Story

From one-to-watch to leader of the pack, Julian Jordan’s rapid ascent through the dance music world has been something to behold. It’s no surprise given the fresh quality of his productions, which always surprise and delight in equal measures. Not beholden to tired formulas or following the latest trend, he instead paves his own way with innovative rhythms, atypical riffs and endlessly inventive production.

Having made his name with a slew of anthems on scene-leading labels like Spinnin’ Records, DOORN Records and Revealed Recordings, he has now made great strides with his own label GOLDKID Records. Increasingly the place for his own output, he has shown great diversity with his first few releases on the label, covering peak-time anthems, electronic pop and mellowed-out vocal house. Then there was also the matter of his collaboration with the mighty Martin Garrix as part of his ADE 7 tracks in 7 days giveaway, the fierce electro of Welcome, which has accrued 27 million streams to date. All this lead to a well-deserved nomination for Best Dutch Act at the MTV EMAs in 2016.

On the DJ front, he joined the likes of Garrix and Calvin Harris in holding a monthly residency at Las Vegas’ prestigious Omnia, while he’s a regular at world-leading festivals like Tomorrowland and Electric Daisy Carnival. Reaching further afield, he has also dipped into the world of fashion, launching his own capsule collection with Chasin to great acclaim.

His advice to aspiring producers is simple: be yourself: “Always try to create the music you want to create and don’t care too much about what other people say about your music. If it’s something that you are proud of that’s the only thing that matters, because you created it.” These wise words have served him very well indeed.
