Volta is an alias for Olya Slobodianyk (born 1985 in Kiev, Ukraine), Melbourne based tech house and minimal tech Dj.
Travelling the world as a journalist and a professional party lover, three years ago she has finally settled on Australian shores.
Her new home has given Volta a gift of being surrounded with most talented and inspiring Dj and producer friends.
With passion for what she does and a good sense of direction, Volta’s career in Australia took off on a forth gear. From being a complete stranger to the scene she moved to playing almost every underground outdoor and indoor techno gig in less than a year, regularly performing interstate and in New Zealand.
Alongside Australia’s techno heavy unit Muska, she created first minimal after hours at Melbourne’s iconic Lounge. Playing up to 5 hour versus and solo sets every Sunday morning has moulded her into unstoppable after hours specialist. At that time Volta completely fell in love with Melbourne and later on - with Sydney scene. And luckily for her this love went both ways.
It wasn't long till Volta’s sound was recognized and welcomed overseas. On recent tour in Europe, she did 9 hour marathon with Subsonic's main weapon Marcotix in Kater Holzig (Bar25) as well as playing Edit Festival in Netherlands.
Volta’s sexy intelligent sound, playful charisma behind the decks and professionalism topped up with being an absolute music junkie and simply loving her dance floors, have brought her to do opening and closing sets for STIMMING, MAX COOPER, GORGE, GUIDO SCHNEIDER, D.RAMIREZ and BORIS BREJCHA.
She supported the likes of JAMES ZABIELLA, STEVE LAWLER, SLAM, NICK CURLY, CHRIS FORTIER, CARLO LIO, MINILOGUE, PANTHA DU PRINCE, MOVE D, FRED P, SEBASTIEN LEGER, STEVE BUG, ROBERT HOOD, MICHAEL MAYER, GABE, TELEFON TEL AVIV, DEEPCHILD, KOLLEKTIV TURMSTRASSE, MIDLAND, TURMSPRINGER, MARK ANDTONA, SOLEAD, THE GUY CALLED GERALD and CESARE VS DISORDED just to name a few.
