A longtime staple of the Ovum roster, D’Julz returns with his fifth release on the label the “Dive” EP.

Our great friend has been busy of late, successfully building, A&Ring and releasing on his incredible Bass Culture imprint. He has also been prolific on the remix front with reworks on Oslo, Rekids, Dessous, Soma, and Ovum.

His latest Ovum release opens with the title track, Dive. Deep, brooding and loaded with bulbous bass throbs throughout, this atmospheric techno cut with its rasping hi-hats and marching drum-line is not one for the feint of heart.

Ramping things up on the flip is the glorious Self Construction, with its warm bassline, euphoric synth riff, groove-inducing stabs and bubbling melody, D’Julz delivers a perfect DIY soundtrack.

Also included is an exclusive Dub mix of Self Construction which takes us deeper with its spritely key melody.
