Joris Voorn Presents…….

Ever since his first EP “muted trax pt.1” on Keynote followed by a hugely successful track “Incident” on the Sino label, Joris Voorn has been on the forefront of the Dutch techno movement. However it was the “A dedicated mind” that really gained Voorn a global success. Now with two artist albums “Future History” on Sino and “From a deep place” on Green under his belt as well as own record label Rejected ( founded with Edwin Oosterwal) Voorn is one of the most recognized names in the industry.

This time Voorn brings us an exclusive short interview with Lauhaus by the man himself ahead of his 7 hour set on the 29th of October in the Box of the Ministry of Sound. Ministry of Sounds turned 20 this year and alongside its global tour continues to bring only the best names in house music. Aside from Voorn the other artists showcasing on the night include Dutch Lauhaus (Intacto), Kabale und Liebe (Soweso) and Anton Piete (Rejected) playing at 103 and UK’s own Deepmilo (Cubism) in the Baby Box.
