His Spirit All Around
Shaping The Future
Come To Play With Us
Stronger Than Him
Belgium-based French producer, DJ and Initial Berlin label owner Julian Muller has been slowly making his mark on the contemporary Techno scene over the past few years. Muller initially stepped into the limelight as one half of 90 Process alongside Hadone, with releases on Pushmaster Discs and 10 Pills Mate before going solo and delivering material for the likes of Arts Collective, Blue Hour, Bipolar Disorder and of course Lobster Theremin which will release his inaugural long player here.
Across the ‘Playing With The Devil’ LP Muller delivers his signature high octane aesthetic, fusing raw energetic rhythms with ethereal synth work and rave-leaning influence.
Tracks like ‘His Spirit All Around’, ‘Not Afraid’ and ‘Inner Fire’ all perfectly showcase Julian’s influence from early Hardcore, Trance and Rave music while contributions like opening cut ‘Final Devolution’, ‘Shaping The Future’ and ‘Leaving Earth’ edge towards a softer, more musical side with hints of Detroit Techno and early 2000’s IDM.
Muller also explores more glitched out electronica styles with choppy breaks, baroquely evolving synth melodies and cinematic soundscapes ebbing and flowing throughout ‘Come To Play With Us’ and ‘Eternal Damnation’. All in all resulting in a complete long player perfectly encapsulating Muller broad sonic palette.
‘Playing With The Devil’ LP drops Friday 10th September, via Lobster Theremin.
