JORIS VOORN – DISTRICT SEVEN

JORIS VOORN – DISTRICT SEVEN

As Joris adds the finishing touches to his as-yet-untitled fourth studio album, he looks to momentarily sate our appetites with an exclusive taster and a track that has, in an early incarnation, already won the coveted slot of Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune. A hooky synth riff lies at the heart of District Seven, a track that fizzes and pulses in teasingly equal measures. Pleasuring plump kicks underpin snappy finger clicks as the main refrain filters up from the depths. Evocative vocal samples build the mood as ethereal pads assist the chord progression and a muted bleepy arpeggio completes the melodic meat of the track while light snare roll builds take it to its crescendo. A fine first slice from the mysterious long player and one that leaves us wanting a little bit more Joris! 6* DRW
