If there is one thing about Apollo records one needs to know, it is that it always detects young promising talent, anywhere in the world.

Hailing from Georgia, Gacha is a young artist who’s star is rapidly on the rise, a producer capable of pulling together various strands of electronic music heritage and stitching them artfully together to make a bewitching sound all of his own. His debut release Remember proves to be a perfect match to the slowed down, spaced out ethos at the core of the sound with which Apollo records, the offshoot of R&S records set up and run by Renaat Vandepapeliere, are synonymous.

Having learnt to play guitar at the tender age of ten, Gacha began his quest to realize his own innate fragile melodies and harmonies early on, but it wasn’t until some years later, in a eureka moment brought about by discovering Boards of Canada’s classic ambient work Geogaddi, that he began to really strive to shape his own sound and sonic environment. Adding the MPC and classic Korg synths to his arsenal, Gacha gradually, patiently developed his own signature and his early productions were quickly picked up on by various influential music blogs.

Gacha tip-toes the lines of post, minimalism with dashes of 2-step but also exhibits his love for a number of styles in his productions from the dip and swing of Dilla to the ominous, dusty atmosphere of early dubstep, via the textures of Aphex Twin and classic Detroit House.

A beautiful bonus of the new Gacha music is the (live) support of vocalist Natalie Beridze. Her tender and magic voice adds just more of a dreamy and fragile atmosphere.

Renaat Vandepapeliere (BE)

(founder, owner of R&S Records/ Apollo Records)

Renaat is the R of the now legendary R&S Records, a hallmark for the best underground house, techno and jungle with artists like Joey Beltram, CJ Bolland, Ken Ishii, Juan Atkins and Biosphere. After thirty years of experience, R&S Records hasn’t lost its love for releasing cutting edge, underground independent music like James Blake, Lone and Blawan. Renaat also manages other sub labels such as Apollo Records, covering softer ambient and eclectic electronic music like Aphex Twin and Synkro.

+ Schwarzwald (BE)

Schwarzwald is a melancholic electronic music project of two Belgian youngsters. Focusing on emotions, they create an intimate atmosphere with their dark and brooding music. Despite being relatively young they have shared the bill with artists like Modeselektor, Dopplereffekt, Dark Sky, The Hacker, Hyetal and Nils Frahm already.
