Orlando Voorn is one of the first European musicians to establish a vital link with Detroit, and since the end of the 80s has proven himself as one of the most original and inventive producers of electronic music. It’s an understatement to say we’re honoured to have him on Burek’s 20th release.
The EP consists of 5 tracks and, perhaps unsurprisingly for a producer with more than 30 years worth of releases and more projects than you can remember, it touches on many colours of house music. From first to last second, this record moves from old funk samples to shades of early Detroit futurism in a brilliantly executed dance floor manner. Orlando’s “Soul Society EP” respectfully nods to genre’s roots while keeping focus firmly on the future.

Burek family welcomes Detroit house don Javonntte into their circle with four infectious house bangers spread across the whole spectrum of the genre. This record has something for each part of the night, from the easy mood setting vibes to soulful bangers and straight up jacking peak time tracks that will make you sweat.
‘Tomorrow’, the opening cut, is the best example of the latter and the track’s vocal sample “strictly underground” is well earned. This pure head-bang house track will give you a run for your money. A side is concluded with ‘Journey’, a proper soulful house track which keeps all of its energy in spite of a slightly more subtle approach.
No One Like You’ is the first one on the flip and is a prime example of just how much soul and depth can a house banger have and Javonntte excels here both as a producer and a vocalist. Closing track ‘Enter The Disco’ is a slower, disco-sampled jam, perfect for that in-between time in the club when the action’s about to happen.
