Iuly.B - Dimensions LP [Adam’s Bite]

feeder sound premiere: Iuly.B – Dimensions LP [Adam’s Bite]

IULY.B delivers his debut album ‘Dimensions’ via Switzerland’s Adam‘s Bite in April 2024, comprised of eleven originals from the Romanian artist.

Across the past decade Iasi, Romania’s IULY.B has steadily stamped his mark on the underground scene through his releases on the likes of Metereze, Constant Sound, Visionquest and Infuse among others. Here he marks a milestone in his career, delivering his debut long player for the Swiss imprint Adam’s Bite.

Across the eleven-track ‘Dimensions’ album, IULY.B embraces the long player format to deliver a psychedelia-infused range of material in his signature, raw, subtly nuanced and hypnotic style. Opener ‘Seagulls Passing By’ perfectly sets the tone with field recordings from the beach, breezy pads and a shuffled drum groove. The project then shifts up gears continually with ‘Altered Memories’ rolling rhythm, choppy bass and sweeping synths, the aptly titled ‘Bump’s gritty bass stabs, tripped-out vocals and crunchy drums.

‘Aurora’ then drifts back into deeper realms with entrancing atmospherics, skippy percussion and acid-tinged synth licks before shifting straight back to raw dance floor-ready material with a murky bass groove, skippy drums and dubbed-out vocals. ‘Ronnie’s Squat’ sees IULY blur the lines between House and Techno next with a gritty acid-laced bass hook, swinging drums and bubbling synth flutters.

The story continues with ‘Dark Safari’ and its fluttering low-end pulsations, crisp percussion and tension-building synth swells before ‘Variations’ heads back to the roots of Dub Techno, traversing through seven minutes of swirling dub echoes, hypnotic chimes and muted drums.

Between Worlds’ sees IULY once again moving in a new direction with saturated electro-leaning rhythms, elongated subs and resonant synth licks before the mesmerizing textures of ‘Atlantis’ merge an amalgamation of melodies with a sturdy rhythmic foundation.
Track ten ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ then begins to wind down the project with an electronica-leaning aesthetic, bringing together ethereal pads with plucked synth melodies and a chugging stab sequence before ‘Leaving Out’ concludes the project, a subtly unfurling journey through cascading atmospherics, robotic vocal chants and soft, broken percussion.
