He was also one third of the famous TRÜBY TRIO whose album Elevator Music has been an outstanding success. In 1998 Roland teamed up with the producers/Djs PETER KRUDER and CHRISTIAN PROMMER to form the studio projekt VOOMVOOM. Singles on Compost Records and the Debut album PengPeng on !K7 followed in 2006. With such an extensive discography and such a high profile ROLAND APPEL toured all around the world and played in the best clubs such as Fabric in London, Cielo in New York or Yellow in Tokyo. He also had the opportunity to be on stage at the biggest music festivals such as Roskilde festival, Sonne Mond und Sterne, Sunflower, Big Chill Festival, 10 days off and Montreux Jazz Festival. His carreer in bands did not prevent him to think a lot about his solo project.
Roland moved to Paris for a year and a half and started to write new songs under his own name in 2004. His aim is to bridge the gap between a song and the feeling it carries and a banging house track that makes people dance. For that purpose he returned to Munich where he teamed up with sound engineer JAN KRAUSE and delved into his diverse influences from Detroit Techno to Folk over to Soul, Disco and House. Dark Soldier/Changes (SK158/elektrish) was the stunning result of his first experimentations and gained the full support of the biggest DJs worldwide such as ÂME, DIXON, GILLES PETERSON, DJ HELL, TIEFSCHWARZ, MISS KITTIN, PETE TONG any many more..
