When it comes to featuring top talent, we can always count on RL Grime’s imprint Sable Valley to deliver. This next release invites Vancouver’s immensely talented DJ/producer Juelz for his label debut EP, ‘High Octane‘, that is true to the name and nothing short of spectacular.
Fusing sounds across the hip-hop and electronic spectrum, Juelz initially found success on his club hit “Cocaine” which led to collaborations with the likes of josh pan, Falcons, and Promnite. In 2018 he teamed up with bbno$ to release a collaborative EP titled ‘moneytalk‘, and in early 2019, he released his sophomore EP ‘Shanghai Nights‘ on Fool’s Gold Records. Needless to say, Juelz has been on an upwards trajectory for quite some time, and rightfully so landed his third EP with none other than Sable Valley.
The ‘High Octane‘ EP is a genre-transcending blend that offers a variety of sounds; the SSOS-assisted “Drive-By City” is a punishing tour-de-force, “Rendering” is a cinematic trap excursion, and closing cut “Ave Maria” offers etheric bliss. That all goes without mentioning standout singles “Defqon Bounce” and the RL Grime-assisted “Formula“.
We’re thrilled to premiere Juelz’s ‘High Octane’ EP for you here first, listen below!
