In spite of a torrential downpour that fell into Thursday night, DC nightlife flocked to Lima Lounge to see Dutch tech house superstar Joris Voorn in action. Currently holding the #1 track on Beatport’s tech house charts and #8 overall with his “Together,” as well as the #2 tech house track for his edit of Mark Fanciulli’s “The Tide,” Voorn’s soulful set had the crowd working up a groovy sweat.

After a solid opening set by Omid S., Voorn flooded Lima’s sound system with down-tempo beats and funky melodies. In addition to spinning his recent releases, the crowd responded well when he dropped Maya Jane Coles’ “What They Say,” a remix of Armand Van Helding’s Funk Phenomena, and Supernova’s “Energizer.” Also be sure to check out the video of “UnTITLED dub Vol. 1” aka Goldfrapp’s Believer (Joris Voorn Dub). His closing trap, an edit of a Nightmare’s On Wax track, was unreal!

Although a relatively underground figure in the electronic dance music scene until just last year, Voorn is truly blowing up. Grabbing the #88 slot in DJ Mag’s most recent rankings and bound to climb as his music continues to reach mainstream listeners, Voorn is bound to explode.

Big thanks to the DC nightlife faithful who came out to Lima Lounge to send him off on his tour of Europe and Brazil this summer!
