FunkinEven Returns as St. Julien
The Apron label head's newest EP under his St. Julien alias will see an official release next month.
Apron label head Steven Julien (better known as FunkinEven) will release a new EP as St. Julien later this spring. Apron started as an outlet for Julian’s own productions, but has expanded to include a corps of likeminded artists such as Seven Davis Jr., Lord Tusk, and new signee Brassfoot; it also scored a top spot in XLR8R‘s roundup of 2014’s best labels. As Resident Advisor reports, Julian has recently taken on production work for hip-hop artists like Earl Sweatshirt and Alchemist, following collaborations with Jay Daniel, Delroy Edwards, and Kyle Hall.
Entitled A16, the new record features a joint track with Budgie, who cropped up on Theo Parrish’s Wildheart imprint in 2014. Julien is also reportedly at work on a FunkinEven full-length, which should arrive sometime this year. A16 lands on May 18, and until then, a stream of EP cut “Evenbud (feat. Budgie)” can be heard here via RA, while the record’s complete tracklist has been posted below.
