Muller initially stepped into the limelightas onehalf of 90 Process alongside Hadone,with releases on Pushmaster Discs and10 Pills Matebefore going solo and delivering material for the likes of Arts Collective, Blue Hour, Bipolar Disorder and of course Lobster Theremin which will releasehis inaugural long player here. Across the ‘Playing With TheDevil’LPMuller delivers his signature high octane aesthetic, fusing raw energeticrhythms with ethereal synth workand rave-leaning influence. Tracks like ‘His Spirit All Around’, ‘Not Afraid’and‘Inner Fire’all perfectlyshowcase Julian’s influence from early Hardcore, Trance and Rave music while contributions like opening cut‘Final Devolution’, ‘Shaping The Future’and ‘Leaving Earth’edge towards a softer, more musical side with hints ofDetroit Technoand early 2000’s IDM. Muller also explores more glitched out electronica styles with choppy breaks, baroquely evolving synth melodies and cinematicsoundscapesebbing and flowing throughout ‘Come To Play WithUs’and ‘Eternal Damnation’.
