“When I first started listening to electronic (dance) music more than 20 years ago, it was like opening Pandoras Box. I instantly loved house and techno, but also Drum & Bass, IDM, Broken Beats, Acid, Ambient and everything in between. As my DJ career developed, I became known for playing house and techno, but within my sets always explored the full Spectrum of sounds and styles within those genres. Up to this day I am fascinated by dance music in all its colourful variations, and through Spectrum, I hope to share this love of music with you”, Joris Voorn said.
Joris has been teasing the Spectrum concept on his social channels using images from a special photoshoot that he commissioned from leading Dutch photographer Jos Kottmann during ADE, where he invited fans from all around the world on Facebook to come and have their picture taken by Jos for use in the artwork for the night. Jos will be joining Joris at each Spectrum event bringing his photo studio and offering clubbers the choice to get involved in this ever expanding interactive photography project.
