Saturday 22nd February sees French underground powerhouses Apollonia return to Leeds' Mint Club for an extended 6 hour set, following up on a famous weekend in 2013 which saw the trio tear the roof off at Mint Club after an incredible instore set at the now closed down, Waxwerks.
The combination of Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky is one based on strong friendships forged over years during the birth and growth of Paris' now impressive underground scene. All three quote the Batofar (a Parisian night club on a boat moored on The Seine) after parties as the hub from which the later to be defined, Apollonia friendship, ethos and concept would be born.
Separately the trio have all had incredible success over the years, with Dan Ghenacia being one of Circoloco at DC10's most long standing residents (Dyed has also more recently also joined the hallowed DC10 roster). Check out some of our favourites from the group's individual earlier works below.
Since officially joining forces in the form of their formidable back-to-back-to-back DJ outfit and label, Apollonia, Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky have managed to breath new life into their already lengthy, well crafted careers. Check out the mix below recorded live from Circoloco at DC10 (June 2013), with the Dan, Dyed and Shonky talking over the controls from 1:30:00.
Last December we spoke with Dan, Dyed and Shonky about their famed back-to-back-to-back sets, their love for DC10 and more. Check out the full interview here and grab a ticket now for Apollonia at Mint Club.
