Joris Voorn’s 15 Years Rejected Behind The Decks Mix
Maybe it’s because I’m getting old. Maybe it’s because I’m taking life slower on a daily basis. Or maybe I’m just becoming one those old bastard who, once they’re aging, thinks that techno and house was better in the 90’s. It’s like comparing Jimi Hendrix and The Doors from 1968 with any rock from the late 70’s, just not the same energy, creativity and more idiosyncratic sounds. But nowadays, records in dance music sounds so much alike that I for one, end up listening to old records or just the unknown record label most of the time. While I miss the golden age of techno and electronica, once in a while, a mix or a producer keeps popping in my headphones and one of those is Joris Voorn. This mix, published on Soundcloud, could very well be a best of of who’s who in dance music be it house, techno, or drum and bass. Plenty of classics, top notch mixing as usual from Mr Voorn, this mix is just stunning and funky. With a few of my favorite dance tracks such as Tres demented, Knights of the Jaguar and the bloody James Holden with A break in the clouds. Essential listening and will be ringing in my ears for a while…Full tracklisting here.
