Electronic music first caught his attention in the mid-90’s, and he started DJ’ing in 1997. After developing a more focused interest in house and techno, Joris invested in the versatile MC-303 Groovebox and began to experiment with synth sounds and drumloops.
In the end of 2000 Joris began building a small studio to produce his own music, which led to his first release called ‘muted trax pt.1’ on Keynote. His first EP was massive success, filling the record boxes of Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, DJ Rush and Technasia. In 2003 ‘Lost memories Pt.1’ was released on Technasia’s SINO label and was followed by ‘Lost memories Pt.2’ containing the anthem ‘Incident’ which was heard on dancefloors around the world.
After the success of ‘Incident’, Voorn released his debut cd album called ‘Future History’ on the Sino label. Encompassing 3 years of ideas and inspiration, the cd contains 20 diverse tracks, a seamless soundscape that represents his arrival as one of the most relevant techno producers of this time.
