Interview from Dan Ghenacia (Circo Loco/Apollonia/DC10) .

-Hi Dan, been a very good year for you , how was DC10 this season , the music has switched to a deeper more soulful vibe ?

Yes totally… deep house was the main music on the terrace this season. We’ve been working on this sound for many years and now the crowd really goes crazy for it.


-Did you catch Kerri Chandler at dc10?

heard good things about how the crowd accepted his US style, Kerri is an amazing DJ and of course the crowd love his sets, but he is also very clever at adapting his music to the dc10 style.


-Where else did you play in 2011 that rocked your world?

Last week I played at Cassy’s birthday at Panorama Bar, Berlin. Always an amazing party! We did a b2b set, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky and myself, under our new set-up ‘Apollonia’.


-Your sound of the city CD on MOS was a perfect musical look at Paris how did that come about and how did you go about picking the tracks?

The concept was really simple, it was tracks that I was playing in the late 90’s. But to be honest they are timeless tracks that I’m still playing today. It was a real pleasure to work on this compilation, it gave me the chance to spend a lot of time going back though my record collection.


-Long time since you last played for the Faith crew ( the Key in kings cross several years ago in fact ) a lot of london house heads are looking forward to you set at XOYO

I’ve know Terry Farley for many years and it’s always a honour to play with him!


-Whats new in 2012 for Dan Ghenacia ?

I’m really excited about Apollonia as a DJ set alongside Dyed and Shonky, as well as working on the new label under the same name which will be our big focus for 2012.
On top of that there will be a few remixes and some other personal projects too!
