Taras Van De Voorde – Chasing Seasons


CHasing.jpgLabel: SuaraScore: 8/10

Taras van de Voorde has long harbored a propensity for eclectic and impressionable cuts. His discography has seen him turn up on myriad seminal imprints, with the likes of EC, Rebirth, Defected and Wolfskuil all testament to both his production nous and his ear for diverse wares.

The latest label that can be added to that list is Suara, with van de Voorde endearing himself to the Spanish label here – and a slew of others – thanks to the wonderfully crafted sounds of the Chasing Seasons EP. Opening track ‘Chasing Autumns‘ emphatically tells us that the producer’s not interested in wasting our time. Indeed, it gets down to work almost immediately, with its manic bassline the cue for an almost 7-minute workout that’s every bit as magical as it is almost gracefully relentless.

The second of the two originals is ‘Chasing Winters‘. Stylistically, it’s not a million miles away from ‘Chasing Autumns‘, with only a vaguely more ‘techno’ edge separating the two. Perfect should you be playing your trade in both Berghain and Panorama Bar this weekend. The final call is reserved for Pitto, who turns in a respectful remix of the latter. Mystical and carefree, it maintains the pronounced chords but jettisons much of what’s left in favour for a more shrewd approach. A gentle remix that nods its cap to the original – and a more than worthy track with which to sign off on proceedings with. 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
