Premiere: Joran van Pol – “Eventuate”


Young Dutch DJ/producer Joran van Pol, who has received support by the likes of Richie Hawtin and Dubfire, has developed a sound for himself that’s as singular as a set of fingerprints. And it’s all over his new EP, Exist, due out January 8 on Rejected, the mighty label run by Joris Voorn and Edwin Oosterwal. The three-track release shows how van Pol creates an entire sonic universe with his moody, minimalist aesthetic, where the space around the sounds is sometimes the most important element of all. You can sneak an early peek at part of the record right here; “Eventuate” sometimes makes you feel like you’re underwater, and other times offers up the vibe of a journey into the mind’s eye. Maybe it’s van Pol’s mind, maybe it’s your own, maybe a melding of both—whichever way you look at it, you can still dance to it.
