One look at this week’s headlines and it can become rather easy to fall down an existential rabbit hole. Here to answer your plea for salvation before the fall is Jules Jenssen: producer, dj, drummer extraordinaire and your ticket away from the ugly reality that is 2010; at least for a little while.
After initially finding his way into music through drumming, this Massachusetts native discovered the artistry of (well-constructed) electronic music at a young age.
It didn’t take him long to begin producing his own beats which traverse EDM genres, spanning from psychedelic to dubbed-out, glitched mayhem, all the while keeping that bass bumping. The most stand-out quality of Jules as a musician is his passion that translates not only into the music he records but also into the sheer infectious energy that he radiates live. Whether he’s contorting your mind while producing and mixing as ELECTRONICAnonymous, or shaking your bones while drumming for The Indobox or Higher Organix, Jules is someone to keep an eye out for because he’s definitely on his way to being not so anonymous.
Seeing him spin at The Big Up Festival (read the story here) this past summer became a game-changer when he proved himself by taking the stage in between electronic Gods: David Tipper and Abakus. Following Tipper is no easy task but he laid down one of the most impressive and magnetic sets of the festival which makes him royalty by default. His 35 minute fall mini-mix is a little teaser for the genius brewing in Jules’ musical laboratory. Minute 21 in the mix is where he drops beloved Beatles track, Eleanor Rigby, which was the point during his Big Up set where the entire crowd paused, locked eyes, and I swear the lights got a little brighter.
I recommend this mix on any day of the week, at any time of day, specifically for those moments where you need a lift and for the lights to get a little brighter.
