Point G – UNDERWATER Label: Apollonia Catalog#: APO004 Format: Vinyl, 12″ Country: // Released: Jan 2013
Passionate advocates of vinyl, Apollonia re-press POINT G’s rare classic Underwater, the first in a number of their personal out-of-stock favourites. The archetypal track of the Paris afterhours that encapsulates the sound of the Batofar Kwality parties, a memory which is at the very core and stimulus of Apollonia… Underwater was a favourite of the trio back in ’98 and continues to be a record bag must-have in 2012. Moody, bassy, a freaky lose-yourself-moment in the spaced-out melody, this deep house classic is being re-pressed for the first time exclusively on Apollonia. A production project of DJ Gregory, the POINT G imprint created in the mid 90’s offered a dark, raw interpretation of US deep house, given his alternative French twist. Making a strong impact on the underground scene at the time, POINT G gained much respect amongst his peers with timeless releases like The Raw and On The Raw Again EP’s, hence original copies of many of his early tracks are extremely scarce. Continuing to be inspired by the sound of Underwater and known for seamlessly blending the best of the old with the new into their sets, Apollonia offer another chance for vinyl-lovers and underground anoraks to get their hands on this notoriously hard-to-find old skool gem. A POINT G masterpiece, a modern day rarity and fifteen years on, a revered re-press. Coming 2013… Apollonia re-press the soulful sounds of Kerri Chandler’s bomb ‘Sunday Sunlight’, including a new rework from a secret remixer.
