Dutch legend Orlando Voorn arrives on Transient Nature this March with ‘Forcefield EP’. Since launching in 2021, Wanderist’s Transient Nature label has played host to an impressive array of artists such as Scan7, Black Cadmium, Dukwa, and himself, picking up support from Lena Willikens, India Jordan, Hunee, and many more. For the imprint’s fifth release, Dutch titan Orlando Voorn steps up to deliver a four-tracker of sublime dance music, taking in influences from techno, electronica, and house for a diverse and exceptionally produced EP.
Leading the release is ‘Locked in’, with skippy breakbeats, hypnotic pads, and bright leads combining for a delightful trip. ‘Forcefield energy’ maintains the colourful sound palette, with a four-four kick pattern meeting sparkling synths, bouncing low end and sizzling background FX to keep the energy levels high. ‘Pokerface’ picks up the pace for a heavy-hitting techno jam as dub-techno stabs, rocking drums, and trippy FX form a late-night roller. Closing the release is ‘Apolonia’, featuring Sol Resol, which sees Voorn draw for flanging percussion and delayed hits making their mark across the staggered drum pattern.
