Steven Julien
8 Ball

Steven Julien has taken a break from his Funkineven moniker of late to release a few records under his given name. 8 Ball grows the lo-fi boogie style of April’s Bloodline mini-album. While ‘TEER’ is a luscious jam inspired by ‘80s electro and synth-funk, A-sides ‘BLK808’ and ‘POT808’ are both tough drum machine workouts that would sound at home on labels like Central Processing Unit and Super Rhythm Trax.

Steven Julien
Bloodline

Apron Records boss Steven Julien (you’ll probably know him as Funkineven) drops a ‘mini-LP’ in the wake of his 2016 record Fallen. The meaning of Bloodline’s title is manifold, referring to Julien’s family, his musical influences, and the passing of Roland TR-808 creator Ikutaro Kakehashi in April 2017. As such, the six tracks here are built from the legendary drum machine upwards and are topped with 80s jazz-funk keyboards (‘IDK’, ‘Bloodline’) and sticky 303 basslines (‘Roll Of The Dice’).
