DJ, collector and music lover since the late 80’s, Volcov has played all around Europe, USA and Japan. Real name Enrico Crivellaro, Volcov founded the record labels Archive in 1997, Neroli in 2000 and SJNRL in 2003. Also producing under the Isoul8 moniker for labels such as SonarKollektiv, Still Music, Rush Hour and having done remixes for Jazztronik, Azymuth, Taylor McFerrin, Paul Randolph, Frankie Valentine, Tokyo Black Star.
Most notably he released the acclaimed album Rima – ‘This World’ for Jazzanova Compost together with Domu in 2003, and later on his debut solo ‘Balance’ for Sonar Kollektiv in 2006. His gifted ear for all things melodic brought him to release several compilations including the now classic melodic techno collection ‘Soul In Motion’, the rare groove compilations ‘Way Back When’, and ‘I Owe It To Myself’ both on Especial. Last year saw him also release Archive’s 15th anniversary album ‘The Crystal Collection’ and the a 90-minute boogie mix on cassette for the ASE label.
In 2016 he released another compilation, this time for legendary UK label BBE. ‘…from the Archive’. Which is a collection of special songs from various eras that Volcov encountered along the years and felt the urge to share. The split 12” of covers of the Classic ‘Stop Bajon’ with Theo Parrish and Mark De Clive Lowe for Archive records also deserves an honourable mention.
Volcov is a very respected disco/soul/funk editor and his SJNRL releases are a favoured by the likes of Sadar Bahar and Theo Parrish amongst others. As a part of Ornella Cicchetti’s Sounds Familiar company, Volcov released a special disco fusion 7” called ‘Paua’ in 2014 which was distributed by Rush Hour and sold out immediately.
A new album project in collaboration with Gerald Mitchell [Los Hermanos/Underground Resistance] that features other Detroit artists such as Randolph and Pirahnahead is due in the near future. The Neroli label is still going stronger than ever with releases from Dego & 2000 Black Family, Lars Bartkuhn, Trinidadian Deep, Marcello Napoletano to name a few… Alongside ferociously releasing music, Volcov is still touring and can be found spinning at festivals and clubs around the globe, keeping the dance floor ON POINT.
