You guys just finished your ‘No Love USA’ tour, talk to us about the highlights and experiences you’ve had on your tour and why did you guys come up with the title as ‘No Love USA’ ?

 

VOLAC 

We got a great experience in the USA. American people are differ from people Russia or Brazil. We have never played in the USA before ‘No Love Tour’ and we really enjoyed to play for them. Before the tour, we have already released our single “No Love” on Hits Hard records. That is why we called our tour “No Love”.

 

RaverMag. 
You’re roots stem from Russia what differences do you see from playing there vs. playing in the US?

 

VOLAC

The music we play for Russians sounds like something new for them because there are in Russia nobody play kind of Bass House and House music. This sound is not popular there. Americans need to be surprised by something new. They definitely need to see a show.



RaverMag.
You guys delivered an amazing set at Elements. What’s was the experience like to see so many fans supporting your music?

 

VOLAC

In the US tour we realized that we have so many fans there. Definitely it was pleasure to play our music for American fans. In the beginning of our sets at HARD and Elements festivals there were not so many people but in the middle of set time stages were full packed. It means people enjoyed our music and we have fans.

 

RaverMag
Apart from touring the world what’s the one message you hope fans both old and new can take away from your music?

 

VOLAC

Keep an eye open. We are still working despite the touring on new sound.

 

RaverMag.
Some producers mesh well and some simple don’t. You’ve probably have been asked this a lot but how did you both meet and how do you collaborate and work together when you’re on the decks?

 

VOLAC

Yeah this question we’ve heard a lot. It’s simple story. We’ve been friends from childhood. We known each other very well. We have same taste of music.

Bonus Question: What’s the one thing you guys miss from home the most? Is it the vodka or the caviar?

 

VOLAC

Haha J definitely this is our families. And of course girls. They are most beautiful in the world.
