There aren't many boxes left for Dutch tech deity Joris Voorn to check off as a DJ, but that hasn't stopped him from mixing the 83rd edition of the fabric mix series in his seductive, and always dancefloor ready style. Creating the mix in Ableton, Voorn was able to edit, mix, and remix tracks in ways that he says aren't always possible through the more conventional means of using a turntable or CDJ. Including tracks from artists like Plastikman, Cobblestone Jazz, and Robert Hood, the program provided him the tools needed to create a 65 track journey that ebbs and flows seamlessly, as well as providing a new take on some classic tracks.
"Tracks are often used as building blocks in the form of loops and samples in order to create something new, and usually are stripped down to allow for layering and mixing with other tracks— the result is a mix that is more the sum of its parts," he says.
To preview the release which comes out tomorrow, August 21, Voorn has prepared a special 30 minute promo mix that's streaming exclusively on THUMP.
