A globally-renowned and award-laden DJ is coming to Hitchin this weekend, writes Layth Yousif.
Judge Jules, in association with ‘Badhabit Muzik’, is set to appear at the Chic Bar in Churchgate on Saturday evening as part of his 2017 ‘Tried and Tested’ album tour.
Jules comes to Hitchin on the back of two releases with his label, Judgment Recordings. He’s also just played shows at Ministry of Sound’s The Gallery in London, as well as Sheffield’s Gatecrasher and is looked at a hefty schedule of touring for the rest of the year already. The show at Chic Bar features Jules as a headliner with support from several of the Bad Habit DJs.
Judge Jules first took to the decks in 1987, launching a career that has notched up millions of miles, a legacy of spins of the decks and countless gigs in far-flung destinations, as well as the odd dirty warehouse thrown in for good measure. Jules’ DJ sets are the epitome of what DJing is about – passion and crowd-connection, amazing tunes and a set of hands capable of the most nimble of mixing.
With a list of awards that would make the Great Britain Olympic team blush, Jules has earned his place among the DJ aristocracy with accolades such as Best DJ from Muzik Awards, No.1 DJ through a Mixmag readers’ poll, Best International DJ at the Dancestar Awards, and Best Radio DJ at the Smirnoff Dancestars.
Jules also attained the lofty height of number three in DJ Mag’s legendary Top 100 DJs poll. Awards aside, Judge Jules remains one of the most popular, in-demand and influential figures in dance music, playing some of the most sought-after gigs. As a pioneer of the club scene, he continues to grace the decks at many of the world’s biggest and best dance events – from Gatecrasher and Ministry of Sound to Global Gathering and Creamfields, Jules is always a firm favourite, as he is at the top clubs all around the world.
His visit to Hitchin may be a little more humble, but he told Venue that he was ‘looking forward’ to playing in the town.
