Parisian trio Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky - collectively known as Apollonia - have been confirmed to mix the next installment of fabric's flagship mix series.
Formed in 2012, Dyed and Shonky released their first EPs on Ghenacia's former imprint, Freak n' Chic before the label fizzled out. The French collective are known for being a 'collective synergy' and representing themselves as one solid unit, often DJing through a hypnotic, groove laden house and techno. "We don't play like a usual back to back - where you can recognize who is playing what - we have a unity, much like that of a band" say the trio. "There is a point when we have played together after three or four hours and we no longer feel the time... it's almost meditation."
The announcement comes after a string of successful gigs - often for five hours plus - at locations such as Panorama Bar, DC10 and fabric club in London. Cuts on the mix include Daze Maxim, UK alternative dancefloor man Trus'me, '90s soul from Nails, Callisto's 'Need Ur Love (a DJ that sadly passed away recently) plus a couple of forthcoming Apollonia cuts for good measure.
