Interview with Giulio [email protected](giuliothedj)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Always been into music since i was a baby. My parents recall me dancing to Tina Turner and showing off my tendency to dance early on. Ive been a musician my entire life, studying keyboards, percussion, strings, electronic, new music, contemporary, and more.

I studied at BGSU in OH for music technology, recording technology, and philosophy. This combination ignited a fire within me.

I began composing at a young age and became highly involved in MIDI before I bought a dj mixer combo out of curiosity.

Everything changed Nye 2009 in chicago. I saw JUSTICE live and decided that I wanted to perform electronic dance as well. So i did my first show a month later for a small dedicated audience.

Since then, and for 13 years Ive immersed myself in the culture. ive been performing ever since.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

Several years ago I played a BDSM party and needed to go through a consent course beforehand. About halfway into the party people began having sex on the floor and around the room while someone was kinked live on a side stage. Very intense but a cool and new experience.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

Keeping it fresh is the best way to prevent burnout and fatigue. Evolve. Grow. Enjoy.
Its extremely important to remember to have fun while navigating the performance industry.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

DJ Whatthebleep is a specific person who has taught me vast knowledge about how the industry and how to mature my style, brand, and philosophy about music. He’s been there to support and advise through thick and thin and I’m extremely grateful to work with such a wonderful person.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

I’ve heard it all. Being a classically trained musician, Ive worked had many teachers.

The most impactful thing Ive heard, multiple times, is simply to always pursue your passion. otherwise whats the point.
