Whether its through his productions, radio shows, compilations, parties or club sets, D'Julz has been at the forefront of electronic music since his career first began back in 1992. A firm DJ and fan favourite alike, his ability to transcend genres and trends has seen him hold one of the most consistent levels of success of any modern day DJ/Producer. A run of form that is at its strongest, today.
D'Julz's early career saw him make an instant impact in his home city of Paris. Spinning at many of the city's early raves and legendary clubs. The release of his debut mix compilation, provided him with the opportunity to export his sound. A hugely successful 1993 move to New York quickly furthered his reputation, and upon his return to Europe he found himself to be in high demand, playing key Clubs in Belgium, Holland, the UK and Ibiza.
1997 saw the birth of the now legendary, 'Bass Culture' parties at Paris' Rex club. The monthly party has now become the longest running event in the clubs history, and in 2009 gave its name to D'Julz's brand new, and highly successful record label.
Having released his debut productions in the mid 90's, it was the early 2000's that really saw him make an impact. His music has now featured on some of the worlds finest labels, and his releases and remixes for the likes of Ovum, 20:20 Vision, Dessous, Pokerflat, Safari, Real Tone, Get Physical, Mobilee, Rekids, Systematic and 100% Pure have all become essential weapons in the sets and record boxes of the world's elite.
In recent times D'Julz has reached a new level of production excellence. 2008's ‘Just so You Know’ on Ovum and 'Fleurette' on Circus Company became instant classics, and his current release for the label 'Rotondo' is well on its way to achieving similar status. His remix of Slam's 'Positive Education' on Soma, and his edit of Anonym's 'Lov Is Easy' on his own Bass Culture label have ruled the DJ and download charts alike.
D'Julz continues to travel the world, playing the finest dancefloors and parties. The future has never been more exciting for the Frenchman. His Bass Culture label continues to grow from strength to strength and this year will see him release the Rex club compilation, celebrating the 15th Year of the Bass Culture parties.
Before moving to the nations’ capital from Minneapolis, Goyette spent his youth immersed in music, avoiding the bitter cold of mid-western winters with the warm sounds of electronic music.
Living in the District for the better part of a decade, Goyette has established a solid reputation as a local favorite and has spun with some of the biggest acts from around the world, including Cassy, Juan MacLean, Derrick May, T. Williams, Hot Since 82, and Azari & III, to name a few. His signature sound has also brought him to SXSW in Austin and First Avenue in Minneapolis, as well as, some of the best venues in D.C. including U Street Music Hall (named 2nd best sound system in the country by Beatport) Flash, and countless warehouse spaces across the city.
