Signing his debut release to Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings and having since found supporters in Tiësto, Diplo, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, and Afrojack to name but a few, the exceptional talents of Julian Calor seem to be flourishing well beyond his years, with no signs of slowing down as 2016 has been another stellar year for the rising talent. At just 21-years-old, Julian had already set the scene alight with his unique sense of melody and chord progressions that have continued to send his profile surging upwards.
Not just a growing favourite amongst the dance music elite, Julian’s tracks can often be heard infiltrating the download charts and radio airwaves ever since his first releases and bootlegs. The sound of Julian has since shot through the stratosphere, his #3 Beatport smash ‘Typhoon’ hitting the scene and capturing the attention of those that matter. ‘Typhoon’ claimed the #1 spot in the Buzzchart in its opening week and later received playlist support by dance music don Pete Tong on his legendary BBC Radio 1 show.
As a DJ his deck wizardry has seen him shoot up billing ranks with star appearances at major events that include the Creamfields, Tomorrowland (Belgium and Brazil) and Sunburn India to name a few. In addition to his festival features he has appeared at world-famous venues such as London’s iconic Ministry of Sound and Ushuaia, Ibiza across the Summer, demonstrating further the ever-expanding belief that he is one of the future stars. The Dutch native already has 9 years of experience making beats in the studio, something which not only looks set to stand him in good stead for many years to come, but has already propelled his talents to a whole new level during 2016. Securing a return to Creamfields in the summer, Julian has taken his power charged sets a step further, with shows at hot spots such as Tokyo and Sapporo and an Asia tour giving him a chance to put his seasoned DJ skills to the test.
With Hardwell being a supporter of his from the start, it seemed only fitting that the World #2 DJ offered him the chance to construct a spellbinding debut album titled ‘Evolve’. Both singles ‘Evolve’ and ‘Cell’ – the first two cuts from the 16 track full-length-soared to take the #2 and #6 positions on the Beatport Chart respectively, sending appetites salivating for this hotly-anticipated release.
Looking forward, Julian’s proficiency in the studio has lead him to start his own collaborative music & art project ‘Involve’, providing his own outlet for creating and sharing his music with fans. Joining forces with Dutch design artist Sander Overmeer, Julian has been busy making music with Sander’s visual art pieces, interacting with his fans and livestreaming the process. With an exciting array of new material already making waves over on big Youtube channels like Trap City, Mr Suicide Sheep and influential Soundcloud channels, this new, unique way of making music marks another highlight in the journey of Julian as a forward thinking artist.
Expanding his sound to bass-music territories, Julian has gained support by the likes of Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Ookay, Dyro and Afrojack. His Cell (2017 Trap Reboot) is used as the theme song for the Ultra Miami livestream and has been heard by millions online. With a lot of new releases planned for this year, Julian is set out to have a bright and evolving future.
