ORLANDO VOORN – CLASSICS – VAN CZAR REMIXES (BONZAI BASIKS)

After the recent success of the mighty Orlando Voorn’s collection of Classics on Bonzai Basiks, we decided to have our very own underground techno maestro Van Czar lead an exclusive remix pack of Orlando’s work. We think you’ll agree that Van has totally outdone himself on this one and showed a lot of respect for the original sound that brought about a legacy that spanned over 20 years. We spoke to Van about this project and we got the feeling that he spent many hours working tirelessly using his arsenal of instruments and all his energy, to ensure the integrity of each track remained intact. Van and Orlando have a lot of upcoming collabs that will be found on Van’s own CZ label, and the pair will also work alongside the legendary DJ Pierre who is pencilled in to provide the remix on one of their tracks, and as if that wasn’t enough they have also secured a remix from one of the Godfathers of techno, Anthony Shakir.
