Julien Veniel, artist name D’Julz, is undoubtedly a true craftsman behind the decks going beyond mere genres and trends, actively shaping the ever-changing soundscape of electronic music through his own productions, DJ performances and parties.
With a career spanning over two and a half decades, D’Julz has practically done it all. He began spinning in Paris, often playing his home city’s much-talked about early 90’s raves and legendary clubs, all before moving to New–York in 1993 to further hone his skills and cement his reputation as a true taste-maker in his field. The rest, as they say, is history.
A gifted curator of music whose pedigree has earned him a loyal international following and a constant tour schedule which sees him travel the world’s major cities every week playing the best venues they have on offer. Not to mention the infamous Circoloco (DC10) where he has held a residency for 7 years, taking charge of the world-renowned red terrace room several times each summer season. Each set demonstrates his uncanny ability to weave his penchant for dub elements into the house and techno sphere and rocking the floor with potent groove and sultry rhythms.
Since D’Julz started producing he has been responsible for a long list of tracks and remixes that have become essential weapons in the record boxes of the world’s DJ elite. His music has been signed to some of the world’s finest underground labels – Circus Company, Robsoul, Ovum, Rekids and more. As his Bass Culture label goes from strength to strength, clocking over 60 releases, he recently started a new label called JV recordings with the Yoyaku crew.
D’Julz remains as enthusiastic as he was when he first started DJing and continues to traverse the globe rocking dance floors every weekend. Without doubt a true legend and one who continues to be at the top of his game now and forever.
