At first, Melbourne-based DJ Julian ‘Jules Jay’ Jardine didn’t think much of receiving a pair of basic CDJs in the summer of 2004/2005.
Little did he know it would lead to an already impressive music career playing alongside some of the industry’s most renowned Australian and international DJs.
Initially a present for his birthday, Jules began playing around on his decks in his spare time and eventually started working on some mix CDs, and with his brother and father both established musicians it didn’t take long before he started to pick up the basics.
With a love for house music and a penchant for the club scene, Jules was soon offered his first gig to open the main room at the Ministry of Sound Sessions Two launch at ROOM680 in July ’05.
Within a year, Jules had played on bills with some of the world’s most well-known DJs including Yousef, Axwell and Moguai, as well as local favourites such as Grant Smillie, John Course, Ivan Gough, Goodwill, Dirty South, Ben Morris and many more.
Jules has since played alongside even more big-name internationals including DJ Falcon, Sandy Rivera, D. Ramirez, Jason Herd, Nic Fanciulli, Mike Monday, the list goes on.
In his eight years as a professional DJ, Jules has played at some of Australia’s most iconic clubs and festivals, including Stereosonic, Summadayze, Future Music Festival, 161 and ‘One Love’ at the Prince of Wales.
He lists some of his gig highlights as the infamous Ministry of Sound and Full House parties at ROOM680, the EVERYBODY THAILAND tours in 2009 – 2013 and playing at various USA clubs during the 2010 Miami Music Festival. And most recently the Main Stage 2013 Summadayze.
Jules is now keenly interested in music production, and with an enviable set of music contacts and a studio permanently set up in his apartment, we can expect some big things to come from this talented young DJ
