While his Purple Haze project may have been all guns blazing recently, Sander van Doorn’s output under his own name is still rolling on the regular. His latest opus: an addictive rework of his 2007 monster, Riff, brought up-to-date alongside the talented David Tort.
Considerably slowing the pace of his tech trance monster, Sander’s remix of Riff with Tort boils down the essence of the track and brings it bang up-to-date. Wasting no time in getting down to business, the duo launch us into a filtered, distorted acid arpeggio that mimics the original ‘riff’, with a huge snare build and pitch risers building the energy. We slam down into a chugging groove wherein the acid growls harder and evolves as we move towards the break. Buzzing trancey arpeggios filter up and then fade back down as the build begins again, dizzying us with its maniacal energy.
This one was built for the stadiums, arenas and big festival stages. As you can see from this video on his Facebook page, the reactions have been huge. His collaborator on the track, David Tort, is one of Spain’s biggest DJ/producers, with releases on Spinnin’ Records, Axtone Records and Musical Freedom amongst others.
Sander recently embarked on his Purple Haze world tour, kicking off in Liverpool, UK with a seriously impressive audio-visual hybrid show. Dates for 2018 will soon be announced so keep your eyes peeled if you want to see his new creation in action.
