Review: Although better known for being one of the few European producers to fully embrace the early ethos of Detroit techno, Orlando Voorn's first love was actually electro. He's been returning to those roots a little in recent years, and here delivers another fine EP of bustling, beatbox-driven cuts as the Stalker (an alias he last used 21 years ago). There's much to enjoy throughout, from the chiming synthesizer melodies, wiggly acid bass and body-popping beats of "Electrocute" and warped electrofunk shuffle of "Tech The Soul", to the razor-sharp, high register acid lines, deep space chords and booming bass of "Solar System". We're not sure whether these tracks are brand new or rediscovered archive gems; either way, the EP is a thrilling blast from the past.
Review: House/Techno legend Orlando Voorn is next up on California's Roundabout Sounds label. This vinyl only release contains 3 tracks, each with it's distinct flavor and time/place on the dancefloor. You may know by now the quality to expect from Roundabout Sounds...and this EP keeps the bar raised high. This is the 15th installment of Roundabout Sounds that's run by Joe 'Babylon' Marougi, co-founder of Plug Research back in 1994.
