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 is now part of the STMPD RCRDS family and officially signed to Martin Garrix’s label. He has shown great diversity with his first few releases on the label, covering peak-time anthems and electronic pop. Signed to STMPD, he released the chart-topping track ‘Glitch’, in collaboration with Martin Garrix. He made 2019 next level and shook up the world with his hard-hitting releases. His latest tracks ‘Oldskool’, ‘Bassline’ and ‘Next Level’ are a perfect depiction of how Julian mastered the craft of producing cutting-edged bangers that will most certainly convulse worldwide year after year.
Julian Jordan’s radio tunes such as ‘Need You ft. SMDY’ and ‘To The Wire’ 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.
With a nomination for Best Dutch Act at the MTV EMAs and joining the likes of Garrix 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 night.
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 drive to keep growing make 2019 a year that’s hard to beat. Be ready though, because one thing is for sure: Julian Jordan has even more in stock for 2020!
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.
