From The Archive: Compiled By Volcov - Various Artists on LP
Producing under the moniker Isoul8, as well as teaming up with Domu under the Rima alias for the incredible jazz/fusion album This World, Volcov is a truly important player in the underground music scene. Remixing artists such as Frankie Valentine, Azymuth and Taylor McFerrin, running his two labels Archive and Neroli, as well as DJing all over the world has given Volcov a rare knowledge of soul, funk, disco and deep house music; knowledge which is very apparent throughout this album. BBE's From The Archive comprises a lovingly chosen collection of obscure funk, disco and boogie tracks, alongside a pair of very special edits produced by the man himself. From Chez Damier's sun-drenched remix of The Urban Crew's "Go" to Bembe Segue's emotional "Sun On My Back" via Shuya Okino's disco epic "Still In Love," this record takes the listener on a joyful journey deep into Volcov's rich and revered musical mind.
