Julz went on to play at clubs all over Cape Town, such as Boiler Room, Deluxe, Rush, Spice, Pure, DNA, Gallery, Studio 47 and 96 Degrees, bringing his style of bass-driven beats to the dance-floor.
In 1996, he was the founding partner of FreeBass Productions, which organised underground parties, including a collaboration which was the only Cape Town production to ever feature the late, great, Tony de Vit.
In 1997 he entered the Red Bull DJ Mix competition and placed 2nd overall.
In 2001 he entered the Technics National Battle of the DJ’s, winning overall in Cape Town, and going on to represent the province at the Nationals, where he was a finalist, placing in the top 5 in the country.
After a switch to more tribal, down tempo beats, Julz went on to play at some of Cape Town’s funkiest groove bars and clubs like Piano Lounge, Coffee Lounge, Bass-line, Ignite, Sutra, Vacca Matta, Fez, Cafe Vespa, Cafe Bardeli, Clifton BeachHouse and Cafe Del Mar.
Killajulz has played alongside legends of the dance music scene Sharp Boys, Rob James, Madame Friction, Lisa Lashes, Tony de Vit, Eric Morillo and Phil and Tara Reynolds.
He also organised various events including the Shmoozed parties, Pickled Onion and Equality to name a few, and has been hosting various nights at Cape Town’s clubs since 1996.
Killajulz has since progressed to playing Psytrance and hosts Rhythm Intervention, the longest running Psytrance radio in South Africa, every Thursday night.
A deep love and understanding of music is what drives Killajulz. His open-minded approach allows him to cross genres seamlessly.
His aim is to take listeners on a journey, where the beats take hold of you and keep you wrapped up in a blanket of bliss.
