D'Julz is an absolute master of his craft, there's no doubt about it.
With his Bass Culture imprint, he's curated one of the finest house music discographies around and a quick scan through the artists that have released via the label shows off a who's who of talent. Mr G, Cassy, John Dimas, Mr Tophat & Art Alfie and D'Julz himself have all offered up tantalising records that work wonders both in the club and in your lounge (most probably during a crack-on).
Before all that though, he began his career spinning at underground parties in Paris, honing his craft and getting to grips with turntables, a skill that he, of course, still utilises today and is one of the best we've seen hit the wax. Years of playing and grafting saw his bookings grow around Europe and his profile steadily rose. It was in 1997 however, 12 years before he started his label, that he launched the first Bass Culture parties at Paris' Rex Club and anyone familiar with the French capital's scene, knows that the Rex is one of the most lauded venues in the city.
The party is one of the longest-running events there and he's managed to move with the times in terms of his bookings. DJs like Raresh and Seth Troxler have featured on line-ups within the last year and Steve Rachmad, The Martinez Brothers, Nastia, Praslesh are all set to play soon.
And what's most striking about Julien's career is that he runs his label and parties and has time to be a prolific producer, too.
