Enigmatic Dutch producer Joris Voorn has kept us waiting for his highly anticipated edit of Lana Del Ray’s ‘Video Games’. First unveiled at his birthday celebrations in February, Voorn opts to give this cut of the chart-raking anthem a free release on the run up to Miami WMC. Undeniably not his best work to date, the sophisticated styling of his deeper House grooves marks a familiar and somewhat inspiring cut from the usually groundbreaking Netherlands asset turned Rejected head honcho. Donning a substantial Electronic diversion to the originals emotive properties, this is an edit still well worth a listen, bringing a suitable modern club twist to the mournful melodic realms of pop music’s latest vocal heartthrob.
