About Joris Voorn
Meet Joris Voorn, a producer, DJ and the pride of Rotterdam. He's a bit of a conundrum, playing his own house-style while holding a degree in, well … house style.
Voorn grew up in a musical family, and spent his childhood playing the guitar and violin before moving on to electronic music. He fell in love with artists like The Orb and Leftfield, and started DJing in 1997 when he developed an interest in techno and house and purchased an MC-303 groovebox to experiment with. It led to bigger things, like at the turn of the century when Voorn started a small studio to produce his own music (there went the graduate degree in interior architecture)…and just look at where he is now.
By an measure, Voorn's first release was a success. He would ultimately release multiple EPs on different labels, and a track called "Incident" would eventually make him a household name. The piano-filled number charted in almost every dance magazine, hit No. 1 in Mixmag's Techno singles chart, was playlisted by John Peel and backed by Carl Cox. The support was just what Voorn needed to take his career ot the next level, and by the time his debut album "Future History" was released it showcased 20 tracks made during his breakout years into the EM scene.
The upper echelon of the industry is where Voorn is at now. He performs all around the globe, and has been crowned Talent of the Year at the Dutch DJ Awards.
