D. Julien - Absolute Perfection

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: D. Julien
Producer:
Soulful!
Album:
Live, Love, Learn

As unpredictable as the DJBooth.net community can be, there are times when I can pretty much see what’s coming.  Case in point: I expect D. Julien‘s latest single and third Booth feature to elicit at least a few variations on, “This isn’t Absolute Perfection, but it’s pretty damned good!”, and I have a feeling that’s just the reaction the Brooklyn emcee’s looking for; as Julien explains on the new record, he’s simply striving to “be the best [he] can be,” edging ever-closer to musical perfection through hard work and persistence.  The up-and-comer’s exuberant lyricism is backed by the equally energetic production stylings of perhaps the most accurately-named beatsmith of all time; Soulful!‘s euphoric, soul-sampling instrumental had my head bobbing from bar one, and its propulsive catchiness may well help the rapper earn some of his highest reader ratings to date.  If you’re digging this cut, you’ll be happy to hear that plenty more is on the way—D. Julien’s Live, Love, Learn LP, produced entirely by Soulful!, is set to drop July 1st.
