Julia Govor – United EP [Rhythm Cult]
From military band performer to resident DJ at underground Moscow clubs to Visionquest and Get Physical signee, Julia Govor‘s ascension is truly impressive. Julia has come a long way since playing in a military band and is now a foremost house and techno name who has released on labels like Cocoon, Hypertone and Second State.
She can also be found rocking crowds at the likes of Awakenings, Time Warp, ADE & Sonar often alongside Richie Hawtin, with the core of her sound built around an emotional truth, depth and devotion to seductive rhythms. Fresh from her last release which featured an essential remix from Ricardo Villalobos, Russian artist Julia Govor is back with three more great tracks on the ever excellent Rhythm Cult.
Opening the EP is the immediately absorbing “United“, a deep electronic house tune with a warm bed of crisp, driving beats overlaid with acid twitches and dry claps. It really locks you in and some female musings add a pensive air.
Next is the equally excellent “Morse Code“, an airy and cerebral, super deep roller that is quick and slick and filled with eerie atmospheres. Razor sharp hi-hats cut up the groove, ponderous and hollow bass synths add depth and the whole thing is made for heady backrooms at 4am.
Last of all is the seductive “Parallelepiped“, a quick and clipped deep techno cut that will get you on your toes. Distant synth patters and perfectly programmed, frictionless drums all add up to a steamy and seductive sound.
