Julian Jeweil returns to Drumcode with ‘Boreal EP’
The stunning six-track extended player ‘Boreal‘ by long-standing French techno icon Julian Jeweil is out now on Drumcode Records.
Boreal marks Julian’s fifth musical outing on the legendary Stockholm-based label, as he returns armed with interim releases on the likes of FORM Music, Filth on Acid, and Tronic, to name a few.
Julian’s uniquely underground treatment across the package is wonderfully dark and hypnotic, engaging the listener from the very first kick drum. Julian is known for his experimental soundscapes and hard-hitting atmospheres. The title track is a truly special record that hits the sweet spot between euphoria and melancholy, with airy pads and stirring waves of melody imbuing it with a timeless feel. Continuing on a theme, the follow-up, Time, is a propulsive weapon built around a steely industrial backbone.
I am very excited about ‘Boreal’, because it really reflects my personal vision of techno music. I am so happy to see it released on Drumcode, a label that I respect very much. They always give me carte blanche when it comes to producing and I am blessed – Julian Jeweil
Reverseis a low-slung beast that builds intergalactic energy throughout, while Cosmossees Jeweil deliver functional, powerful techno with a trippy extra-terrestrial edge. System, the EP’s penultimate offering, is a jacking slice of heat led by shuffling beats and a persistent vox primed for sweaty dancefloor moments, before Minuit– a polished driving cut with a sleek melodic core that reinforces the Frenchman’s breadth in the studio – rounds out the generous EP.
