ROBOTS FINAL BLOWOUT:
ROBOTS have continuously fought against all living things to create a peaceful machine dominated world for 3 + years, and on December 20th 2007, ROBOTS will have their last stand. U.R.A. members have strategically infiltrated the human enemy compounds, and now the ROBOTS Evil Leader gives the final order, “execute sequence directive 1”. After 140 parties, the ROBOTS FINALE is here. To ignite the fuse, two special guests Chris Liebing and Joris Vorn will join ROBOTS residents Nick AC, Bill Patrick, and Dennis Rodgers to make sure ROBOTS go out with a BANG!
CHRIS LIEBING: (CLR Recordings/Spinclub)
It's no overstatement to say that Chris Liebing is one of the biggest and brightest stars of European Techno, and he is in fact confirmed year by year in the DJ Mag list of Top djs of the world. From early beginnings in the late 80s, working at seminal label Eye-Q, Chris soon started a busy career in club promotion, djing and production. In the early 90s, a prestigious DJ residency at the Omen club in Frankfurt, his expert programming and his succesful releases on his 'Fine Audio Recordings' label, put him firmly on the map of the best electronic dance music. In the mid 90s, his popularity grew bringing further opportunities: a weekly radio show, a new club residency at U60311 and the set up of his new label CLR (and sub labels Clretry, CLAU, Stigmata and Soap). At the beginning of the new millennium, a new successful challenge has been the collaboration with the experimental techno producer Speedy J. Both artists, in fact, were eager to join forces and play shows which were "dynamic, varied and adventurous and able to keep the crowds attention throughout the entire set". Their 12" for the Collabs 300 series and then the album METALISM, both on Novamute, are among the best techno releases of recent years. For the past two summers, ROBOTS Nick AC has been a resident at Chris Liebing’s Spinclub residency in Ibiza where Chris not only plays, 4 to the floor no-nonsense techno, but also bridges the gap between the minimal and pounding techno spheres perfectly!
Joris Voorn: & JORIS VOORN (Sino/Green/Sound Architecture)
His first two productions on the Dutch label “Keynote” named “Muted Trax pt.1 and pt.2” were a success and got extremely good critics nationally and more important internationally.
End 2003 ‘Lost memories Pt.1’ was released on Technasia’s SINO label, and will be followed up by ‘Lost memories Pt.2’ may 2004 containing two killer tracks already been played by many.. [Clarke, Garnier, Deetron, Technasia… check the review in the next issue of Mixmag Magazine].
Next to the first two releases of our “Sound Architecture Records” label there will be new material released on Transmat, Keynote and his debut album on SINO [end of summer].
As a deejay Joris has been around for a while, spinning since 1997 in different clubs nationwide. Besides doing his ‘high energy’ live sets Joris loves dj’ing as well, playing a wide range of techno and house with his own remark. Never boring and always innovating because that’s his nature.
In 2004 Joris performed live at the famous Tresor Club in Berlin,Awakenings Festival in Amsterdam, The Loft in Barcelona and the Movement Festival in Detroit and Kozzmozz in Gent Belgium.
As his Alter ego Dark Science he produced "The real issue" on Sound Architecture records including remixes from Deetron and Alexander Kowalski.
His first release ‘Muted Trax pt 1' on Dutch label Keynote was well received and picked up on by the likes of Laurent Garnier and Carl Craig. He followed this success with his first release on Sino last December, ‘Lost Memories Pt.1' which caused a stir amongst the dance community and made Joris a recognised name.
If ‘Lost Memories Pt 1' suggested Joris was a true talent, then Pt 2 in the series confirmed it. The piano filled ‘Incident' charted in almost every dance magazine of worth, made No. 1 in Mixmag's Techno singles, was playlisted by John Peel and was championed by none other than Carl Cox.
Whilst the two 12's that have preceded ‘Future History' do feature in part on the album, do not fear. This is not just another compilation of tunes built for the dance floor and then stuck onto CD in the hope of making some extra cash. This is an album in the true sense of the word.
‘Future History' demonstrates Joris' talent as a musician and album crafter, along side his already proven skills as a techno producer. Trying to name standout tracks is not only made difficult by the sheer number of them, but is also missing the point.
Joris Voorn has made an album that draws on over three years work and seamlessly blends techno, breaks and electro into a 77minute soundscape that represents his coming of age. This young Dutchman has everything it takes to become huge and ‘Future History' could well be the album that takes him there.
