Noorden Mixtape 34: Volvox

Last autumn we came across the »Live at LeBain« recording by Brooklyn based DJ Volvox. The energy of her jackin’ powerful acid flavored house and techno sound caught us straight away so we asked her for a contribution to our mixtape series.

The past months were packed with highlights for the Discwoman member: Brazil tour, Mexico tour, podcast for RBMA (incl. a great interview/portrait you should read!), debut appearance on Boiler Room – quite an impressive chain of events. She also left notable marks in New York City as co-host of the monthly JACK DEPT. parties at Bossa Nova Civic Club and resident DJ at UNTER, NYC’s »best after-hours party« (Grub Street Magazine).

In July/August we finally get a chance to see her live in the DJ booth as she heads over to Berlin and tours the EU.

»The events in Orlando combined with some personal situations that I have been grappling with have all gone in to make a very intense, sometimes eclectic and even violent mix that expresses a lot of the frustrations myself and people around the world are grappling with.«
