Sander van Doorn is on a roll, and his new track with Julian Jordan ‘Kangaroo’ will surely fall upon welcome ears when he (likely) plays it during Electric Zoo. High pitched synths are the hallmark of the production until robotic vocals scream ‘rock the beat’ and the track launches into a slightly glitchy almost dubstep influenced chorus that wouldn’t be out of place at a Skrillex show. It’s hard to believe that Jordan is only a teenager, but SvD is right to see something in the youngster, as he already has impressive releases under his belt considering his tender age.
‘Nothing Inside,’ for those of you who haven’t been to a house show in the past two months, is the biggest new tune from Sander van Doorn with vocals from Mayaeni. Emotive tracks with big female vocals aren’t anything new, but Mayaeni’s words are designed specifically for the production and thus have an advantage over all of the Adele and Florence and the Machine remixes.
Coming off hot from his original track ‘Oxford‘ with TV Noise, Julian Jordan is perhaps a prodigy in his own right. Heavily supported by SvD, his remix of ‘Nothing Inside’ displays his already recognizable style first hand. Nothing was needed to enhance the track, but Jordan makes it his own.
Young bloods Julian Jordan and TV Noise have teamed up for yet another great Spinnin’ Records track. With so much young Dutch talent releasing records on the label, Spinnin’ has is a formidable entity in the world of house music. Jordan was recently named by legend Sander van Doorn as his favorite rising producer, and Jordan will be releasing his own remix of ‘Nothing Inside‘ June 4.
In addition, ‘Oxford’ has been racking up support from other producers, including a nod from Gareth Emery by way of his inclusion of the track in his latest weekly podcast and a spin from Pete Tong during his Essential Selection at the beginning of April.
This is a hard hitting electro house track in the Dutch tradition, and the young team does it well. It’s easy to see why SvD is such a firm supporter of Jordan. Only good things in store for these guys.
Julian Jordan & TV Noise â€“ Oxford
Today bring’s a new preview from Julian Jordan and TV Noise. ‘Oxford’ will be released May 14 from Dutch powerhouse label Spinnin’ Records.
You may recall that Sander van Doorn has been quoted as saying that Jordan is the 16 year old DJ that you must know during an interview at Ultra. Jordan released ‘Rock Steady‘ mid-March and the track has been getting heavy live play from a roster of top producers, including Sander himself.
‘Oxford’ is a serious track that the young producing collaboration really hit the mark on. Look forward to the full release of this classic Dutch house sample.
Julian Jordan is coming up with the new wave of young producers. Before Pete Tong introduced the track during his Essential selections show, he noted that the Madeon-phenomenon has now posed the question – how young is too young to produce? The answer, if Jordan (aged 16) is an indication, is there is no such minimum. Unlike drinking in the States, you don’t need to have an age requirement to create great music. Hurrah!.
Previewed after its feature on BBC1, today the full version was released on Spinnin’ Records. Introing with a strong, distorted violin chord-esque bassline, the track quickly transitions into a pounding electro-house banger with a Dutch spin.
Julian Jordan â€“ Rock Steady
Julian Jordan is but a 16 year old producer hailing from Apeldoorn in the Netherlands (shocking!) who was yesterday supported by Pete Tong during his Essential selection show. Self touted as a purveyor of rough beats and big progressive tunes. ‘Rock Steady,’ played yesterday by Tong, definitely falls into these categories. Slated for release March 19 by Spinnin’ Records, the distorted instrumentals of the track, draped over soothing reverberations create a massive, banging anthem in the vein of Nicky Romero or dare we say, Afrojack? Look for this young Dutchman to rise quickly.
