Role Model Records recording artist, Julien, gears up to release his mixtape, 'The Session', in February 2014. Julien partners with DJ Wade-O, as the host of his first mixtape to deliver a classic hip hop sounding project. Wade-O says “I’m very excited to be working with Julien on The Session Mixtape. I can definitely say that it’s not going to be like anything you’ve heard before. I personally cannot wait for people to here his music so make sure you get it when it drops“.
The Session features production from Toronto’s Boogie, Atlanta’s Superstar O (credits include Jim Jones, Da' T.R.U.T.H.) and more. “Crazy or Not” the first single off the mixtape will be released on January 28th “I’m actually very honored to be working with DJ Wade-O on the release of my first mixtape. I signed to Role Model Records in late 2011 so I’m still very new as an artist and I think that there’s a lot of pressure on new artists to be more appealing to a broader audience or to overproduce on content. My hope for this project is that listeners will leave knowing more about who Julien is and why he believes what he believes. I want them to leave with a sense of clarity and understanding on topics like ‘Sacrifice’…that’s why it’s called 'The Session'. I’m more of a teacher, -teaching over dope beats on this mixtape-, than an MC.” says Julien.
Julien was recently featured on Spoken’s sophomore album ‘Smoke’, as well as the single "Ain’t Worth It" ('Glass House', 2012). After which he took a step back to study the music industry and his position within it. Now he’s ready to take listeners back to the foundations with 'The Session', a project reminiscent of early 90’s Hip Hop, yet still very contemporary. Julien hopes to use this platform to present some thought provoking topics through a biblical worldview.
