Joca got inspired to DJ after listening to Armin Van Buuren’s Essential Mix in 2003. Having been listening to Trance since 2000 and the likes of Tiesto, Armin and Ferry Corsten, he wanted to play the trance they did to his local trance lovers. Within a year he secured his first gig playing melodic and uplifting trance and progressive house.
For seven years he was a stable in Victoria and Vancouver trance and progressive house scene having played alongside Sharam, Andy Moor and Ferry Corsten. After some time off he’s returned to DJ’ing with his Chasing The Vibe mix series. His mixes are sure to take you on a journey full of deep, melodic and progressive house music.
After many sleepless nights dancing to the house and techno house sounds of the mid 90’s, Julien fell under the spell of masterful DJ’s like Richiew Hawtin, Derrick May and Derrick Carter. Late nights were all about dancing and listening to the techniques, programing and mixing styles of the experienced DJ. At the age of 17, Julien started making mix tapes for friends. The early mix tapes led to dj sets at house parties and one off events, which eventually opened the doors to Julien’s first club gig.
A true DJ at heart and in the soul, Julien began making waves in his home city with residencies at the world-renowned Guvernment and Toronto after hours favorite, Comfort Zone. His selected blend of house, techno and minimal music combined with a magnetic charisma behind the decks, has moved dance floors from New York to Ibiza, Mexico to Miami, and beyond.
