on the record ~ dan ghenacia and dyed soundorom


it would be easy to lump apollonia in with the likes of hot creations and visionquest, but for me the french trio of dyed, dan and shonky still seem resolutely about the music rather than the lifestyle that goes with it: there are no gimmicks when these three play, they simply stick to a staunchly b2b2b policy and run a label of the same name that, amongst other things, is unearthing and repressing forgotten house gems such as dj gregory’s ‘underwater.’

it’s no surprise really, given that dan ghenacia has been a fixture on the paris scene for years, eventually taking the others under his wing at the now dormant freak n chic label before starting this project last year.

two parts of the trio, dyed and dan, are to play for london’s another party at a secret location in east london on 26th april. you can get tickets here before they furnish teshnowith a selection of the most important joints in the lives…
