We talked to Tim Andresen (What Happens) who answered some questions about the Joris Voorn event:

HMWL: What was your idea when you booked Joris Voorn?

Tim: Over the years I have been working closely with his management (Club Class) on other bookings and also productions/remixwork back in the days so I have had a good relationship with them. I’m also a friend of Nic Fanciulli whom I’ve played with a few times and as we all know, him and Joris are close and form a b2b duo from time to time. Therefore we looked into the option of getting Joris to Copenhagen. Been trying forclose to 2,5 years to make it happen and now we finally made it.

HMWL: How is your gut feeling about Joris Voorn coming to Culture Box for the first time?

Tim: Looking much forward to it. His profile has exploded over the past years with gigs at festivals and headline spots on all the biggest clubs across the Globe. So we’re proud we’re able to get him to our intimate surroundings of Culture Box.

HMWL: What can we expect of the event?

Tim: It’s certainly gonna be very busy indeed. Joris is also one of the DJs and producers, who actually stand out as both and is creative in what he does. So I’m expecting a special night with an atmosphere second to none and new music mixed with a couple of classics which has been some kind of a trademark for him.
