For fans of Julian Gray of Julian Gray Media, this has been a long time coming. As a very public supporter of Deadmau5 and his label mau5trap, Julian is no stranger to fans of the mau5. After years of following, he has finally earned a place on this legendary roster, and with his label premiere on the weekend of his 21st birthday Julian is now officially the newest and youngest up-and-coming artist on the imprint as of May 1st. It all started on one of Joel’s ’mau5trap Mondays’ demo submission live streams, when he immediately recognized Julian by name and proceeded to call him “our local try hard”, under the impression he was already a mau5trap artist, surprised when he found out he wasn’t via the stream chat. He loved the submission enough to bookmark it, and eventually include one of Julian’s tunes as a part of ‘Foar Moar Vol. 4’, mau5trap’s newest compilation. As a poke of fun back to the troll himself, Julian named his tune, ‘Resident Try-Hard’ and ironically included Joel’s livestream comments “It’s our local try hard”, and “F*cking hot garbage” as samples throughout. The song rocks. I love the way its progresses. From the gritty bass-lines, soft pads in the breakdown and the main melody flute-like sounds, to how he didn’t go the typical 4 on the floor style in typical House music, Julian gave this song life and variation that keeps the listener engaged. Check the track out below and give him a follow! He’s definitely one to look out for!
