Apollonia (Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom & Shonky)
For the latest edition of Mixmag Live, we bring you not one, not two, but three of the hottest and most in-demand DJs in underground house and techno.
Ibiza comes to London as they take over the awesome terrace of Studio 338 joined by D'Julz, Hold Youth, John Roberts and Enter resident, Bella Sarris.
Hailing from France, Dan Ghenacia, Shonky and Dyed Soundorom were already highly respected globe conquering DJs in their own right before their off the cuff back to back sets at clubs like DC10, Fabric and Panorama Bar led them to consolidate their talents into Apollonia just two years ago. They are:
Dan Ghenacia: Ghenacia is arguably the glue that holds Apollonia together. The other two members - Shonky and Dyed Soundorom - largely owe their interest in dance music to hearing him play afterparties at Paris club Batofar in the late 90s and his label Freak N' Chic, which he launched and ran for seven years is one of the most respected in the game.
Shonky: Shonky is a child of the Parisian scene that Ghenacia fathered. His first release came on Ghenacia's Freak 'N Chic in 2005 and since then he's released on Culprit, Spectral Sound and Sub Static and played clubs around the world.
Dyed Soundorom: With his ever present spiked afro, Soundorom is the member you're most likely to pick out in a crowd. The ever-smiling Parisian began by promoting and DJing nights in Paris and has since remixed the likes of maya jane Coles, released on Crosstown Rebels and Tsuba Records and played everywhere from Womb in Tokyo to Panoramabar in Berlin.
Fresh from both the DC10 opening (where they are holding down a residency this year) and the Amnesia opening, this is a rare chance to catch all three members of the Apollonia club in London this summer, between their packed Ibiza and festival season.
