Julian – Mind Blowing Thoughts EP [Eliptic]
Bucharest-based Eliptic Records returns with “Mind Blowing Thoughts EP” dispatched by label owner himself, Iulian Ganovici aka Julian. The 12” features four solid minimalistic tracks which already enjoy support from the likes of Petre Inspirescu, Cezar and others. The artwork is designed by Teodor Isfan and perfectly captures the feeling of the release. Founded in 2016 by Julian and Fengda Carissa, the imprint so far collaborated with Timofti, Crihan, ZXC and Mihigh.
From top-notch productions to engaging DJ sets, Julian has always been able to give the crowd exactly what it wants, telling a story made out of exquisite electronic music. Passion, style and attention for every detail are the values that have always characterized him. Aside from his own playground, he published his works with Subtil Records, FarFromNormal, UnN Music, Tooloop Records, Flügel and BP Digital, while his selections were heard in Romania, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Czech Republic and Russia. He also enjoys a residency at Club Guesthouse, one of the most important locations when it comes to house and techno music.
Side A opens with “Reflection”, a hypnotic piece aimed at the dancefloor designed with a repetitive voice in focus, a strong bassline and dark textures. The percussion flows at a steady pace while the background effects spice-up the whole journey. Following, “Outer Limits” goes in the same direction, displaying a more spacious sound and a stripped-down rhythm, completed by a heavily modulated voice that encourages one to “Dream”. On the flipside, we first find “Thoughts Bistro”, a glitchy composition that goes even deeper into the realms of minimal music. The drumming is infused with jagged reverberations and filters as well as with numerous micropatterns, making the track a perfect tool for DJs. Closing the wax, “Sativa” delivers a deep and melodic resonance built with long chilled pads, elegant acoustic hi-hats and cymbals here and there, ideal to enjoy on late night trips.
