ORLANDO VOORN

ORLANDO VOORN

Amsterdam (NL) / Washington (USA)

Orlando Voorn is one of the first Dutch musicians to establish a vital connection between Detroit and Amsterdam in the early 90’s. Orlando Voorn has long been recognized as one of the Netherland’s most original and ingenious producers in the world of electronic dance music. Voorn began DJing at the early age of 12 years old and later went on to win his first scratch competition at Amsterdam “Club Flora Palace”. Amazingly Voorn did this by borrowing records from his competitor.

After winning that competition he continued to practice every day and was discovered by a Dutch Radio host Robin Albers, better known as JayDee (Plastic Dreams) who was in charge of the Dutch DMC DJ Championship 1986. Surprisingly Voorn placed 1st in the Dutch competitions 1986 & 1987 for Holland which placed him in the world championships of DMC twice in the United Kingdom where he came in 3rd place (’86).
Voorn used many Aliases’ back when he started to produce records in order to present various styles of music without limitation to producing only techno. It was a common fad to use fictitious names as it is today. Voorn has never limited himself to one particular style of producing. You could easily say that he is incredibly versatile in switching between many styles that demonstrates him as a well known producer.

Along with side projects on various labels including his own Voorn’s NightTripper project will be re released on vinyl on Underground Liberation Records With Remixes by Various well known producers that respect Voorn’s work. After more than two decades Mr. Voorn can look back on a solid career leaving a legacy of dance music from the past, present & future.
