D’Julz’s ‘Ze Box’ Ep, his 2014 debut for Robsoul, remains one the labels most popular to date. Now, as the Frenchman and renowned House luminary embarks on what is already a landmark year personally; he returns to the label to follow up last years Edits outing with a sultry new selection of tracks on the ‘Foxxy’ Ep.
2017 signals the twentieth anniversary of D’Julz’s seminal Bass Culture club night at Rex Club in Paris. A celebration of a party born from frustration with his City’s scene, it went on to become one of the longest standing and most respected nights of a generation. Sharing the booth with just one invited artist each night, each playing extended sets, gave the Parisian a perfect outlet for perfecting his craft. Skills honed at those Bass Culture nights not only helped craft an enviable DJ style, but also influenced his talent in both a&r’ing for his Bass Culture record label and the production of his own music.
The Foxxy Ep finds D’Julz in a playful mood. ‘Ze Fox’ opens up with its stretched filters, funky guitar lick and merry vocal. The jittery hats of ‘Big Kid’ follows with its disco loops and sunshine vibe delivering smiles for miles, making you, yeah, feel like a big kid. ’Next’ is the cute little heartbreaker that brings this Foxxy Ep to a close. Its rough, juddering and yet grooving bassline is matched with synth washes, piercing snares and bird calls to create a perfect finale to a perfect EP.
You’ll wanna take her home. Foxxy.
