Review: In the space of less than a year, Roberto Rodriguez' Serenades label has seen its releases receive admiration from the like of Tensnake and Maya Jane Coles, and this compilation release offers the label a chance to reflect on a successful year, and win themselves some new fans in the process. Label head Rodriguez contributes the Balearic boogie-funk of "Has Been", whilst the Nacho Marco remix of "Ishama" takes a more cosmic path, dancing round a handbag made entirely out of the plastic casing from vintage early 80s BBC Micro computers. Johnwaynes contribute "Never Enough", featuring relentless synths and a tight bass "n' drums combo, taking things up and down beautifully, whilst Volta Cab finish with the slo-mo soul of "I Don't Want Love", its bumping rhythm brought to life with a staccato piano sample that takes things into a housier realm.

Review: Already getting a stellar reaction from big name house heads like Tensnake and Maya Jane Coles, Russian nu-disco/deep house producer Volta Cab's new release is simply a treat. The spacey thrill of "We Rock" flits between classic, peak hour house and early hardcore-isms of The Prodigy, while the deep key stabs of "House of The Rising Fire" and the slo-mo soul of "I Don't Want Love" are simply essential purchases.

Review: In the last six months, Volta Cab has managed to prick the ears of some significant underground tastemakers with his deep and glossy take on house music. There's something gorgeously Balaeric about many of his productions, which effortlessly fuse classic deep house grooves with lovely live instrumental touches. This fourth single release from the Western Russian features plenty of that sun-ripened warmth (see lead cut "Be Madly In Love", the lazy Balearic house of "Shame On Me" and the title track's squidgy nu-disco/deep house fusion), plus a thrillingly low-slung late night rework of "Be Madly In Love" from Daniel Bortz.

Review: Illusions Recordings tap up the sumptuously Balearic talent of Volta Cab for their sixth release; "Don't Give Up" kicks things off with a soulful vocal turn and 90bpm groves that have a particularly Ibizan sunset vibe with its glistening Rhodes and dubby Air-inspired horns, while "Strange Days" offers a jazz-funk odyssey. "Marat On Ecstasy" offers the most club-friendly cut with its deep chords and low slung bass delights. Massive remixes are offered; the mighty Trus'me transforms "Don't Give Up" into a techy house roller, Creative Swing Alliance delivers a very Fingers Inc style take on "Strange Days", and finally, James Cotterill & Ross Elliott transform "Marat On Ecstasy" into a midnight shuffler with viscous bass.

Review: Relative newcomers Volta Cab are fast becoming a name to watch. Through a handful of releases - most notably for Solardisco - they've developed a uniquely attractive sound that sits somewhere between the higher echelons of nu-disco and old skool flavoured deep house. The four cuts here are among their best; the title track offers a synth-laden fusion of electrofunk, deep house and Balearica, while "Watch Your Back" comes on like a sumptuous take on classic house. "Ice", meanwhile, is melodic and electronic, while "Surfing On Delay" pairs piano house attitude with laidback groovery to great effect. Excellent stuff.

Review: Having recently impressed on a wide variety of labels, nu-disco/deep house fusionists Volta Cab return to Seven Music to head up a split EP featuring a quarter of cosy cuts. Their "The Foundation" is the epitome of warm deep house, blending elements of classic US house, touchy-feely nu-disco and fireside-warm deepness. Baldo's "Deep Opera Motorcrash" is similarly heart-warming, brilliantly incorporating sneaky vocal and double bass samples. Stephen Day slows the pace on his excellent "When You Fall" (think rubbery synth bass and drifting deep house chords), while Robotalco's "Sandoz" bumps along merrily thanks to the use of a looped jazz bassline and some decidedly organic percussion.
