Welcome to the Future 2013, podcast No.2 by Julien Chaptal by Welcome to the Future published on 2013/05/02 20:20:36 +0000 Welcome to the Future resident Julien Chaptal is one of the key players of the blossoming Amsterdam music scene: a multitalented DJ, producer and live-act with a string of quality club hits to his name on labels like 2020Vision, Intacto, Remote Area, Suara, Wedig, Moodmusic and Saved. One of his biggest releases so far was the stunning ‘Mamdaye’, a funky house track with an irresistible hook line, which became a big clubhit in the summer of 2009. Originally from Paris, France, Julien Chaptal moved to Amsterdam some ten years ago and started to produce groovy French house- and disco-tinged tracks that eventually led to a first release on the young Amsterdam imprint Remote Area in 2007, around the time the label propelled a whole generation of Amsterdam producers to fame. With several of them (Kabale Und Liebe, Lauhaus, Boris Werner, David Labeij, Quazar) Chaptal formed the electronic live-band Amsterdam 661, which never released a record but only performs live at special events and festivals. Internationally renowned as one of the the best DJ’s Amsterdam has to offer - with a funky and diverse style that ranges from deep house and house to tech house and even techno – he really has played all over the world, from San Francisco, USA to Seoul, South Korea and Cape Town, South Africa. In the Dutch capital Amsterdam Julien has a DJ-residency in one of the hotspots in the city: the famous Studio 80, where he is a regular on both the WKND Thursday nights as the Welcome to the Future-parties.
