Orlando Voorn aka The Living Room is one of the first Dutch musicians to establish a vital connection between Detroit and Amsterdam in the early 90’s. Voorn has long been recognized as one of the Netherland’s most original and ingenious producers in the world of electronic dance music. He began DJing at the early age of 12 years old and later went on to win his first scratch competition at Amsterdam “Club Flora Palace”. Subsequently he made a name for himself under the alias “Frequency” with a classic label known as Lower East Side Records with titles such as “Where is Your Evidence” “Kiss the Sky” and “Industrial Metal”. As a result of these tracks Voorn was introduced to Juan Atkins and they later started to collaborate & produce tracks together at Voorn’s home studio.Soon after they would join forces and produce the well know track called “Game One” which became a classic record on Atkin’s label “Metroplex” and later it reprised on Voorn’s imprint “Nightvision” double CD Compilation 1996. Voorn also did recordings for a legendary Detroit label “KMS” an imprint of Kevin Saunderson using yet another alias known as “Fix” where he created a dance floor destroyer track called “Flash” which remains in many DJ’s crates at this moment. “Flash” became a hit in the Detroit clubs first before the record had broken out internationally. Voorn has a well know history of working with Detroits originator’s including Derrick May’s imprint “Fragile” under yet another alias “Complex” entitled “Midi Merge”. For his latest album under the guise of the Living Room Voorn showcases his more gentle Ambient Techno side on ‘Armchair Education’ Produced,mixed & Arranged by Orlando Voorn Recorded in Amsterdam, Detroit & Seattle.
