APOLLO 440

 

Apollo 440 are Noko and brothers Howard Gray & Trevor Gray. 

Their 5th LP, The Future's What It Used To Be - their first album since 2003 - was released in Jan 2012. 
They are currently in the studio recording album #6.

Ewan MacFarlane, longtime 440 collaborator, came on board as lead vocalist in 2007.


Having extensively toured the world between '97 and 2000, the band decided to resurface for live gigs once more in 2007, and have since headlined European festivals every year.

Original pioneers of dance/rock, since forming in 1990 Apollo have written and produced 5 of their own albums, collaborated with and produced other artists, remixed as Apollo 440 and as ambient alter-ego Stealth Sonic Orchestra, and created commissioned pieces for film, tv, ads and multimedia. During their eleven years at Sony, 1993-2004, they notched up 11 Top 40 UK Singles with three Top 10s, and had a chart presence worldwide with a succession of innovative tracks such as Krupa, Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Dub, Lost In Space and Stop The Rock. 

To date Apollo's Remixes number around 60 - from U2 in the early '90s to Puff Daddy/Jimmy Page and Ennio Morricone a decade later. Apollo's version of Puretone's Addicted To Bass was made the lead track and became a huge hit in 2002. Amongst their Stealth Sonic Orchestra Remixes are a series of Manic Street Preachers singles. U2's recent Achtung Baby Anniversary Edition featured no fewer than 9 different Apollo 440 remixes.

Collaborators have included Jeff Beck, Jean Michel Jarre, Billy Mackenzie, Hotei (best known for his Kill Bill track) and of course Mary Byker. 

One of the most synced acts around, over 50 different Apollo tracks have featured repeatedly on movies, trailers, tv, games and ads worldwide, the latter including globally branded cars, beers, soft drinks, phones, audio and software. They have also written tracks for several games plus two entire gaming soundtracks for Sony PlayStation.
