Electronic Dance Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. As a kid going to school every morning listening to the local dance station dancing to every beat. From ATB’s “9PM Till I Come” and Chicane’s “Don’t Give Up” to Solarstone’s “Seven Cities” and the “Euphoria” compilation series, this music has clearly had a huge impact in my life.
But it wasn’t until 2004 that I discovered Tiesto and the sound of Trance and became instantly hooked. After going through every chapter of Tiesto’s Magik and ISOS compilations, I was inevitably lured into the sounds of Armin’s A State of Trance, Above and Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Andy Moor and the like.
That’s when it hit me that Trance was the style i had been searching for and where my heart belonged to. However after being introduced to the ever-evolving Progressive side of House music thanks to amazing labels such as Anjunadeep, Proton, Silk, Apollo, Mango Alley and many others, I have expanded my taste from purely uplifting Trance to a deeper sounding which I combine in my sets and will carve my own signature sound in the process.
Now after over 5 years of closely experiencing the scene evolve first-hand, I’ve acquired enough experience to start putting my own mixes together of what I think is the absolute best this music has to offer. The result is Music with Feeling.
Born in Mexico City in 1988, Julio began his DJ career in 2011, leaving behind everything he used to do.
Julio started this trip half a year ago after he made the best decision of my life, to leave the college where he was studying and begin to study Music Production. When i was young he used to listen many genres of electronic music but trance has something that always takes him to a special place. That’s the reason why he decided to play trance in order to help the people “go into a trance” this is the theme of his weekly mix (Go Into A Trance). Before he made this life changing decision, Julio was a regular student who loved to see the DJs playing music, and hoping to some day be a great DJ.
