Largely considered the preeminent bond between the sounds of Detroit and Amsterdam, OrlandonVoorn is considered one of the most original and ingenious producers, DJs , and remixers to ever come out of the Netherlands.
Drawing his musical origins from turntablism (he was Dutch DMC champion TWICE in 1986/87), but firmly grounded in the soulful yet funky side of Detroit, Voorn’s underground sound has brought collaborations and mentorships with some of the Motor City’s most legendary figures, including Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May and Juan Atkins.
Releasing under a slew aliases over the years (including Frequency, Complex, Baruka, Nighttripper, and more), Voorn’s musical output has come by way of (again, in short) Lower East Side Records, KMS, and Fragile, as well as on his own imprints NightVision, Divine, Ignitor, Triangle & Slamdunk.
Now, Orlando Voorn steps up for California’s Roundabout Sounds 15th record. With RS015 he provides a release of 3 distinctly flavoured tracks. Each crafted to cut their own time/place on the dancefloor with a legitimacy that makes this is a must have piece of wax from the label. This is MPC style / sample based House music at its very finest.
“Muzik is Life” is available 25 April on Roundabout Sounds (Vinyl Only)
