Crown Ruler Mix #2 —
The second mix in this series is by Italy’s Volcov. Around since the late 80’s, the DJ, producer and collector is known for his extensive knowledge and his gift to seamlessly spin across all genres with ease.
Volcov stays active with three labels of his own (Archive, Neroli and SJNRL), producing under the Isoul8 moniker and currently maintains a busy schedule as part of the infallible Sounds Familiar roster.
