Volac lands on Tiësto’s label for first release of the yearVOLAC Press 1

For those looking for their quirky house fix, look no further than Volac‘s newest single “Baby Boy.” The Russian duo have released their first single of 2020 on Tiësto‘s Musical Freedom, and given the group’s heavy output in 2019, it’s likely this is the beginning of many multifaceted for Volac in 2020.

“Baby Boy” opens with pulsing percussion with alarm-like accents that keep the single upright. A dark booming bassline and hectic vocal accents keep listeners on their toes, with a menagerie of ad libs thrown into the mix as the track beats on. The song would be at home in an covert club or a high-energy tech-house set. It’s a worthy addition to the duo’s roster of releases.

Orbit Playlist: VOLAC and Phlegmatic Dogs bring back-to-back playlist action ahead of joint set at Electric ZooPhlegmatic Dogs

Electric Zoo’s 2019 lineup is rife with back-to-back performances that position one powerhouse producer alongside another for a series of striking collaborative sets. Two musical muscles in the bass-house sub-genre subterrain, VOLAC and Phlegmatic Dogs will take the decks in tandem at DESTRUCTO‘s All My Friends stage September 1 to throw down what will presumably be one of the weekend’s most memorable joint efforts. However, readers of Dancing Astronaut need not wait until Labor Day Weekend to enjoy some back-to-back action from the bass authorities.

Together, VOLAC and Phlegmatic Dogs crafted a 20-track Orbit Playlist just for Dancing Astronaut. Featuring selects from their recent EP, Russian Style, such as “Bastard” and “Tell You,” among others, the diverse playlist also employs singles from Habstrakt, Bellecour, Noizu, Xeonz, SQWAD, and more. The playlist only further cements the reality that VOLAC and Phlegmatic Dog’s co-appearance on Randall’s Island is a must-attend.

But it should be noted that neither their Orbit Playlist nor their forthcoming back-to-back booking will be VOLAC and Phlegmatic Dog’s first collaborative endeavor: the artists recently set out on their 23-date North American tour in support of Russian Style. Listeners can learn more about the tour here, and can secure tickets to Electric Zoo’s momentous 2019 installment here.

Exclusive: VOLAC hits the gas on Phlegmatic Dogs’ ‘Cuatrocats’ remix ahead of Night Bass compilationVOLAC

At the helm of the small, but unsurprisingly forceful, Russian house music front sits a double dose of bass house brawn: VOLAC and Phlegmatic Dogs.

Merging production savvy, the two rapidly ascending Russian duos are gearing up to release a compilation EP tomorrow, the aptly named Russian Style, together inside AC Slater’s Night Bass den. The compilation is comprised of two original cuts (one from VOLAC one from the Dogs) and one remix from each entity.

Ahead of the EP, Dancing Astronaut got an exclusive listen at VOLAC’s no-nonsense rendition of a 2018 Phlegmatic Dogs original, “Cuatrocats.” VOLAC pitch up the Dogs’ deep-set, garage bass and send in clattering hi-hats at maximum capacity to liven up the darkest of dance floors.

To accompany the Russian Style release, both duos are heading on tour together, so far set to traverse a jam-packed 23-date North American agenda, with more shows still yet to be added. The tour kicks off August 30 and runs through December of this year. Tickets available here.

Dr. Fresch and Volac offer up commanding new collaboration, ‘Filthy’

Dr. Fresch and Volac offer up commanding new collaboration, ‘Filthy’5E3A9046 Edit Edit 2 1

Dr. Fresch and Volac have proven their sonic union an incontrovertibly “Filthy” one. The aptly titled new number brings hip-hop-inflected house finesse to the underground. With Dread MC on the mic, the grating bass line gains a vigorous vocal overlay that can rightly assume credit for much of the track’s aural audacity. The cut’s gritty descents are in compelling contrast to the airy momentum heard in the song’s builds.

The track is an impressive emblem of the synergistic strand of G-house Dr. Fresch has built his fiery Prescription Records label housing upon; though this offering lands on another fiercely sought-after imprint. “Filthy” is out now via Tchami’s CONFESSION.
