French DJ Julien Nolan is no stranger to the music world. He started DJ-ing at a very young age and has had the opportunity to mix at clubs around the world. Most recently, he played a fundraiser for President Obama and has mixed for various fashion shows for Chloe and Christian Louboutin.
His most recent undertaking is musical director and resident DJ at Fig & Olive, a restaurant with locations in Meatpacking, Fifth Ave, Lexington Ave, Westchester and two locations in California. The restaurant offers tastes from the coastal regions of France, Italy and Spain, while specializing in olive oil the main ingredient in all of their dishes.
2013 has been more or less controversial for Carnage, who tweeted in May that he would be taking a different direction with his music. Entering the green room of DC's famed 9:30 Club, at least ten people stood around chatting, while the man himself was immediately spotted wearing a black Adidas track suit and sunglasses.
If there’s one thing that the carefree, Chipotle-loving DJ/producer has taught us, it’s that timing is everything. His “festival trap” remix of Hardwell’s “Spaceman” is largely the reason why he is so successful today, but had he released it just a year or two sooner, his career would have played out much differently. “I wouldn’t be here. It’s all about timing and getting your shit right. Knowing when to drop something. A lot of people lose their steam because they didn’t drop anything, or they dropped too much. It’s all about timing and finding a good team to work behind you.”
Last year’s Florida tour nearly sold out so make sure to grab a ticket and boogey on down with this festival favorite!
