Roland Appel is a master of his class, enrolled in dance music for over 15 years, an expansive range of influence and experience has laid the foundation for him as both DJ and producer.
In 1995, Roland Appel began his production career with Fuana Flash alongside fellow Munich musician Christian Prommer. The duo released “Butterfly Catcher” with Compost Records, as well as a number of other projects, both as Fauna Flash and also as Trüby Trio with Rainer Trüby. The trio released a series of Ep’s as well as the LP “Elevator Music”. Appel and Prommer also partnered with Peter Kruder as VOOM:VOOM, and would go on to release Ep’s on Compost, and a full length Lp “pengpeng” for Studio !K7.
Since this first endeavor, Roland Appel has done everything but slow down. He has continued to push his productions forward on labels like Poker Flat and Life and Death, continuing to elevate dancefloors, whether in his production, or with his DJing.
Today, we see Roland Appel’s new single for the fledgling Faceless Recordings imprint, in the form of the title track ‘Handshake’ of its eponymous EP. This one’s a typically smooth and jazz-infused composition, fusing organic rhythms and hooky bass grooves with blossoming synth melodies and expansive vocal lines.
“Handshake” is available 25 January on Faceless Recordings
