Balance 014, Compiled and Mixed by Joris Voorn [EQGCD024]


BALANCE 014 represents another step forward for the DJ-mix series. Across two discs and using-remarkably-over 100 tracks, Dutch DJ/Producer JORIS VOORN along with EQ Recordings constructs a mix of some of the best tech house, minimal and electronic dance music. BALANCE 014 combines variety and consistency making it perfect for trainspotters and dancers alike. The tracks change quickly and quietly, but the beat goes on…

“The process of making these mixes has been more like painting with sound rather than performing a traditional dj mix. As you can see I have used a lot of tracks, my intention while working on these mixes however, has not been ‘more is more’. Some of the tracks have been reduced to a 2 bar loop, or just the break or the intro. It was inspired and inspiring, and although the mix CD project has finished, it has created many new leads and ideas for future works. I hope that people will enjoy the results, some listeners will be surprised, but I believe I’ve pushed my own boundaries in a technical, but even more so, in a musical and artistic way.” – Joris Voorn.

In his mix, Joris Voorn combines tracks from Radiohead, Goldie, Leftfield, Jimpster, Aphex Twin, Dubfire, System 7, Minilogue, Cobblestone Jazz, Emmanuel Top, Joakim, Âme, Mood II Swing, Ricardo Villalobos, Radio Slave, Carl Craig, Flying Lotus, Marc Romboy, Robert Babicz, and Tiger Stripes, just to name a few. This isn’t a CD you skip through. In some cases one track is in fact 6 different tracks from various artists. The subtle transitions, the loops, and the multiple layers make Balance 014 a musical composition in its own right.
