- To a certain extent = proud son of TECHNASIA ...
In general, I'm not that mad upon techno (or mainstream sound, whatever the style) but this is nice.
My favourite is "LUCID DREAMS", fine work on that one.
- Exceptional album. Close to perfect.
- Early Bird uses The Crusaders - Spiral.
- Edited 13 years agoMarvellous follow up to Joris Voorn's highly acclaimed debut album, "Future history". Rich and vivid musical textures are on the menu throughout, as Joris ventures even deeper into exploring many styles, ranging from house, break beat, ambient through to deeply soulful techno. A big plus for not being afraid to try out many things and still deliver a proper album, which works just as well when listened to in one go at home or giving your body a work out on the dancefloor to these tunes.
Joris avoids falling into a trap of 'ten samey seven minute tracks' per CD, and invites us for a ride through his vision of electronic music. Versatile, melodic and ecclectic. Tracks are skillfullly divided by brief ambient compositions, while the tempo of the music goes from faster house to slower tech house back into some subtle broken beat.
Many styles presented, many moods and many possible windows to look out of. This album can be approached from more than one angle and can be enjoyed by a large crowd. It's fun, and is clearly a work of a man who has more ideas than one could fit on a single disc surface.
The album can do wonders on the dance floors as well, and I would like to point out MPX 309 as the most striking example. While it may be the album's simplest track, it just amasses tension and builds builds builds! People love it.
Pointing favorites may be hard, but the incredibly lush opener, Revelation, the funky and melody driven The Deep, then Lucid Dreams with its old school acid synth segment, and the driving MPX 309 are slightly above the rest in my opinion, but I am being picky here. There are no weak points on this album. Furthermore, this is one of the most interesting and purchase worth albums in electronic music I have heard in years. Seriously, it is incredible how loaded with memorable melodies, pads, samples and juicy beats "From a deep places" is. An absolutely compulsory listen for anybody into electronic music, and just when you thought everyone jumped on the minimal wagon, something as interesting as this drops to prove you wrong. I don't want to rush to any conclusions and label this an instant classic or something, but having that I am a fan of a generally more aggresive approach to electronic music, I admit to having this sensation that Joris Voorn is on to something.
And if you still have your doubts, Joris recently released a double CD mixed compilation, "Balance 014", so go take a peak at his DJ skills which, take my word, don't fall a single inch behind his breath taking production techniques.
