Juelz has released his dark, entrancing new single, “Eden” via NIGHTMODE. The new track finds him solidifying his place as one of the brightest talents dwelling in the Vancouver bass scene, carried by sweeping metaphors and spectacular instrumentals. Listen to it now below.
“Eden” conceals a powerful message across its nearly three-minute run. Taking plot points from mankind’s proverbial origin story, the enchanting vocal delivery slithers its way back to the book of Genesis to feast upon the forbidden fruit. Like the wool being lifted from Adam and Eve’s eyes in that moment, Juelz fabricates a mind-expanding production that feels akin to seeing the truth for the first time. As the angelic voice accepts her fate, the realization sets in further through an onslaught of earth-shaking synth riffs that roar violently atop ominous pads, complex breakbeat patterns, and the sweet pain brought upon by the track’s rumbling low-end. Once the final note hits, Juelz proves once again why he is considered to be the crown jewel of bass music’s most exciting subgenres.
Of the song, Juelz said, “‘Eden’ is about struggling to find a sense of belonging in a world that is seemingly filled with self-serving people and systems. The garden of Eden serves as a metaphor for this world in the song. Although dark, I feel like the instrumentation of the song possesses a sense of optimism as, although sometimes difficult to find, there will ultimately always be a place where we fit in in this world.”
