I would like to introduce my friend Deejay Julicio to the peeps of the World. We met in Santiago, Chile through a mutual friend pro snowboarder Sebastian Camus. I was down there at the end of the South American snowboard season and we decided it would be fun to throw a party celebrating the change of weather to springtime. The party we threw was called Off The Snow to The Beach.
I edited up a bunch of the most recent footy from my collection and we got 1000 of our closest friends together at a club called Subterraneo. Deejay Julicio slayed it on the turntables. Ever since then I’ve wanted him to play a concert in Bellingham to show my friends back home how to party Chilean style. Now I finally have the pleasure of hosting him for the Summer Hiphop Kickoff at the Wild Buffalo on July 1st. Unfortunately we can’t party at the clubs till 8am in Whatcom County, otherwise I’m sure he’d play all night!
Who are you, Where are you from?
I’m Deejay Julicio from Santiago de Chile.
Why did you move from Chile to San Francisco?
It was the right time for me to get out of Chile.
Who are your musical influences?
My musical influences started with my big brothers and their rock music. I love almost every style of music like Reggae, R&B, Electro, Bossanova, Pop, Techno, Latin etc…etc..
When did you realize you wanted to play music for a living?
Since very young I was always dancing, singing, playing drums, and my grandma’s vinyls, loving music.. I really got into music when i was 16. My first band I ever played in was called “Los Morton,” a funk rock rap band. I started scratching with them really young.
Have you ever had a big break, where someone gave you a chance to perform?
Yeah many times. Gigs sometimes come out of the blue.
What can people expect from your performance and musical style?
They can expect lots of energy & fun. I give it all on stage.
What’s your favorite venue or venues to play?
I love to play @ the Mezzanine Club in SF, I really would love to play @ Fabric in London and all over the world.
I wanna shout my people from Santiago de Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, Brazil & all my Bay Area fam.
