2017 has proved to be a monumental year for Joris with the launch of his expansive Spectrum concept. Encompassing club nights, festival stages, a globally broadcast radio show, and a photography series, it’s his chance to show off his wider musical tastes with extended sets and his skills as a curator. Taking in events at landmark venues like Amsterdam’s De Marktkantine and London’s Village Underground, it represents a big new step in his career that is gaining plaudits far and wide. It’s also the year he lands as a resident at Hï Ibiza for their In The Dark sessions on Thursdays, while he also plays several dates across the road for ANTS at Ushuaïa. He also continues his lifetime residency for Amsterdam’s Awakenings, playing special vinyl-only sets to celebrate their 20th anniversary. In short, you’ll find him at many of the world’s biggest techno destinations.
Another milestone year was had by Joris Voorn in 2018, with two sold-out headline shows during the most pivotal electronic industry moment of the year, Amsterdam Dance Event, along with successfully expanding his Spectrum brand into territories such as North and South America with sell-out shows, building the bridge between his firmly established position in Europe and farther afield, whilst also delivering his weekly Spectrum radio show in now over 20 countries worldwide, making Joris Voorn and Spectrum a truly global electronic music brand.
2019 sets the bar even higher with the long-awaited launch of his brand new, and fourth artist album, due for release on his own freshly rebranded musical imprint ‘Spectrum’ (previous ‘Green’) in November. Many special album moments are on the way including a collaboration with legendary dance outfit Underworld that will be one of the lead singles. The first release of the album was the follow up to his most successful single to date, “Ringo”, on the aptly titled “Ryo” (named after his second son). A string of solid Ibiza season dates ensue, added to his own stage hosts at festivals such as Awakenings and Tomorrowland along with some big look plays for Drumcode Festival, RESISTANCE Miami, Sydney and Melbourne, which all continue to maintain Joris’ positions in the highest echelons of the techno industry for the year ahead.
Outside of Ibiza, Joris is a regular fixture at all of the key clubs and festivals on the global underground circuit performing multiple weekly shows at events across Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Colombia, Israel, Detroit, Chicago and New York. These include clubbing institutions such as fabric (London), Output (New York), Womb (Tokyo), Fuse (Brussels), Faust (Paris), Warehouse Project (Manchester), elrow (Barcelona) fabrik (Madrid), Zouk (Singapore) and Spazio 900 (Rome). As far as festivals are concerned Joris has a long-running relationship with both the Awakenings and Strafwerk/DGTL events series in his native The Netherlands while further afield he can be found playing at festivals such as Parklife (Manchester), Movement (Detroit) Tobacco Dock (London), Ultra (Miami), Mysteryland (Amsterdam), Hideout (Croatia) and Electric Zoo (New York).
