Boomkat Product Review:
Detroit house & techno’s Dutch ambassador is subject of a necessary 2-part set collecting his classic output c. 1993-2003 under myriad aliases
Since the age of 12, when he won the DMC mixing championship in 1986, thru his reams of techno, house and electro output for the US and Europe’s finest techno labels, Orlando Voorn has long been a key bridge for Detroit techno’s Afrofuturist aesthetics and purposes in mainland EU. Whatever style he turned his hand to, one could easily mistake it for a Detroit production, and ‘Dilligence Pt.1’ rounds up eight strong examples of his work in bringing proper, hard-working hi-tek funk and soul to Dutch and European electronic dance music.
To play favourites, we direct you straight to the iridescent intricacies of his 2003 zinger ‘Diligent’, and the gloriously psychedelic wormhole funk of his 1995 spanker ‘Alistair’s Theme’ as Mute on the first disc, and then to the lush, driving mechanics of his Baruka joints ‘Technision’ (1994) and ‘Melancholic Strings’ (1993) on disc 2.
