Apollonia, the heady lovechild of back 2 back 2 back trio Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky has shattered all expectations we had when they first announced the venture.

In little over a year the Parisian outfit have successfully launched their Apollonia record label, been given headline sets at some of the worlds most influential clubs and festivals including DC-10, Panorama Bar and Fabric and have been invited to mix a Fabric compilation. All three members have individually built strong reputations of their own accord prior to Apollonia and these foundations arguably have been instrumental in their rocketing to success. Nonetheless it remains an impressive list of accolades for the first year of any venture. The amalgamation of three different personalities with the same end goal, executed with fluidity, character, unparalleled insight and limitless energy has been key to their DJ performances and they can certainly count us as fans.

There are certain DJs and producers it is hard not to have a soft spot for. One such character is undoubtedly Kerri Chandler with the US House legend still showing the same zeal and enthusiasm to pushing the scene forward as he did as a young man entering the game over 30 years ago

Thus the news Apollonia would be hooking up with Kerri Chandler to re-release his classic vocal cut ‘Sunday Sunlight’ naturally seemed a good idea to us for a variety of reasons with the Chicago man arguably more relevant than ever following him helming the 15th chapter of Berlin institution Watergate’s acclaimed mix compilation series. The release follows on from a series of well selected re-issues from the French trio that have previously repressed classic slightly forgotten tracks from the likes of Point G and Callisto.

Backed by a fresh remix from Detroit house producer Delano Smith this is a track that may be getting a whole new lease of life this summer 15 years on from its original 1999 release.

Grahame Farmer

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.
