Apollonia represents the French label founded in 2012 by Shonky, Dan Ghenacia and Dyed Soundorom.
A collaboration between three of Paris undergrounds hottest exports 2012 saw the launch of Apollonia, the new imprint and DJ outfit from Shonky, Dan Ghenacia and Dyed Soundorom.
Sharing the same musical roots, tastes and creative vision, Apollonia was a natural, if not inevitable progression for the trio. Serving as a platform for their productions, the label represents new beginnings based on a solid family that have already done much to shape the underground house scene, in Paris and beyond.
The debut release, Shonkys The Minneapolis Touch with his signature seductive melodies and hushed vocals caused a stir amongst their contemporaries, as did Trax On Da Road the solid solo EP by Dan, or more recently the killer Ometeo remix from Dyed. Opening up the label to esteemed underground producers like Daze Maxim and The Mole, Lotus Seven was the first LP on Apollonia from house heavyweights Chris Carrier and Hector Moralez. Also keen to share the hard-to-find classics that shaped Apollonias sound, a series of vinyl represses has included Point Gs magnificent Underwater, Callistos Need Ur Love, and uplifting house from Kerri Chandler.
But the anticipation for 2014 undoubtedly centres around the debut Apollonia LP. A product of some long winter sessions in their Berlin studio cocoon, the forthcoming release is sure to be the highlight of the year and Apollonias career to date.
