Vinny's House: Jullian Gomes

Guest DJ on Vinny's House this week is the amazing Jullian Gomes!

23 December 12:12

Jullian Gomes was born and brought up in the Republic of South Africa listening to Soul, Latin and Kwaito, before discovering House Music at the tender age of eight.

Since his first gig in 2003, his career has travelled only upward, and his love for production and skill-set grew steadily with it. Alongside cousin Michael G, he began the G.Family collective and has released on top South African Independent labels including: Soulcandi and House Afrika, which was followed shortly by records on influential International labels such as Realtone Records, Foliage Records, Atjazz Record Company and Seasons Limited.

In 2010 he stepped off the shores of his home continent to participate at the Red Bull Music Academy, which took place in London.

He has since then been invited to play at several local festivals including Oppikoppi, Rocking the Daisies, Cape Town Electronic Music Festival and in 2011 he was invited to play a dream slot at Sonar Festival 2011 in Barcelona, one of the most highly regarded music festivals in the world.

 

At 23 years of age in 2012, Jullian picked up his first MTN South African Music Award Nominee, when G.Family’s Album ”Break the Silence – Deep House Chronicles 6″ was nominated in the category ”Best Dance Album”.

Deciding to take a break from the G.Family collective in early 2012, Jullian Gomes released his solo debut single ”Love Song 28” (Ft. Bobby) as well as his second single in collaboration with Atjazz titled ”Overshadowed”.

2012/2013 also saw Jullian Gomes remixing for artists like Black Coffee, The Layabouts and British Soul legend Omar as well as working on remixes for Defected Records, Ralf Gum & Atjazz. Early 2013 saw Jullian pick up an award for the video of ”Love Song 28” (Feat. Bobby) at the Metro Fm Awards.

Rolling with UK veteran and influential industry stalwart Atjazz and his Record Company in 2013, Jullian Gomes and Atjazz collaborated on their album ”The Gift The Curse” which was seen as one of the most interesting hook-ups in modern house music. The album also featured artists such as Osunlade, Robert Owens, Wunmi, Zano, Clive Astin and John Agesilas.

His inclusion into such prestigious and notable occasions is a testament to the hard work and many years of plying his trade as an avid music fan, producer and DJ. Jullian Gomes is on an eternal quest to widen his musical horizons with shuffled claps and electronic soul.
