If you don’t know, you’d better ask somebody: DJ Platurn lives music. An 18 year veteran of the DJ game, his career has seen him rock parties worldwide including engagements throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, Canada, South America, Scandinavia, and countless venues in his home base of Northern California. He is a DJ adamant on sharing the world’s music with the music lovers within, a mission he’s proudly been succeeding at since he first threw down as a teenager.
The 80‘s and 90’s brought him to Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop brought him to the samples, the samples brought him to love and appreciation, and he brings all of these to the table when he steps behind the decks. His selection skills and ability to turn any venue into a “OOOOHHH SNAP!” fest have earned him a devoted following with those who share his passions for the art form of spinning and great music. He’s bringing it to the people because he knows they deserve it.
In 2013 DJ Platurn will leave no party unrocked. You’ll want to be there to see it.
Born in Los Angeles, and bred in the San Francisco Bay Area, DJ/Producer Julio Galvez aka The Whooligan, is a rising taste maker known for his love and dedication to music and supporting his community. Genres are not barriers for him, any language, culture or philosophy that resonates with the young visionary is fair game for inclusion. This type of diversity and variety has made The Whooligan a trusted source of insight and ground breaking music for parties, brands, labels and businesses.
The love for music began in his early childhood, but when he got a chance to work at the famed Amoeba Records as he entered college, The Whooligan constantly began meeting new people and hearing new sounds. This naturally expanded and deepened his skills as a DJ and soon big homies like J-Boogie of J-Boogie Dubtronic Science were encouraging him to keep rocking. Throwing his first party before he was legal, The Whooligan started rapidly gaining the respect of his local peers and was eventually getting booked to play alongside people he admired. Soon, news of this precocious talent spread far out and by his early twenties, The Whooligan was being tapped by MTV to go on the road for extensive periods of time, opening up for then-new artists like Rick Ross and Lupe Fiasco. That experience forced him to become an adaptable selector, able to gauge an audience quickly and spin virtually all styles of music.
Today, The Whooligan is a vital part of the Bay Areas music culture. His undeniable passion for his craft and his relentless work ethic have gained him fans worldwide. The workstation looks different everyday. One day he may be locked in his studio meticulously crafting musical Monet s and genre-defying mixes and the next, spinning classic cuts alongside some of the worlds hottest Deejays. He has appeared on the Om Records release of Mark Farina’s Mushroom Jazz 7 and the highly celebrated Om:Cast 31 “Keys To The Garage” MIX and has recorded with artists including Zion-I, The Park, Black Spade, Colossus, Jesse Boykins III and more.
In 2009 his creativity and audacity as a DJ landed him one of the top 10 DJ sets at the Winter Music Conference in Miami along with heavy hitters like Rich Medina and Lil Jon. He has performed at MTV Spring Break, WMC, SXSW, The Fillmore Jazz Festival and supported acts like Jazzanova, Daz-I-Kue, Jazzy Jeff, J. Rocc, Vikter Duplaix and tons more. Established brands like Microsoft, Oracle, Sony, Island Def Jam and Myspace have sought out his services. The Whooligan is also a founding member of the critically acclaimed electronic soul group 40Love, who just released their Dreams Don`t Sleep (2012) project and have already garnered attention from NBC, URB, Okayplayer and more.
Whether blending two records in a unique way or creating an original one of his own, the running thread in all his work is The Whooligan, passion for music and the people he spins it for. Truly a mix of the music, culture and people he has been exposed to, The Whooligan has his ear, and his heart, in the right place.
