A pioneer of modern-day tech-house and techno in his own right, Holland’s Joris Voorn continues to impress as he returns to Rejected for the release of his take on Mulder’s latest track, ‘Natural High’.

Already brandishing a total of three appearances on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, the sophisticated stylings of his deeper House grooves marks a familiar and inspiring cut from the usually trend-setting Netherlands asset turned Rejected head honcho. Donning a substantial Electronic diversion to the Mulder original, this edit may not eclipse that of his acclaimed ‘Goodbye Fly‘ single but is still well worth a listen and purchase, bringing his infectious take on House music to the table once again.

As if his versatile style wasn’t enough to fortify himself as one of the most talented producers of modern-day tech-house and techno, Joris Voorn continues to impress with a return to Rejected to take on Mulder’s forthcoming track ‘Natural High’.

Already brandishing a total of three appearances on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, the sophisticated stylings of his deeper House grooves marks a familiar and inspiring cut from the usually groundbreaking Netherlands asset turned Rejected head honcho. Donning a substantial Electronic diversion to the Mulder original, this edit may not successfully eclipse that of his acclaimed ‘Goodbye Fly‘ single but is still well worth a listen, bringing an infectious modern club twist to the table once again.

With a track record for intense Techno offerings that spans well over a decade, the return of Holland’s Steve Rachmad for 2012 has been one of diverse underground stylings. Joining the esteemed imprint of Joris Voorn and Edwin Ooserwal for the first time, Rachmad presents a formative insight into his smoother side with ‘Bling It Up’. Without overstepping the warm characteristics that Rachmad’s melodic stylings so seamlessly builds throughout the track, the devout Dutch Techno asset shows that his softer side is not all ambient fuzz, bringing a positive shade of character to the often overlooked realms of melodic club music.

Already boasting a firm track record alongside Joris Voorn’s infamous Rejected imprint, Space Ibiza resident and sovereign of the Saved Records legacy Nic Fanciulli dons a vouble-barelled offering to the forward-thinking Tech House stronghold. In the wake of the labels landmark instalment of the Dusty House series from Voorn himself, Fanciulli extends the stamina with two groove-induced numbers tailored perfectly for the season ahead.

While ‘Movin On’ embraces the British producers divine rhythmic persuasion with an assorted array of stern leads, the stiff sample led canvas of ‘Round & Round’ digs deeper into the realms of Fanciuli’s unpretentious knack for cut quality Tech tracks for every possible occasion. ‘Goodbye Fly‘ was always going to be a tough cookie to top, but the British Tech trooper proves well and truly on task to making 2012 his most accomplished year to date.

Rejected’s Dusty House series of EPs has easily become one of the most highly adorned Tech House instalments to date. But after a sterling series of offerings from the likes of Nic Fanciulli and Daniell Dubb, the labels ringmaster and enigmatic Dutch club bandit Joris Voorn returns to the driving seat to follow-up the original 2009’s standard setting EP ‘Room 1’. Three-years down the line, Voorn’s impeccable ear for the imperfect House cut remains inherently superior.

Where ‘Spank The Maid’ places an entourage of inspired grooves alongside the all too familiar resonance of Voorn’s decisive vocal sample work, it’s astounding transitions and consistent energy work wonders. Add the sharp riffs and disjointed chords that make up ‘Goodbye Fly’ and Room 6 remains as crucial to the realms of trend-dodging House as its predecessor did several years before.

It may have been close to five months since its premiere as the inaugural track of 2012 for club-goers attending Gashouder in Amsterdam to ring in the new year, but the official title of one of Joris Voorn’s most sought-after works to date had not surfaced until recently. First told to be something of a private production for Voorn’s live sets, the track now entitled ‘Goodbye Fly’ sees Voorn bring his A-Game yet again for a downright epic concoction of infectious baselines and an absolutely brilliant top line.

The Rejected head honcho’s productions are known to cause quite a stir amongst tech house heads across the globe, but few have made such a spectacular inauguration into the limelight as ‘Goodbye Fly’. With its carefully crafted drum combinations and overall groovy appeal, ‘Goodbye Fly’ boosts our expectations as far as his studio output in 2012 is concerned further. Add the fact that it’s been told to merely be the B-side of his new EP, and Voorn’s next release might just be his best one yet.

‘Goodbye Fly’ will be released soon on his own Rejected label.

Representing the more potent part of Canada’s new breed of talented producers currently emerging, Montreal’s Maher Daniel makes his debut on the Rejected imprint. Single-handedly picked by head honcho Joris Voorn himself, Daniel has laid down a respectable amount of soulfulness and production proficiency for what is looking to be his best offering to date. Featuring a slightly distorted lead, some solid drum combinations and a soothing interlude, the two-track EP’s ‘Big Bad Clay’ does certainly live up to its status as the package’s headliner, still leaving room for the B-side’s ‘House Of All Kinds’ play the chunkier role with an array of rolling percussions and dominant drum lines.

As if his versatile style as a producer wasn’t enough to fortify himself as one of the A-listed producers of modern-day tech-house and techno, Joris Voorn rounds off his proceedings of 2011 with a remix duty for electronic music legend Moby. With his unique ability to, despite the somewhat basic structure of his productions, perpetually create diverse yet rapturous trademark sound combinations and consequently discern his music outlet eminently, Voorn has managed to make some serious impact on the electronic dance music scene under his well over 8 years as a top-tier character of tech and techno.

Whilst the original of After, which has also seen remix duties from Tommy Trash and Tim Mason this year, represents a quite dramatic and mysterious side of things, the Hollander has evidently seen it his duty to clarify the distinct sound of Moby into an appealing and far more dance-friendly jam. Featuring soothing piano chords, spiffy guitar-like riffs, Moby’s mysterious and rather discreet vocals as well as smooth tech beats, Voris makes for a last, top-notch offering to join his high-quality track roster of 2011.

Joris Voorn’s remake of Moby, titled After the After, is out now via his own Rejected label.

The Sensation White resident Joris Voorn makes another appearance on his beloved Rejected imprint. This time teaming up alongside established tech icon Nic Fanciulli to present us a meaty new single of theirs. Following the vibrant remix of Callisto from late 2010, Together is the next single lined up to climb the charts. Accompanied by the Pete Tong-championed edit of Mark Fanciulli’s The Tide, this epic package is definitely worthy of recognition.
