Judge Jules's Biography

Jules took to the decks in 1987, launching the career that has easily notched up millions of miles, a legacy of spins of the decks and countless gigs in far-flung destinations, as well as the odd dirty warehouse thrown in for good measure. Jules’ DJ sets are the epitome of what DJing is about – passion and crowd-connection, amazing tunes and a set of hands capable of the most nimble of mixing.

With a list of awards that would make the American Olympic team blush, Jules has earned his place amongst the DJ aristocracy. Voted in 2010 at number 18 in the worldwide Top 100 DJs poll, Jules has won such accolades as – Best DJ (Muzik Awards), No.1 DJ (Mixmag readers’ poll), Best International DJ (Dancestar), and Best Radio DJ at the Smirnoff Dancestars.

Awards aside, Jules remains one of the most popular, in-demand and influential figures in dance music, who has had the pleasure of playing some of the most sought-after gigs.


Jules’ appearances are spread between the legendary UK club scene, and an equal number of far flung expeditions. He regularly spins at all the top British club nights, as well as packing out fields at the UK’s best festivals and weekenders including Creamfields and Global Gathering, where in 2010, he became the only DJ to play all ten years of the celebrated 50,000-capacity festival. His deck dexterity is also consistently in demand throughout the rest of the world: Western and Eastern Europe, the US, the southern hemisphere (Brazil, Argentina, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and India to name but a few) and on the African continent (The Pyramids, Egypt) and the Middle East.

Ibiza – Judgement Sundays

Jules’ presence in Ibiza is legendary. His weekly night, ‘Judgement Sundays’, is one of the island’s busiest and most infamous. In 2009, Judgement Sundays celebrated ten years at the top of its game – no mean feat for club night in Ibiza – and 2010 was equally wall-to-wall rammed.  Judgement Sundays and Jules also produce a fortnightly podcast all year round, available for free download via iTunes, with a last count of almost 300,000 subscribers.

Jules started radio DJing in 1987 on the (then pirate radio station) Kiss FM, which went legal in 1990, hosting the two flagship weekend shows.  In

October 1997, Jules stepped up to BBC Radio 1, where he has been a pivotal figure in the station’s dance coverage ever since. He can be heard on Friday nights between 11pm and 1am, as well as playing a huge part in Radio 1’s well-attended live events.

His dulcet tones can also be heard across the globe, through the ‘Global Warm Up’ show, which is syndicated to many stations around the world

Producing / Writing / A&R

Jules’ ear for a good track was put to good use as A&R for Manifesto Records in the ‘90s, where he sniffed out some of the biggest ever dance hits, including Josh Wink’s ‘Higher State of Consciousness’.

He went on to collaborate with fellow producer Paul Masterson under the guise Hi-Gate. The project resulted in three Top 20 hits in the UK charts.

In October 2006 a personal ambition was realised as Jules released his debut solo album, Proven Worldwide, which was well-received in both the UK and US. Eagle-eared listeners may have heard the man himself contribute vocals on a few tracks! The album also features a bonus DVD tracking Jules on his travels.

In 2009, Jules released his second well-received artist album, Bring The Noise on Maelstrom Records which featured a selection of ‘tried and tested’ dancefloor bombs.

In 2010 Jules ventured back into the studio, and released the summer anthem Verano Loco, which became Mixmag’s Trance Tune of the Month. Jules has now signed to the highly respected Spinnin’ label, and another album is due in 2011.


Jules’ compilation credits include various TV-advertised ‘Judgement Sundays’ compilations for Ministry of Sound and Warners, as well as several Gatecrasher mixes, including  Gatecrasher Immortal, which was released in September 2007, which sold in excess of 120,000 units.

In addition, Jules has mixed countless other compilations for Ministry Of Sound, including the legendary MOS Annuals and the Clubbers’ Guide. Altogether Jules has racked up well over three million compilation sales, with many releases reaching Platinum, Gold and Silver status.


Jules has appeared on numerous mainstream shows, including Big Breakfast, South Bank Show, MTV, O-zone and has co-presented on BPM. He has also had two ‘Top of the Pops’ appearances with Hi-Gate.

Jules has also featured as a pundit on Channel 4’s ‘Top 100 No.1’s’ with Graham Norton, the ‘Spin Cities’  series in 2002 on what is now known as BBC Three, The Wright Stuff on Channel 5, BBC2’s The Gadget Show and motor shows Top Gear and Fifth Gear.
