2008 was a very successful year for the duo. Their remix of #1 UK hit “Silence” by Delerium hit the top 10 charts in 8 different countries. In addition, the Lissat & Voltaxx remix for Eddie Thoenick’s “Watcha Want” not only hit the top of international charts, but also was on the playlists of many global jocks. Their biggest success came in September 2008 with their own release titled “Release Yourself” The track hit #1 on several digital platforms and was re-released in 2009 with a hot remix package.
2009 has been a rewarding year for Lissat & Voltaxx. With remixes for Roger Sanchez, Nick Bridges, Austin Leeds, Tom Novy, and Tomcraft, they have quickly become the go to guys in the remix world. Their tracks on Eric E’s label have been doing damage on the international scene gaining them acclaim and recognition.
Most recently, Toolroom has welcomed back Lissat & Voltaxx for their third release on ‘Leader’s Of The New School’. Hot on the heels of their fantastic “Sunrise Over Mali” release (which featured standout mixes from D-Nox & Beckers, Phunk Investigation & more), their production technique and profile is pricking the ears of some of the biggest Dj’s in the scene like Dubfire, Fedde Le Grand, Paolo Mojo, Groove Armada, D.Ramirez, Tocadisco, Thomas Gold, Roog, David Penn, Chris Lake and more. Covering all bases musically, there are no less than seven mixes to choose from!! Not content with being pigeon holed to any one sound, the Lissat & Voltaxx original mix sets off rolling along with a solid house groove taking elements of all genre’s, incorporating loads of FX trickery and an excellent delayed Piano stab. Gradually building the pace with layer upon layer of sound. Dj Wady rightly so, is a name on the tip of everyone’s tongue at the moment. He turns in a brilliant take on the Original, setting the pace from the starting blocks with an up-tempo samba-esque rhythm. Manuel De La Mare is another hotly tipped star of the future, and we can see why here… He is on form with a dubbier blistering tech house cut that has you jumping up and down screaming for more. Other remixes come from Eric Entrena, Kid Chris, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, whilst not forgetting the Original Instrumental from Lissat & Voltaxx themselves. All in all a tasty package that is sure to please everyone from the Deep House fraternity to the uplifting Prog House, Tech & Techno heads.
