Dutchman Joris Voorn recently has been making a name for himself with the the Lost Memories 12"s, but it's this EP that's worth seeking. Over four tracks, Voorn establishes a finely polished sound that is both versatile and textured. Compositionally, the tracks keep to fairly uncluttered structures, which in this case prove to be effective.

Check out Joris Voorn's gear and equipment including the Allen & Heath Xone:K2, Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2 DJ Software, and Pioneer DJM-2000NXS Mixer. Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 Keyboard Controller. Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer.

Joris Voorn - Balance 014 How do you do justice to a double mix CD that takes in over one hundred tracks? Balance 14 is such a chef d'oeuvre that it seems silly to do anything other than cowardly chirp, "Go listen, the sonics speak for themselves. Voorn describes this mix as painting with music. Which is bang on. Both CDs-the first emotive and deep; the other, well, the same, but steadier-lock your mind into compositional analysis, and into interpreting the shades and tonal spread on offer. As do any decent paintings.

So can we expect a Joris Voorn in Concert tour anytime soon? Haha, probably not! Our teacher does organise recitals with her students, where everyone has to play something for friends and family, and I recently took part in one of these, which was an interesting experience. To be honest, I was more nervous for that than I am playing a DJ-set in front thousands! Where did you grow up and what was your childhood like? I grew up in the countryside of Moergestel, between Eindhoven and Tilburg. My parents bought a huge farm there in the seventies, which they completely remodelled. My parents still live there. There was absolutely nothing in the area. The closest town was 3 kilometres away, so there were no distractions and nothing ever happened.

Joris Voorn is a producer and DJ from Amsterdam. Raised in a musical family, music became a big part of his life from an early age. In about 1995, electronic music caught his attention for the first time. Getting deeper into this music as he started DJing in 1997, Joris developed an interest in techno and house. He started thinking about making his own music and bought the versatile MC-303 groovebox to experiment with synth and drumloops.

Joris Voorn sits at the epicenter of the Dutch electronic music scene, the most renowned and instantly recognisable artist from Holland, representing underground house and techno on a wider global stage. For a country with a population of just seventeen million Holland’s contribution to world electronic music is unsurpassed. While house and techno trace their roots to the marginal and mainly black American underground, its taken a relatively small country in the European lowlands to flip electronic music on its head and turn it into the global powerhouse it is today
