Apollonia Announces Summer 2014 North America Dates
French trio Apollonia, comprised of Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom, and Shonky, are set to return to North America after kicking off the Ibiza season at Amnesia's opening party. After relocating from Berlin to Ibiza for the summer season, they will be bringing their global underground sound from the magical white isle for a string of highly anticipated parties on this side of the pond.
The dance music collective will be ringing in Independence day on July 4th with NYC underground stalwarts Blk|Market Membership who are hosting a day party with Dixon and a night party with Apollonia for Brooklyn's own sonic fireworks. Then off to Chicago to inaugurate the first Riverwest Music Festival with a bevy of underground heavy hitters including Art Department, Damian Lazarus, Deep Dish, Guy Gerber and Visionquest. After a series of dates in Ibiza and Europe, Apollonia will return for NYC's end of summer bacchanal Electric Zoo to perform at the revered Sunday School Grove.
Back in Ibiza, Apollonia will be performing this summer at the much-lauded Richie Hawtin presents ENTER. on July 17th and September 18that Space, while on August 16th they will be staging their annual all night long takeover at legendary club DC10.
Since their inception in 2011, the group's policy of playing backtobacktoback sets; spinning one record apiece has succeeded in bringing an unparalleled groove back to the dancefloors at world class venues and events including Fabric, Panorama Bar, DC10 and The BPM Festival. The trio have successfully built a platform for their shared musical vision through their eponymous label and are currently finishing up their debut artist album for release later this year.
The latest release off of the Apollonia label comes from David K, the Parisian-turned-Berliner producer who has been a prominent artist within the underground house scene since the late 90s, having first joined forces with Dan Ghenacia of Apollonia when releasing his bestseller "Boul de Nerf" on Freak n'Chic. A fruitful career in production led to music on labels like Cocoon, Visionquest, Supplement Facts and Bpitch Control, while his new album Out of Range is just about to drop. His upcoming 2-track package, 'Middle-Aged Romance' on Apollonia, to be released onJune 30, is characterised by its bell melody and hard-hitting bassline, an electric story moving between ethereal wonder and an intense workout (pre-order here). "Drop The Beat" perfectly demonstrates the classic Chicago house style David K and Apollonia first enjoyed together all those years ago, but adding a very modern, textured touch. Get ready to join the global house music zeitgeist with Apollonia this summer!
