A name now synonymous with Singapore’s techno scene, French-born Julien Brochard has made his mark across our local dance floors by tearing them a new one with his unmistakable brand of abrasive, high-energy, blistering techno.
Since his discovery of the underground music scene in Paris alongside a group of like-minded tastemakers whom he now considers his closest friends, Julien has developed a keen sense of how to captivate a dance floor with his arsenal of face-melting acid racers and chest-rattling stompers.
His talent did not go unnoticed: in 2016, Julien was quickly swept up by one of Singapore’s most esteemed promoters, The Council, earning him the title of their first-ever resident DJ. From there he quickly shot to the forefront of the scene, sharing the decks with the genre’s titans such as Marcel Dettmann, Amelie Lens, Rebekah, KiNK and more.
Having honed his trademark sound of dark, unrelenting techno, Julien has carved out a reputation for himself in the local circuit: devastating dance floors at some of Singapore’s biggest industrial warehouse parties, rumbling the bass bins across a series of pop-up parties including a full-fledged rave on a riverboat, and blown out the speakers at some of the most notable nightclubs in the region, amongst which include Headquarters, kyō, Kilo, Savage (Hanoi), Elysium (Kuala Lumpur).
Don’t let his severity as he steps up to the decks fool you - as he navigates a spectrum of sounds and genres, Julien will show you that techno doesn’t have to be so serious.
