Joris Voorn, a leading candidate for Essential Mix of the Year (that may or may not be the author’s opinion), put together a mix of his favorite tracks of 2015, spanning across house, techno, deep house, and a few more genres for good measure. And, as Joris notes, these “aren’t just the hits;” he really is taking you on a journey through his year and not a crowd-pleasing best-of compilation. It’s refreshing, not unlike his cohesive and tight performance at Freaky Deaky in Chicago the past October. As promising a year as 2015 was for the Dutch producer, I would anticipate his upward trajectory continuning well into 2016.

(edit: Oddly, the track was taken down from SoundCloud, at the same time a playlist with his 2013 & 2014 mixes were added. I’ll paste that below, in hopes that he uploads his 2015 mix at some point and adds it to the playlist. In the meantime, you can hear an unofficial upload on Mixcloud here.)
