WIN tickets to Julio Bashmore

Mathew Walker from Bristol burst onto the scene in late 2009 as his Julio Bashmore EP was released through Claude VonStroke’s highly influential Dirtybird label. 
 
Channeling the tastes of his older brothers through hip-hop cassettes, Julio’s interest in electronic music began in earnest after hearing Daft Punk’s “Da Funk”, which was handily around the time that turntables arrived in the house via his elder sibling. 
 
At the age of 14 he began to explore various sounds with synthesizers and guitars, playing in bands for a brief period, but by the time he was old enough to experience club culture firsthand, Julio had made the realisation that DJing was the true vehicle in which to deliver his music. 
 
After spending many nears perfecting his trade, his breakthrough EP also meant a difficult decision – on the cusp of leaving for university Julio decided instead to remain in Bristol and make production and DJing as his primary focus. 
 
His hard work and dedication soon paid off as Au Seve, the first release on his own label, Boardwalk Records, shot into the UK Top 100 in October 2012 fully pushing him into the mainstream.
 
Tickets for his headline show in The Academy on Friday the 20th of February are on sale now for €22.90 from Ticketmaster.ie and outlets nationwide.
 
This show is over 18s, I.D is required.
