Internationally recognised for adding a French flavour to Amsterdams talented tech house generation, Parisian born Julien Chaptal soon settled down easily in the Dutch city with the charts becoming his second home.
His debut album Tokens [Remote Area] took the techno scene by storm with its collection of dancefloor-oriented grooves and his follow up EP Mamdaye bridged the divide between classic house and modern tech house with its lead track becoming a mainstay for underground house spinners in 2009.
Continuously inspiring the music scene with his fresh take on Tech House has not only ensured a glittering array of releases, but has also led him to remix for heavyweights such as Underworld and Jimmy Somerville. Last year he shared his Garden Secrets on Intacto Records, so were excited hes back to reveal more of his talents with us!
ELEPHANTS ON A STRING: Percussive tingles and warm cascading grooves masterfully mesh to give the brazen trumpeted chords a smooth soundscape to splash on. They say elephants never forget, but weve heard elephants on a string cannot be forgotten.
SEEM PHONY: Perky, punchy beats define the tempo while the layered melodies of glistening chords and chocolate rich vocals weave a musical tapestry that drives you deep and then raises your mood high above the feel good peaks.
TOP DOWN TOOL: Galloping chunks of bass riffs injected with electric jabs mash seamlessly to create this mesmerising tech house roller.
