Who's that guy?

Hi! It's me, Julian (stage name Jul).

I'm a German-raised, Los Angeles-based

composer, DJ, producer and all around sound addict.

After getting a degree in sound engineering and with

20 years of education in piano, singing, jazz guitar,

and saxophone, I relocated to Los Angeles.

Over the last couple years

I have had great luck collaborating and learning

from such inspiring people like film composer Klaus Badelt

(Pirates of the Caribbean, Time Machine, Constantine),

Stewart Copeland (Police) and Mac Quayle (Drive, Spring Breakers,

Only God Forgives) who played a big role in developing my

own musical voice.

If I am not in the studio you can probably find me sneaking

around with my recorder, hunting for new sounds

or in the water attempting to find the perfect

wave to surf.
