Behind the Beat: Volac

Behind the Beat: Volac
From Russia with Bass and G-House, electronic duo, Volac have stepped up their game in terms touring and releases in recent months. Childhood best friends Sasha and Stas, who form the duo show their unique style in cartoon comics and produce their own “Volacast” show featuring guests across genres. Volac has collaborations with Sharam Jey, Illusionize, Bruno Furlan, Vanilla Ace and some others along the way. To get a sense Volac’s style, I would recommend listening to their Hard Summer Music Festival 2017 mix to start. Only The Beat had the opportunity to hear a Volac set at a  show in Washington, D.C, recently and went Behind the Beat for an interview shortly afterwards. Only The Beat: Take us back.
