Lissat & Voltaxx are none other than well known producers Jens Lissat and Marco Wolters from Cologne, Germany. Since 2006 Jens and Marco, under the Lissat & Voltaxx alias, have released many projects on trendsetting labels such as Toolroom, Sneakers Muzik, Kingdome Kome Cuts, and Ministry of Sound. They have a wide range of styles from Progressive to House to Tech House.
2008 was a very successful year for the duo. Their remix of “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 another rewarding year for Lissat & Voltaxx. With remixes for Roger Sanchez, Nick Bridges and Austin Leeds, 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. Their track “The Music And Me” comes with great remixes from DJ Wady, Manuel De La Mare, Eric Entrena, Kid Chris, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, whilst not forgetting the Original Instrumental from Lissat & Voltaxx themselves.
On February 9th, 2010 Lissat & Voltaxx released “8 Days In Kazantip” on label 303 Lovers with a superb remix pack by Marshall, Manuel De La Mare and Alex Kenji. Then followed another release on Toolroom/LONS “High & Horny” with a megablast of remixes from the likes of Saeed Younan, Ahmet Sendil, Stefano Noferini, and DJ Wady.
They also produced and remixed new single “Emergency” for their very own DJane/Vocalist Betty Bizarre, which was released on Stefano Noferini’s label, Deeperfact. Their latest remixes include Hoxton Whores “Staunch”, Peter Rauhofer & Lula “The DJs List”, Tomcraft “Loneliness 2010”, Saeed Younan “House Is”, Genji Yoshida “Loud” and mighty remix on Tom Novy “Now Or Never” which for a long time lingered in Beatport Top 10.
My personal favorite track from Lissat & Voltaxx is “Droid” which can be found on “Ministry Of Sound Dance Anthems” compilation. It’s one of those songs where you can dance and learn something new in the same time!
