Minimal Soul Recordings Artists: Orlando Voorn & Computer Controlled Oct 22 @ ReBar

For a Weeknight this is going to be one crazy evening of World class techno!
both of the headliners are living here in Seattle now, but have been in the techno biz for combined total of over 40 years!!!
Incredible…

Orlando Voorn
Night Vision, Triangle.Records, Minimalsoul,
As one of the first Dutch musicians to establish a vital connection between Detroit and Amsterdam, Orlando Voorn has long been recognized as one of the Netherland’s most original and inventive producers in the world of electronic dance music.Voorn began djing at the tender age of 12 and went on to win the Dutch DMC DJ Championships in 1986 with his own characteristic blend of hiphop and electro. Towards the end of the eighties he acquired his first sequencer, packed away his turntables and turned his hand to producing.

 

Following a series of dancefloor tracks recorded for the now defunct Lower East Side Records under the monniker of Frequency in the early nineties (Where Is Your Evidence, Kiss The Sky…), he was introduced to Juan Atkins (Industrial Metal, Game One) and went on to work with both Derrick May and Blake Baxter (as one half of the Ghetto Brothers). Voorn was also recording as Nighttripper (Tone Exploitation), Format (Solid Session – one of the most sought after classic techno records until its re-release in 1998), Basic Bastard, The Living Room, Baruka, Fix (Flash on Kevin Saunderson’s legendary KMS label), Dope Dog, Boy (Paco Di Bango’s World) and Stalker (The Stalker/The Riderman)… Many of these tracks can be heard on the double cd Best of Nightvision.

Having made his mark producing his own vision of techno, ambient and hiphop and adamantly sidestepping genre limitations thus far, Voorn’s announcement that his “Redeye” album would see a foray into drum’n’bass territory aroused both anticipation and curiosity. While Voorn undoubtedly has an ear for melody, this has always been combined with an innate understanding of the importance of atmosphere and tension in music. Like Squarepusher, Amon Tobin, and Photek, he uses drum’n’bass rhythms to create something beyond pure dance music.


Computer Controlled
Acid All Stars, Communique Records, Minimalsoul

Larry, Computer Controlled, DJ AcidTed, DJ Frantik. So many names, not enough Acid?!? Born right here in the Midwest, the birthplace of Acid House music no less. Larry is one of a few Acid men still preaching the holy Acid gospel. Whether on stage as a DJ/Live PA for the past 13 years, bringing acid to the masses, or in the studio creating his various releases over the past 9, Larry has made a major contribution to Midwest Electronic Music. Now standing alongside his longtime idols Woody McBride, Hyperactive, etc., with his own international releases on Acid Revolt Unit France, Acid Jack Records Germany, Communique’ Records, Napalm Enema Recordings, Alien Imprint, Urbanground Records, Primal Instinct Recordings, as well as Remixes and his various collaboration projects (Acid Pranksters w/Poor Boy Rich and AcidHazard W/PacoDebongo), there seems to be no end in site, nor, limit to what this man is capable of.
