Mix #099 by Eric Volta

Eric Volta is often looked at as someone who thinks outside the box. He is a native Londoner who grew up travelling, spending the first twenty years of his life wandering through Europe, the Middle East & South East Asia. His varied upbringing and multi cultured exposure helped to fuel his diverse artistic and musical curiosity that has helped him grow into the unique artist that he is today.  Not one for shameless self-promotion, Eric Volta had a clever approach and spent his first two years of djing around London – asking to remain anonymous on line-ups. It was with ... Read more

Review: Eric Volta – Love Your Illusion EP

“Like bread and butter, milk and honey, Volta hits the sweet spot” Who doesn’t love the 80’s? The Breakfast Club, Thriller, Beverly Hills Cop, Back To The Future, Madonna, keytars, wicked hairdo’s, colourful clothing, you name it and the 80’s brought it. It’s hard to name anything bad from the 80’s really, except for maybe Rick Astley… No wonder Eric Volta took the 80’s as inspiration for his brilliant floor smasher, Love Your Illusion. A self-proclaimed tribute to John Carpenter, Volta shows us again his versatility in producing. The 2-track Love Your Illusion EP hit stores a couple of weeks ... Read more

Exclusive Interview with Eric Volta

We’re very proud to have Eric Volta behind the decks during our third instalment of SUB/FIX this Friday. So before he makes his way to Amsterdam we thought it was a good idea to have a bit of banter with the underground renegade. Since his releases on Visionquest and No.19, the Berlin-based virtuoso’s career is taking off. It’s about bloody time. Why? Because this guy deserves to make his sound heard across the globe. That sound isn’t house, it isn’t techno either, it doesn’t even float somewhere in between. It’s unlike anything you have ever heard, quite frankly, and will ... Read more

Review: Eric Volta – Words & Chance EP

What does Berlin do to a DJ? Many have undergone the journey, and it’s safe to say there is not one straight answer to that question. This dirty pool of creative and eager minds seems to emit a natural call to anyone that calls himself a DJ/producer. However, many have returned home with their tail between their legs. For Eric Volta and Sebastian Voigt however, it has proven to be a wise choice, catching attention from the scene through many endeavouring projects. Both started their career in London, meeting at the now infamous Lokee parties, which Sebastian founded and where ... Read more
