Emerging Argentinian Talent Ignacio Arfeli Returns to Victor Ruiz’s VOLTA Imprint


Victor Ruiz’s VOLTA imprint continues its impressive run of releases with another undeniably potent offering. This time featuring Lisbon-based Argentine Ignacio Arfeli, who returns to the label via superb releases on Terminal M, AlayticTrail, and We Are The Brave, his ‘Feel The Bass’ EP holds no prisoners and perfectly encapsulates the gritty and raucous sonics that VOLTA is fast becoming renowned for. Released on 14th July, Ignacio’s second outing on the label presents a trio of equally unique and ultimately gripping peak-time cuts.

Kicking off with the title cut, ‘Feel the Bass’ welcomes you with open arms to its driving drum grooves and rising lead arpeggios before cranking up the heat with sawing bass, ethereal plucked synths and intensified percussive propulsion.

‘Infinity’ comes next, bringing dark and moody vibes from the outset. Thudding kicks, shuffled hats, and a rippling bassline melody steers the track forwards through a continuum of eerie vocal injections and dynamic synth stabs, bringing a murky futuristic persona from start to finish.

‘Imagine’ completes the EP with an interestingly progressive twist. Starting with a more industrial format, focusing on harshened hats and warehouse-worthy drum work, it quickly develops into a high-octane mainstage stomper with pulsating synths filtering up from the depths of the mix accompanied by creative fills, orbiting sample shots, robotic vocals, laser FX and another massive ripping bassline.

Ignacio Arfeli’s ‘Feel The Bass’ EP is available to buy/stream from 14th July 2023 on Victor Ruiz’s VOLTA.

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
