Julian Perez developed his love for electronic music during the early 90’s heavily influenced by the music coming out of US and UK. He's recognized amongst his peers as a unique and diverse DJ. His personal style and approach to DJing can be summarized in four simple words: dedication, discernment, respect and patience.
Julian released his first record in 2010 and before long it became clear that the next logical step was to launch his own label. Thus, " Fathers & Sons Productions " was born... A strictly vinyl-only label which he founded with a friend in 2012. This, provided Julian a platform to push his sound worldwide and within a short of period time.
With label showcases in more than twelve different countries in the first year and a solid output catalog, the label gained international exposure with the likes of the most respected artists on the scene. Showing full support in the clubs by playing his productions on his own record labels and in others such as Cocoon Recordings, Raum..Musik and Subwax Bcn.
To date, every release has sold out in the first days of sales; testiment to Julian’s impeccable taste in House & Techno production as well as having a good ear for spotting new and interesting artists.
Fathers & Sons number twelve closed a chapter with his first solo album " Solemnity ". A 2x12” vinyl release highlighting Perez's attention to detail and the evolution of style & window to the artist's dedication to his craft showing ability to create honest sound.
2017 was the year when his fresh own project ” Girada Unlimited “ was launched and quickly gained the attention of the real crate diggers. A vinyl-only label already heavily supported before even knowing who was behind it. The tenth release of the label comes as Julian’s second album “ Break-Even ” in 2021 and right after a solid series of records by Julian among other producers.
Perez has acquired an impressive international reputation, playing in the most relevant festivals such as Outline in Moscow, Sunwaves in Romania, Epizode in Vietnam and hosting his own events during Sonar Week in Barcelona, Kazantip Festival in Crimea, Winter Music Conference in Miami and in some of the finest underground parties and frequently in essential clubs worldwide like Rex in Paris, Fabric in London, Womb in Tokyo and Robert Johnson in Offenbach just to name a few, showing not only him as a label boss, but as an independent artist.
He’ s been nominated as best artist on 2012 and 2013 by Vicious Music Awards and on newcomer category by DJ Awards in 2016.
Julian has been a regular at Underground Ibiza club since years, hosting his own nights over the summer season. Besides that, he's been invited frequently to Richie Hawtin's ENTER. at Space and to Sven Vath's Cocoon Ibiza.
The best to enjoy Julian is to listen to him live on the dancefloor... from technique to record selection in his own world behind the decks.

" For Julian Perez’s imprint Girada’s tenth release he has cooked up something rather special. His label has always stood for originality and diversity and as well as his own unique productions having a respected platform from which to propel him he has also given sanctuary to other like-minded artists such as D&S, Franco Cinelli and Caim. It is however Julian that has taken the reins for GIRADA010.
Spread over 2×12” ‘Break Even’ is an impressive body of work that spans a broad range of styles as followers of Perez’s work will have come to expect. The double 12” which is also available as NFT kicks off Side A the spacey breaks of ‘Sweentro’ closely followed by the lushness of ‘Facts’ and brooding ‘Revelation’. With there being three tracks on Side A it is to be expected that one of these tracks will be a tad shorter than the others.
Flipping over and Side B treads more towards peak time vibes with ‘Eveileb’. The pumping kick drum and menacing synth lines encounter a sweet contrast by way of the retro synth pads. The pressure drops somewhat to deep house territory on ‘Versatile’ and remains there come the start of Side C with ‘Energy Fever’. The low-slung conga laden groover is a sublime piece of dream house more than capable of entrancing a dancefloor.
Closing out Side C is ‘CSO All The Way’, a shimmering piece of cosmic breaks and the theme creeps over onto the sublime D1 banger ‘Beyond Existence’. Rounding out the landmark GIRADA010 is the stunning ‘Drowned In Faith (Love & Light) and the title could not be more fitting.
The digital release is available as NFT ahead of the vinyl release. "

Julian Perez - Basix and Chill Podcast (20.05.2020)
Yes, I'm turning 38 today!
Celebrating this hell of a ride, I'm releasing a special podcast recorded a while ago. It feels that was meant to be recorded back then and be released now, and it's safe to say that it's the perfect vibe for me at this time when we're away from clubbing.
For those who were asking for another downtempo, hip-hop, instrumentals journey.. Well, here's my gift to y'all. Feel free to like, comment and repost ;)

Julian Perez @ Sunwaves Festival SW26
And here it is 👆. A cut from my set from the last SW26 on a Sunday afternoon fading into night, in between Sepp and Amorph (live) sets. Another great experience on that beloved country to sum 🙃.
Hope you like the set. I appreciate your comments and feel free to repost if you dig it. Annoying "Track id" comments are not allowed! Just kidding 😆.
Please get in touch before uploading this set to third sites, thank you.
