|Apollonia Tour á Tour Limited Vinyl LP
Apollonia, the French trio of Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky, are set to release their debut artist album ‘Tour à Tour’ in October. “‘Tour à Tour’ (meaning to take turns, or ‘alternate’) represents the idea of a continuous motion of music between us; a neverending circle that flows and becomes hypnotic… Our album represents the way we approach our DJ performance - there is a unity between us and we work like one artist; the music we play holds no boundaries of time, respecting music old and new.” – Apollonia
Vibe brothers in the studio, DJ booth and life, Apollonia have cultivated a creative synergy that sees them connect and work as one artist. The three originally met in the Parisian after-party scene of the late 90s, where Ghenacia was a resident at the infamous underground after-hour, Batofar. After over ten years of music and friendship, in 2012 the three decided the natural progression was to collaborate and form the DJ outfit and label, Apollonia. What they describe as a meeting of “black music and white soul”, they have showcased their electric back2back2back sessions in the best clubs and festivals the world over.
Created in a six-month studio lock down in Berlin in early 2014, and mixed down by Philippe Zdar (Cassius) and Alexkid, ‘Tour à Tour’ opens with the sounds of Apollonia’s roots in house music.
