Following an impressive, self released debut EP, St Juliens’ latest release ‘A16’ features a collaboration with hip hop influenced artist Budgie on the track ‘Evenbud’.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 03 September 2015
Ok, so we’re in the chicken shop, the guy behind the counter is fed up and wants his money. “U gonna pay for that m8?” Funkineven looks back his compadre, opens his mouth and out spills not words, but the detuned gloss of a sawtooth synth. His punctuation snaps like 808 snares as he reaches for his $5 at an even 112bpm, the shake of his hand sprawling the border between Detroit and hip-hop. “Man I’m glad I changed my name so I can go to get chicken in peace again,” he chirps, encircled by oblivious fans clad in Funkineven t-shirts. He exits onto the street and everyone starts dancing vigorously to the ‘Pulse’, the arcade-style grooves reaching boss level intensity, with grainy drums and soaring synth arps bouncing the crowd.
Back into the car, he settles into a slow roll down the boulevard - prime speed for an eating. While munching, the neon lights’ afterglow plays on the bonnet forming multicoloured synthetic dances to finish off the evening. What a night. What, a, night.
