JULIAN JEWEIL Boreal Pt 1 DRUMCODE
Julian Jeweil returns to Drumcode for his first EP in two years with the inspired six-tracker ‘Boreal’ split across two records.
The Frenchman has been a vital member of the extended Drumcode family since 2017 when he debuted with the fantastic ‘Rolling’ EP. Since then, highlights have included playing main stage at Drumcode Festival and dropping the critically acclaimed ‘Transmissions’ album in 2019.
His ‘Boreal’ EP marks his fifth outing on the imprint. Part I kicks off with the title track, a truly special record, striking the sweet spot between euphoria and melancholy, as airy pads and stirring waves of melody stamp it with a timeless feel.
On the flip, ‘Time’ is a propulsive weapon built around a steely industrial backbone and is a necessary tool for every set with ‘Reverse’ closing out part one – a low-slung beast that builds up intergalactic energy throughout.
