mix tracks together for their extended sets of five hours or more, following a strict one-record-each concept for the full duration of the show.
The Apollonia label has released tracks by the individual members, as well as their collaborations, and tracks by the likes of Jovonn, Callisto and Kerri Chandler. They have travelled across the globe in the past two years, bringing their upfront mix of house, techno and deep electronic sounds to the world’s most exclusive clubs and dancefloors. The trio recorded a set for Mixmag, this year at the BPM Festival – watch it here.
Having left Paris in recent years in favour of Berlin, winters are spent locked in studio sessions in Kreuzberg, while summer it’s off to the hotter shores of their beloved Ibiza. Some of their favourite annual events include: DC10 Ibiza, Panorama Bar Berlin, BPM Festival Playa Del Carmen and Fabric London, for whom they mixed Fabric70 of the renowned compilation series. For the first time in 2014, they mixed the Space Terrace CD of the party’s summer compilation, as well as being given the coveted honour of opening Amnesia’s Terrace, one of the biggest events of the Ibiza calendar.
To date the trio have put out their debut EP ‘Trinidad’ on the label, but the anticipation for 2014 undoubtedly centres around their first album, Tour à Tour released 20th October. The first track to be revealed from their debut album is ‘Sona’ which can be streamed on SoundCloud below.
On Friday 12th December, Apollonia bring their inimitable mixing skills to The Arches for what promises to be an unmissable night. Support comes from their fellow French label/DJ team Hold Youth, aka Seuil & Le Loup, as well as Parisian DJ/producer Djebali.
