October Next Step Winner: Julie

 

Hungarian singer/songwriter and set designer Julie takes her place as our October Next Step winner. Having written her first songs in kindergarten, Julie has been immersed in the arts from a very young age and is primed to create some beautiful music.

Julie’s first solo release was earlier this year with an EP titled The Blue. The entire 4-track project is available below for stream. Upon listening, you’ll hear some awesome downtempo, trip-hop, and soul vibes that remind us a bit of Aya. Perfect chill out music for the end of a whirlwind of year!

Above, watch the dreamy video for the title track and get your slow motion daydream on.

Over the hers, she has worked with an impressive who’s who, including Joe Claussell, Josh Milan, Glenn Underground, Jimpster, the Ananda Project, and Reelsoul.

This past fall saw the released of Jaidene’s debut full length album, Pisces Pendulum, which is an enchanting blend of loungy, jazzy, and soulful deep house sounds, and has been lauded by the likes of DJ Spinna, Danny Krivit, and Kenny Dope.
