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 creating a typical Julian Jordan high energy sound.
Having made his name with a slew of anthems on scene-leading labels like Spinnin Records, DOORN records and Revealed Recordings, he is now part of the STMPD RCRDS family and officially signed to Martin Garrix’s label. He has shown great diversity with his releases on the label, covering peak-time anthems and electronic pop, but also hard-hitting club tracks. Signed to STMPD, he released Glitch, already his third collaboration with Martin Garrix. In 2019, Julian also stirred things up by releasing hard-hitting tracks like ‘Bassline’ and ‘Next Level’, a perfect depiction of how Julian mastered the craft of producing cutting-edged bangers. ‘To The Wire’ and ‘Love You Better’ confirm that there are no boundaries to his techniques and creativity. His broad musical spectrum, endless innovations and drive to perfect his skills have definitely defined 2019 as a huge success claiming the number one spot on Beatports electro house for several months.
With a nomination for Best Dutch Act at the MTV EMAs and joining the likes of Tiësto and Calvin Harris in holding a monthly residency at Las Vegas’ prestigious Omnia, he’s certainly earned his status as a sought-after DJ. Julian’s commitment to energetic and cutting-edge shows has made him a regular at world-leading festivals like Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and Ultra Miami, but also sent him on a crazy summer tour playing stages at Sziget, Mysteryland, Lollapalooza and many more. While performing a total of 11 shows during Amsterdam Dance Event 2019, he once again hosted his very own Julian Jordan & friends night, where Martin Garrix and Don Diablo joined him on stage.
With his assiduous mindset, he released his very own YouTube series ‘It’s Julian Jordan’ to give his fans a glimpse of his daily life. This long-awaited special project consists of six episodes with exclusive behind the scenes footage, integrating the viewer as part of the Julian Jordan entourage. The successful projects, record number of releases and his track ‘Oldskool’ staying number 1 on Beatport’s top 100 Electro House for 10 weeks, set the bar high for 2020.
With releases like ‘Oh Lord’ ft. Daijo, ‘Without You’, ‘Badboy’ and ‘Boss’ all securing the number 1 spot on Beatport’s top 100 Electro House, he definitely set the tone for 2020 and took his characteristic sound to another level. 2020 also saw him claim the first place on Beatport’s Top 100 Electro House artists and #71 in the DJ Mag Top 100, proving that very few can still resist Julian Jordan. And 2021 already started just as promising with ‘Big Bad Bass’ and ofcourse his recent releases ‘The Box’ and ‘Let me be the one’, which already had 1 mln streams after just 5 days! 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.
