Back in 1997, Julien Veniel better know as D’Julz opened up the legendary and long-running residency of his club called Bass Culture at the famous Rex Club in Paris. Twelve years later he started his own record label with the same name and now he has put out a retrospective mixed CD entitled “This Is Bass Culture” with 12 classic cuts from the label along with three unreleased ones. Artists included in the mix are Cassy, DJ Qu, Mr Tophat, Franco Cinelli, & the one and only Mr G!

D’Julz was inspired early on by the sounds of house music and techno when he lived in New York for an extended period of time in the early 1990s when most electronic genres had not been defined yet and there were no clear boundaries between house and techno. This inspired the sound he pushes today with both his club and record label. “This Is Bass Culture” displays this genre blending by weaving through techno & house without ever establishing a single foothold in one genre.
