Vinyl Retention: Volor Flex

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Every Wednesday, Sardi lets us know what’s tickling his eardrums in the world of electronic music…

A lot of people will say he’s a clone of Burial. If so, better to clone a talented and forward thinking producer than the latest six month trend on the Beatport Top 10!

The Russian producer know as Volor Flex is without a doubt heavily inspired by the dark garage sounds of Burial, but for me he’s influenced as opposed to plagiarizing the great man. Volor Flex’s production is a lot crisper and well rounded than Burial and in some ways, more complete.

His latest release sees him teaming up with fellow countryman Encode, bringing together seven tracks of brooding UK garage. The Altiplano release on Dark Clover Records is an eerie journey through bass music incorporating shuffling percussive clicks, moody atmospherics and a lot of emotion.

Brilliant release and highly recommended if you like your music with a darker edge.

If you like what you hear, be sure to tune in to RTRFM’s Full Frequency between 3pm & 5pm, as Sardi and Dart explore the latest beats & bass from around the globe.
