NEW SINGLE : Jimi Jules Releases ‘Der Aufstand’ (Innervisions)



“Jules combines a deeply rooted musical sensibility with a knack for creating anthemic atmospheres” Groove.       “An immediate and engaging return Clash

Following the release of his ‘Ham The Monkey’ EP last April, Jimi Jules dropped the razor-sharp ‘My City’s On Fire’ in December, offering a tantalising taster of his upcoming second album, titled ‘+.’ Executively produced by label-boss Dixon, it is set for release on March 25th via Berlin-based Innervisions. The artwork has been designed by iconic graphic designer Trevor Jackson, whose multi-disciplinary work has helped form the identities of musical icons Soulwax and Japanese fashion label Comme des Garcons. January saw the releadse of ‘Burning,’ a personal life-story about communication, equality and compassion, paying homage to a free, spiritual soul. New single ‘Der Aufstand’ was written after the first lcokdown and means ‘revolt’ in Germany. Poverty is the mother of revolution and crime,” says Jules.

Descending from a family of Swiss musicians, Jules has soulful vibrations running through his blood. Early explorations on the trumpet and tuba highlighted his talents and underlined his knack for colourful melody. Eventually switching to vocals, he completed his masters at the Zurich University of the Arts, where he specialised in mixing and producing. After honing his skills as a live performer with his electro-band Le Dompteur and building a reputation as a DJ at Zakunft and Hive Club, he fulfilled a childhood dream of moving to Berlin back in 2013. A regular on the main floor of Watergate Club, he established himself as a unique character in the electronic music scene, with much more to offer than the standard four to floor sound. After returning to Zurich, Jules produced his debut full-length ‘Equinox in 2016 and was awarded a silver disk for sales (200,000) of his track ‘Pushin On.’

As the new era is underway for Innervisions, Jimi Jules “+” takes centre stage of the label’s fundamental core – artist first, label second. An innovative space for collaborations and symbiosis of mixed media, this album represents the beginning of a whole new chapter.
