716 Exclusive Mix – Volta : Shades Of Rays Mix


12.06.13 - Guillaume

Alex Volta est ce qu’on appelle un ancien, au bon sens du mot. C’est lui qui a en partie le mieux représenté la scène drum and bass française à la fin des années 90 et dans les années 2000 : racé, élégant, protéiforme (ses mixes étaient autant planants que nerveux) son style a fait mouche.
Pour moi c’est un vrai plaisir de l’avoir retrouvé et de publier ce mix aujourd’hui.
Ses mixes sont toujours frais si bien que même si je n’écoute plus de drum and bass aujourd’hui j’ai pris un grand plaisir à écouter (et ré-) ce mix qui ne contient que des nouveautés à part le classique Helicopter Tune qui conclue le mix.

Alex Volta is an old-timer in the good meaning of the word. He has been one of the best representatives of the French drum and bass scene in the end of the 90’s/2000’s : classy, as much atmospheric as nervous, his mixing style was definately the type that lasts.
I’s a personal great pleasure to have found him again and to publish this mix today. Volta mixes are still fresh so even if I don’t listen to d’n’b anymore, I enjoyed a lot listening (and re) to his mix which contains only new releases except the classic Helicopter Tune at the end.
