After being seduced by electronic music and its culture at a warehouse party in 1996, Julien, a native of Toronto, Canada, acquired some used DJ gear and started making mix-tapes for friends. By 2000, Julien earned a Friday night residency at the historic Mad Bar in Toronto playing alongside some of the city?s best DJ?s and international guests such as DJ Heather, Derrick Carter and Miss Honey Dijon. Throughout his years behind the decks, he has developed a distinct sound and mixing style that has made him a crowd favorite in Toronto and has lead to current residencies at The Guvernment and Comfort Zone as well as a number of international appearances including the BPM Conference/Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
In 2004 Julien decided he had more to offer to the scene than just DJing and began producing electronic dance music. Although still in the early stages as an artist, 2008 has been a promising year for Julien as two of his singles, ‘Tricks For Free’ and ’Don’t Stand So Close’, were found on various DJ charts as well as Beatport’s top 100. He has recently launched Generation Recordings, a digital label which acts as an outlet for his own work as well as a medium to promote new music and artists on the tech house, minimal and techno tip.
With his massive DJing skills, quality productions, and a label that is keeping on the cutting edge of club music, Julien has made his mark in Toronto and is proving to be up and coming international talent.
