Orlando Voorn / Luca Lozano
Obey The Night
First up is Orlando Voorn, who Multiplex previously has released under his electro alias Ultra. This time though, Voorn supplies a hefty slab of peaking house via the sublime "Pull Up". Comprised of heavily compressed drum elements, some syncopated to create a naturally intrinsic groove, piano notes and snapback vox are also added; a maximized mix of instrumentation which keeps peeling back new layers as the track moves forwards.
Next OG, "People Person" by Lozana, is a deep tech thumper. It's various toms, woodblocks and shakers all working the floor up into a tribal frenzy. DJs love these kinda tracks as they create unfathomable waves of tension whilst also being great DJ tools in the mix. This one's no exception as it's tension-wrought pads, intricate percussion lines and sparse arrangement mean creative DJs will get loads of miles out of it. Add a few Sheffield-indebted bleep melodies and you've got yourself an amazing techno tune in its own right as well! Winner!
Voorn's remix of Luca's "People Person" sees it transformed into a steadily creeping stadium beast with those chunky low-mid stabs and a dizzying array of synth lines. Flipping roles, Voorn's "Pull Up" is morphed into a slinky, deep house / breakbeat hybrid via Lozano's skillfully guided hand....
Exceptional stuff from both producer's indeed as new school talent meets established genius, You need!
