Orlando Voorn is a veteran of the house and techno scene. There is a second tier name that get drops from post 1990 in Detroit / Chicago lore and Orlando seems to be one of the least recognized and that is a pity. By listening to this album you can hear why he should be mentioned more. Fun factor of these sounds is much higher than other futuristic Detroit techno. There is a house rawness and respect to the past that really shines in this album and his sound. Maybe that's what you immediately think of as the name 'Realness' starts the album off. Nothing is too different sounding to not to be thrown into his tracks. Old skool 'Hahahaha' sample, piano keys, strings, funk, old hip hop samples and plenty of soul in this cd also. 'Come with me' is another funk electro jam is a testament to the no holds barred approach. Great thumping beat sounds so fresh after listening to other techno that is so streamlined. Great party techno. Primitive and futuristic. 'Majestic' is perfect change of pace track to the cd. It's idm in a way the ya the melody is so beautiful over a broken beat. Like something you would find on Morr music fixed into Voorn's heavy bass. Sublime song there. Love the artwork on this cd. But it's only a digipack with not much else for inserts or info. Pity the packaging is so bare. Really needs to support the music better IMO. 'Find a way' adds a bit more soul to the techno. This is well done but not necessarily my style. Has horns, soul vocal samples in an uptempo jazz way. 'New Life' keeps the soul feeling but a bit deeper than the last one. Very well used vocals. I'm racking my brain where that vocal originally come from. Definitely a peak house track for the dance floor. 'Responsibilities' adds that "what you gonna do when you grow up and have to face responsibilities" used in dr.dre the chronic album and I'm sure somewhere else. Another peak house track. 'Have you near' and 'Switching lanes' are nearly beatless builders. The second is particular cool. Almost working the sounds in a fresh new dub techno way. Then the tension breaks once you find where it goes and still keeps the pressure up. Like a Sci-fi soundtrack. 'Step off' ends the cd with its most detroit sounding one. Sick bass. Overall a very good cd. And a lot different than most techno CDs. Really hard to not give this a 5/5. At the time of writing this 30 out of 31 are agreeing. Thanks to Orlando for taking things up a notch. This futuristic urban soundtrack will stand the test of time I'm sure of it.
