Joris Voorn knows a thing or two about how to whip up a crowd. For well over a decade now he’s been lighting up Dutch clubs with his boundary-pushing mix of house and techno. Over that time he’s become the biggest name in the Dutch underground having been one ranked as one of Resident Advisor’s top 10 DJs in the world and started his own label, Green records. This summer he’s taking to Ibiza for the season, with gigs across the Island. However, the highlight is sure to be his regular Thursday-night residency at Hi Ibiza’s In The Dark alongside Luciano, Nic Fanciulli, Steve Lawler and Kölsch. The five of them will be taking over the club every week until the end of September alongside a host of techno and house’s finest DJs. If you’re on the white isle at the moment, then you can catch Joris and the rest tonight, if not give his exclusive playlist below a spin to get a taste of what you’re missing.

Paul Simon – ‘Homeless’

“I’m working on a remix for this. A well know classic song by Paul Simon from his Graceland album. The remix is very melodic and almost epic, works great in both rooms at In The Dark.”

Xinobi – ‘Searching For’

“Such an amazing energy in this track, best inspirational vocals since Underground Resistance ‘Transition’.”

Mees Salomé – ‘Equivalence’

“A hidden gem in my sets the last few months. Beautiful melodies. This works at any time in both rooms of In The Dark.”

Redlight – ‘City Jams’

“This year’s piano house tune! Could have been made 25 years ago, but still sounds good today.”

RY X – ‘Beacon (Joris Voorn Remix)’

“For the deeper moments in my sets at In The Dark.”

XXXY – ‘Get Banged [Ten Thousand Yen]’

“Middle of the night ‘what the f#$k was that’ kinda track. Always works!”

Edwin Oosterwal – ‘Bleep’

“Peak-time Chicago house from Amsterdam, for the later hours in the Club room at In The Dark.”

Senzala – ‘Phase’

“Rocking house gem, what more is there to say?”

Sven Tasnadi – ‘Train’

“My favourite tool track this year. Relentless grooves, tech house at it’s best.”

Yotto – ‘Marisa’

“Released on my own Green label, an epic saga for an eyes close and hands in the air moment in the Theatre at In The Dark.”
