Exclusive interview with Disco Volante: Melodies, groove and energy

Disco Volante is made up of Daniel Honor (aka Critical Mass) and Alex Inggs (aka Risky Business). Since inception in 2013, the act has continued to attract psytrance listeners far and near with their high-energy, powered by euphoric beats and melodic undertones. Signed by numerous labels including Global Army Music, PsynOpticz and Nexus Media, Disco Volante knows how to turn up the energy on dance-floors big and small. We’re psyked to welcome this dynamic duo to the line-up of our second collab event with Reboot on the 8th of July, DISCO DISCO, where we will be celebrating the release of their brand new album.

PSYKED:
Hi guys! To start off let’s talk about your new EP, Clickbait. How long has it been in the making, and what kind of sound can we expect to hear from you guys this time round?  

DISCO VOLANTE:
Yes, we are adding the final touches to our new EP which we are expecting to release next month on Nexus Media. We can’t wait to showcase our fresh, new music! The last EP we released was in January 2015 so it has been quite some time. We have been working for months trying out different sounds and techniques, and our knowledge has grown quite a bit in the studio. Our new EP is definitely going back to our roots – the vision we had when we first started this project 3 years ago [which is] our interpretation of euphoric twilight/ full-on psy trance. You can expect loads of melodies, groove and energy on our new EP. We will be releasing the artwork and final track list during the next week or so.

PSYKED:
Will there be any more releases from Disco Volante coming out this year? 

DISCO VOLANTE:
Most definitely. We are writing loads of tracks for compilations on different labels (this is also why our EP has been so delayed). Our next release will be with our good friend DJ Ganeisha’s compilation Science of Music Vol 3. We also have more tracks on the way that will be coming out on other friends’ V/A’s including DJ Guapa Lee on Replicant Records and Chemo Boy through Global Army music. We’ll be announcing more soon.
