Imagine: Both Richie Hawtin and Dubfire want to sign your debut release. This was the position for Joran van Pol when his first productions hit the scene a few years back. It was the track ‘Faded’ that opened doors for the new producer and soon he was signed to both MINUS and SCI+TEC, quickly drawing the attention of other techno heavy-weights; Oliver Huntemann and Joris Voorn. With further releases on Voorn’s label Rejected Joran reached out to a new audience, expanding his fanbase and setting the stage for what was to come.
These releases also allowed a rapid transition from the Studio 80 backroom to the big stages of Awakenings, Tomorrowland and Space Ibiza. His fans come not only from his native Holland, but are a global audience who enjoy his techno sets with a minimalist aesthetic. Currently Joran is making waves with his fresh imprint ‘FADE’, releasing his own tracks with remixes from the likes of Luigi Madonna and Egbert. Within just a few short years, Joran van Pol has put himself on the international map as a key part of the techno community.
