As the world embraces vinyl once more we present to you our next adventures on wax with a special classic cut featuring four quality slices from the legendary Orlando Voorn. Orlando Voorn is revered as having brought the sounds of Amsterdam and Detroit together to create a unique flavour that still rings true today. Having won the Dutch DMC championship in 1986 he then turned his hand to producing. Since 1991 he has been churning out quality techno and he soon got noticed by the likes of Juan Atkins and Derrick May both of whom he has worked with extensively. A fan of many genres of music including Hip Hop, Electro, Drum n Bass, Techno etc…, he used a string of aliases – 31 at last count – with some gaining huge popularity. We’re delighted to bring you these fantastic tracks on vinyl which will no doubt take pride of place in many collections.
Limited Edition – The Light is a classic from 1992 and showcases Orlando’s producing and sampling skills to the max. Such a perfectly executed track with mesmerizing stabs and chords that take on many persona throughout the track building up a solid techno groove, simply magical.
Dope Computer appeared next to Flash in its original form, but here we’ve been graced with a remix from techno master Ken Ishii. Ken does as Ken does and he knocks it outta the park with this one. A sublime transformation from the original, acidified and discofied to the max.
Orlando Voorn and Juan Atkins reside under their Infiniti guise to give us Game One which is a perfect example of an energetic techno slice from 1994, this one made you move and got right up under your skin with its infectious groove. The remix from Steve Rachmad beefs up the sound and adds a deeper element with strings and a brilliantly executed stab sequence.
Format #1 gave us one of the most iconic techno tracks of the early nineties. Solid Sessions gets the remix treatment from Vince Watson. Scottish producer Vince’s pacey remix from 2011 delivers a sublime techno groove that simplified the melody and added perfectly balanced layers to beef up the groove.
