The legendary Judge Jules first took to the decks as a new kid on the block in the late eighties whilst studying law at university, hence forming the moniker of the ‘Judge’. This launched an influential career that went on to notch up millions of miles, thousands of pairs of decks rocked and countless gigs in far-flung destinations, as well as the odd dirty warehouse thrown in for good measure. Jules’ DJ sets are the epitome of what DJing is about – passion and crowd-connection, memorable tunes and hands capable of the most mouthwatering mixing.
He is one of the original superstar DJ’s that has had us jumping for 3 decades now! Fresh from his sold-out “Judge Won’t Budge” Tour, he has also just launched his “Judgement Friday” residency at Eden on Ibiza island for 2015. Apart from his highly rated, weekly Global Warm Up podcast, he has also just released his brand new “Trance Anthems” album compilation.
Winner of a huge list of awards, Jules has earned his place amongst the DJ aristocracy with such accolades as: Best DJ (Muzik Awards), No.1 DJ (Mixmag readers’ poll), Best International DJ (Dancestar Awards), and Best Radio DJ at the Smirnoff Dancestars and regular Top 10 positioning in Dj Mag’s Top 100 Dj’s poll, peaking at no. 3 in the world.
Judge Jules is one of the most popular, in-demand and influential figures in dance music, playing some of the most sought-after gigs, both on his home turf of the United Kingdom and around the globe. Time is divided between club shows and large-scale festival appearances They say that you haven’t achieved iconic status as a DJ until you have established yourself in Ibiza, and Jules’ presence on the dance island is legendary.
Jules was the first electronic music DJ to establish and promote his own weekly branded Ibiza night. Fifteen years later that event, Judgement Fridays (formerly Judgement Sundays), still rocks the legendary party island.
