Joran van Pol caught DJ Mag’s attention after amassing a discography with releases on labels including Richie Hawtin’s Minus and Dubfire’s Sci+Tec, as well as Rejected and Ideal Audio.
After Hawtin and Dubfire both adopted his ‘Faded’ track as a regular starting point for their sets early in his career, van Pol’s gone on to have a huge 2016. Spinning at Awakenings and Warehouse Elementenstraat in Amsterdam, he’s also dropped his ‘Awakening’ EP as the second release on his own FADE label, which has been tearing techno dancefloors apart this autumn. Not bad for a DJ/producer still in his mid-twenties.
For his Fresh Kicks mix van Pol has turned in an hour of no-nonsense techno, which includes two of his own productions, as well as material from Adam Beyer & Joseph Captiati, Anna, Cirez D, Keith Carnal, Julian Jeweil and Charlotte De Witte.
