Julian Jeweil returns to Drumcode for his first EP in two years with the six-tracker ‘Boreal’. The Frenchman has been a member of the extended Drumcode family since 2017 when he debuted with the ‘Rolling’ EP. Since then, highlights have included playing main stage at Drumcode Festival and dropping the ‘Transmissions’ album in 2019.
His ‘Boreal’ EP marks his fifth outing on the imprint. The title track aims to strike the sweet spot between euphoria and melancholy, as airy pads and stirring waves of melody feature.
‘Time’ is a track built around a steely industrial backbone and could be suitable for various sets. ‘Reverse’ is a low-slung track that builds up energy throughout.
‘Cosmos’ is a possibly peak-timer and sees Jeweil deliver functional techno with a trippy extra-terrestrial edge.
‘System’ is a jacking production, led by shuffling beats and a persistent vox aimed for sweaty dancefloor moments.
The EP rounds out with ‘Minuit’, a driving cut with a melodic core that reinforces the Frenchman’s production abilities.
It’s out 18 March.
