It all began in Detroit.
No, seriously: “Detroit” was the first EP ever created by Marcos Benedetti, the young man from São Paulo whose dream of becoming an architect gave way to another dream, consisting on architecting quality electronic music under the creative alias “Volkoder”.
“Detroit” hit the Bull's eye, charted by artists from the likes of Jamie Jones, and played all over the world by Lee Foss, Catz’n Dogz, Sandy Rivera, Patrick Topping, Tube & Berger and many others. Not bad for a first timer.
Following this tremendous success, Volkoder signed with german label Kittball Records, and his unique style led to many invites to work on remixes for musicians who were eager for his fresh touch: Guy Gerber, Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer and Tiger Stripes were some of them.
2014 was a blast: Volkoder signed with massive labels like Toolroom, Suara, Snatch! OFF, Material and Hot Creations, besides releasing his first album. DJs from the likes of Carl Cox,
Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Luciano, Claude VonStroke and Nic Fanciulli have been playing his hot tracks nonstop. No wonder, for they are easily found: the "wonder kid" featured 15 tracks on the Beatport TOP100 in one year, making him one of the best sellers of dance music in 2014. Soon enough everyone wanted to see this diamond in a rough, and the invitations from clubs and festivals throughout Brazil came quickly: Warung Beach Club, Tomorrowland, D-Edge, Anzu Club, Tribaltech, XXXperience Festival, Kaballah Festival and so on. The time has come and Volkoder was ready to show his talent on the decks.
The success was so, that the DJ and musician has been awarded “Best Newcomer DJ” and “ Best Producer/Remixer” on the 2015 RMC Awards, selected by the critics. Such honors only serve as fuel to keep Volkoder busy, building a bigger and better career over the next years.
