Celebrated DJs and producers in their own right, the dynamic trio of Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky formed Apollonia in the Parisian underground, launching as a label and DJ collective in 2012. Presenting a back-to-back-to-back spectacular, Apollonia often DJ together for extended sets of five hours or more, following a strict one-record-each concept for the full duration of the show.
The Apollonia label has released tracks by the individual members, as well as their collaborations, and tracks by the likes of Jovonn, Callisto and Kerri Chandler. They have travelled across the globe in the past two years, bringing their upfront mix of house, techno and deep electronic sounds to the world’s most exclusive clubs and dancefloors.
Having left Paris in recent years in favour of Berlin, winters are spent locked in studio sessions in Kreuzberg, while summer it’s off to the hotter shores of their beloved Ibiza. Some of their favourite annual events include DC10 Ibiza, Panorama Bar Berlin, BPM Festival Playa Del Carmen and Fabric London, for whom they mixed fabric70 of the renowned compilation series. For the first time in 2014, they mixed the Space Terrace CD of the party’s summer compilation, as well as being given the coveted honour of opening Amnesia’s Terrace, one of the biggest events of the Ibiza calendar.
To date the trio have put out their debut EP on the label, but the anticipation for 2014 undoubtedly centres around their first album, Tour à Tour. Coming in Autumn, the forthcoming release is sure to be the highlight of the year and Apollonia’s career to date.
In December, Apollonia bring their inimitable three-man mixing skills to Glasgow for what promises to be an unmissable night. Support comes from their fellow French label/DJ team Hold Youth, aka Seuil & Le Loup, and Parisian DJ and producer Djebali.

Since May 2012, Hector’s House has become Edinburgh’s soundest midweek underground shindig, drawing in capacity crowds each and every Tuesday at their home, the prestigious Cabaret Voltaire. To compliment their weekly residents shindigs, they’ve welcomed some rather fine selectors: Chicago legends Roy Davis Jr. and Robert Owens; legends of the UK scene Nicky Holloway, Graeme Park, Terry Farley and Buckley; Scottish legends Harri, Domenic Cappello and Yogi Haughton; label bosses Luke Solomon and Jimpster; prolific producers Tony Lionni, Craig Smith and Jazz Spastiks; and finally the man who quite literally wrote the book on DJing Bill Brewster.
Avalon founded in September 2014, is held at the newly refurbished Tunnels in Aberdeen. With a powerhouse of residents on rotation and sublime monthly guests, most recently Russ Yallop, the night is perfectly suited to the venue which boasts two rooms of music across two epic tunnels and a Funktion-One sound system.

As Scotland’s original superclub, the Arches is the stuff of clubbing legend. There really is no other venue like it in the world.
Repeatedly voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world in DJ magazine, the industrial brick arches are home to a continuous roster of the world’s most in demand DJs and producers from across the dance spectrum, whether it be minimal techno, big bassline electro, hardstyle, deep house, UK bass, dubstep or trance.
With a Funktion 1 soundsystem and three fully stocked bars spread over six subterranean arches, the space is transformed each weekend depending on the faces behind the decks. From huge, sell out nights with platinum selling Ibiza trendsetters such as Alesso and Laidback Luke or legendary acts such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, to the hottest, most-hyped names on the dance scene’s lips – from Jamie Jones and Nina Kraviz to Jackmaster and Omar S, ours is one of the most diverse club programmes in the city.
As well as the Arches’ own club nights, which have recently brought the likes of Hot Creations label, Madeon and Chase & Status to the venue, for many fans the Arches is synonymous with either of its two biggest nights, Pressure and Colours.
