Joran van Pol
Imagine the two heavyweights of electronic music both wanting to sign your debut EP, when you’re only 22 years old. Yes, this dream come true actually happened to Joran van Pol when he found out Richie Hawtin as well as Dubfire were equally impressed by his music. As a result, Joran consecutively signed EP’s to Richie’s Minus and Dubfire’s SCI+TEC. This all happened shortly after Joran’s track ‘Untitled 2’ was signed to Minus12 and appeared on Richie Hawtin’s MixMag cover mount compilation.
Both Hawtin & Dubfire open their sets with Joran’s instant classic ‘Faded’ on a regular basis and the list of well-established dj’s and producers (whom he considers to be his peers) that support him continues to grow. He keeps on sharing his music with people like Joris Voorn and many others, who all recognize his talent immediately.
But it’s not only because of his efforts in the studio Joran van Pol is the one to watch. Also when it comes to dj’ing, Joran van Pol shows us time and time again he knows his stuff. Whether he is performing at Awakenings or in an intimate club in Paris, Joran always knows the right records to pull out of his bag to get the dance-floor going in exactly the direction he wants it to: ecstatic and longing for more when he plays the last track.
Surely all this praise and attention for Joran van Pol is not without reason. Extraordinary talent when it comes to dj’ing, astonishing production skills and perhaps most importantly, his positive attitude are all things Joran has got going for him. Exactly these qualities are probably why he finds himself taken under the wings of Dubfire and Richie Hawtin. It won’t be long now until Joran van Pol takes the electronic music scene by storm himself.
It is safe to say 2013 will be Joran van Pol’s definite breakthrough year, so don’t let Joran out of your sight if you want to join him on his adventure. Read more
