Dutch producer Taras van de Voorde has been a man on a mission for some time now. His always detailed and cleverly nuanced productions have endeared him to a number of seminal imprints, with the likes of EC, Rebirth, Defected, Wolfskuil and Mood Music all playing host to his quality-strewn sounds. His latest EP, meanwhile, sees the Rotterdam native crop up on Coyu's much respected Suara imprint, with the excellent Chasing Seasons a fascinating insight into the producer's current sound agenda.
Kicking off the EP is 'Chasing Winters', a track that serves up a sneak peak into the producer's ominous side. The bells and the strings are crafted on a beguiling – albeit still meticulous tip – and by the time it finds its footing, it explodes in a wonderful kaleidoscope of colour.
Fellow Dutch producer Pitto (the brains you might remember, behind emphatic numbers such as 'Feelin' and 'Sexvibe') turns in a shrewd and respectful remix of the latter, and it's once that calls on some cannily placed percussion, a series of simmering snares and a spoken-word vocal that helps give the track an added momentum.
'Chasing Autumns', on the other hand, is a slice of bumping tech-house that reminds us of the colder climes that are now on the agenda. Fortunately, however, it drags the listener to a warmer place; a place that's brimming with delectable, delicate piano chords and fierce dancefloor momentum aplenty. Make no mistake about it: this is house music of a certain personality.
If you're after something a little bit different with which to work the floor, van de Voorde's latest is sure to strike all the right notes. With vintage aplomb.
