André Pollmann aka Apoll started his musical career 1987! Living in an industrial area (Duisburg / Germany), he was involved in the EBM scene which started to grow at this time in Belgium. Apoll was influenced by Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Clock DVA, Soft Cell, Liaisons Dangereuses, Front 242 and of course Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk. Talking of Kraftwerk: in 2004, a dream came through! Apoll was asked to remix a track from Wolfgang Flür, a member of the pioneers – Kraftwerk!
After leaving Duisburg for Switzerland in 1991, Apoll quit the EBM scene and found his love as a producer as well as a dj in electronic, minimal styled dance music and started releasing on different well know labels (mentioned above)
In 2001, Apoll started his own label called TONGUT. TONGUT stands for minimal quality techno and features artists like James Taylor/Swayzak, Rene Breitbarth, Holger Flinsch, Todd Bodine, Falko Brocksieper, Hugo, Joachim Spieth, Björn Stolpmann and of course Apoll himself. In 2006, NEOPREN was added as a new label with great design and rockin club techno and has already been getting great worldwide response. Within the big minimal scene, Apoll has never been a star, but he has been there for years delivering catchy tunes!
If you’re loking for some minimal rockin Techno and House, Apoll’s the man!
