Judge Jules
23

Despite his all-conquering Judgement Sundays events, 44-year-old Judge Jules still cites the show he does on BBC Radio 1 each week as his first and foremost love. Now the only man on the station to champion trance, he also does so on his own internationally-syndicated radio show, The Global Warm Up, which can be heard across the US, Russia, Europe and the Middle East.
This year his Judgement Sundays bashes have played out at Eden once again; at a number of global festivals but, for the first time, also at super club, BCM Mallorca, each week throughout the summer.
“The challenge for someone like me who has been doing this for years is always going to be to re-invent yourself to a new audience,” the Judge tells DJmag. “Out there it's a slightly younger market than Ibiza, so it's been important to me for that reason.”
Though he's always released a steady number of his own trance-y productions in the past, this year Jules has upped the ante. “It's like your business card now; everyone needs to produce,” he says, before speaking of the influences and inspirations he has picked up on his extensive DJ travels in the last 12 months. Though this non-stop jock (he's done around 150 shows since last year's poll) lets on that he can't really fit much more into an already bulging schedule, he's still found time for one more wholly new and ambitious project.
“I'm working on a club-wear-focused clothing brand,” he reveals. KRISTAN J CARYL
