Julio's first love is house music and operating just on the peripheries of Bristol’s bass music hotbed scene has allowed him to quietly cultivate a take on the genre unlike any other.
Julio's interest in electronic music began in earnest after hearing Daft Punk's "Da Funk”. There was something Julio warmed to in the typically French approach Daft Punk and Cassius took to house music composition, and his earliest vinyl purchases reflected this. Aged 14, a battered old PC and a copy of Reason became Julio's very first 'instruments.'
Perhaps indicative of Bristol's fascination with low frequencies, Julio began to gravitate towards the bass- indebted sounds of the Dirtybird label. After spending considerable periods of time sharpening his mixing and productions skills, Claude VonStroke's label tellingly signed an EP's worth of Julio's material for the Julio Bashmore EP.
Labels, media and clubbers seemed to instantly 'get' the skewed angle at which Julio attacked house music in 2010. Night Slugs, Ten Thousand Yen, PTN, Dirtybird, fabric and Soul Motive were among those who housed productions/remixes—and this list of forward-thinking labels seemed fittingly representative of Julio's future-facing output.
Julio Bashmore will release his debut album in March.
