In always exciting news fabric have unveiled the artists that are set to deliver the club and label 70th edition of their acclaimed compilation series set to be released June 17th. Next up to curate the series is the French trio of Dan GhenaciaDyed Soundorom and Shonky under their collaborative project moniker of Apollonia which they’ve been going under since last year. Despite the fact that they only formally launched Apollonia as an official group effort the members have all been close friends and collaborators for well over a decade and have billed their music as “Black Music and white soul” with Prince serving as an inspiration not only for their collective name- Apollonia  being one of his female muses but their music and since embarking on the project the soul soaked threesome have launched their own imprint and undertook an extensive global touring schedule together.

To record fabric 70 the trio headed to Berlin for a 6 week stint in the German capital  at the groups studio there  earlier on in the year. When quizzed on inspirations for the mix their response was simple: “The mix is a reflection about of our culture and how we play, and it’s a really good mirror of who we are and what we do, mixing the old school stuff that fits in really well at the moment, with some brand new music,” as is common with fabric mixes they included several of the own efforts including two new Apollonia tracks commissioned exclusively for the upcoming compilation entitled “Trinidad” and “Visa Americain”  in addition to a decade hopping set of other selections ranging from classic early 90’s sounds all the way up to the most contemporary house producers in the game today. Sounds good to us…

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
