When you think of new, fresh, talented artists with a new style and futuristic vision that is unheard of, who do you think of? Or an artist who is very eclectic and has a great understanding of his culture and the history of not just Hip Hop but music as a whole? A new breed of artists are upon us Ahead of that pack is Brooklyn artist, D.Julien.
D.Julien was born in Brooklyn, New York. He's an artist that got into Hip Hop at a young age. He thrives on making "life" music. Music that everyone can relate to - no matter age, race, music preference, etc. Growing up in the streets of Brooklyn, he's been through his share of rap battles. He realized in 2004 that it was time to create music. He knew at an early age he'd have to take a different approach with his music. "I just want to be viewed as a very eclectic artist and I don't want my style to be compared to anyone elses." says D.Julien. This mentality allows him to make the unique music that he does as he still maintains that New York demeanor.
"I'm a fan of all types of music. I honestly listen to every genre of music and try to incorporate some of that in my music in attempts to broaden my fan base". This shows that D.Julien is listening and has studied various forms of music. By doing that, he has incorporated what he's learned and saw from previous artists and tried to mix that with his style to create music of the future. D.Julien is a lyricist/poet/storyteller that makes music for the masses. His ideas/concepts are way beyond his age. He understood that being a young artist, he'd have to show people that he was worth listening to and he would be the face of music for years to come.
His first solo mixtape, "Let Me Introduce Myself" was released July 17, 2008 and it was done to really get his foot in the door. Unsure of direction, D.Julien put that first project out to see how the masses would respond to his debut. The response was overwhelming enough to warrant him continuing to pursue his dream. His second project, "The Experiment" was released on February 17, 2009. It was downloaded over 5,000 times and it really gave D.Julien a steady fanbase and some looks. D.Julien's sound was truly identified in this project as the young artist let his direction and goal be known in it. It was very versatile and was critically acclaimed. His latest project, "Live, Love, Learn" was released July 1, 2009. It has been downloaded more than 8,000 times which clearly shows the rise in D.Julien's fanbase. The future is bright for this prodigy. Get on board and support! Check out all of the projects above or at www.djulienmusic.com.
His music ranges anywhere from political issues to his personal experiences which gives us authentic music to listen to. "I think a lot of artists are scared to think outside of the box. The artists that are cliche and fail to challenge their minds to make more creative and enjoyable music for the masses are the artists that will not be successful when hip hop starts to evolve more rapidly. Hip Hop is a movement. Rap as a genre of music is part of that movement. Other music such as House, Techno, Rock, etc. are now being accepted into the Hip Hop movement. So as an artist, to maximize your fan base an to be keep it fresh you have to be creative and embody some of these genres of music and be different." says D.Julien. He has a great understanding of music currently and for music of the future.
