Jullian Gomes - Late Dreamer
Release Date: 31st October
From the age of 13, Jullian Gomes secretly gambled every cent of his school lunch money on buying deep-house records; no doubt with the unknown knowledge that someday, these records would change his life forever. Only a few people know this but Jullian used to sneak, yes! sneak into local clubs in and around Pretoria / Tshwane from a very early age.
At this time nothing could stop this young man being 'in the moment' to enjoy the music that has now, amazingly, become his full time career. Maybe his parents will be ok with the knowledge of his secret nightlife now knowing how incredibly skilled and loved their son has become throughout the world of dance music.
Jullian Gomes is truly a very dedicated individual, and this young musical maestro has in just a few years leaped forward and galvanised a career for himself in a very competitive industry.
From his brief visit to London for the Red Bull Music Academy in 2010, to releasing his debut album 'Late Dreamer' in 2016, Gomes, with a lot of hard grafting built up his relationships and very quickly covered a lot of very bumpy and obstacle-ridden
ground to get him to where he is today.
To say this man is 'Here To Stay' is a massive understatement. Late Dreamer is unmistakably the sound of 'Jullian Gomes' - wonderfully laid back, thick chunky beat-ridden soulful house music featuring some incredible talent.
From the teachings of the wonderful wordsmith OVEOUS, to South Africa's most celebrated female in dance music 'Bucie', Liquid Deep's 'Ziyon' and talenteers Lazarusman, Daev Martin, Sio, Kabomo, Bobby, UK-based Sarai Jazz, and Martin Iveson. A clear and well thought out collection of songs, that together make a warm and
attractive addition to the world of electronic soul music.
This debut album started out its life in a spark of realisation with Jullian's mind working in overdrive thinking way back to a time where it all started for him.
Working his day job to make his daily bread and thereafter falling asleep in his home studio in the dark of night pushing to carve his musical career. Waking up one morning 'late' to go to his day job, he asked himself the question "What am I late for?" this lead to Jullian's priorities shifting wildly planting the seed that he may be too
late to follow the dreams he had for all these years.
This album and indeed Gomes' whole musical career is the biggest leap of faith he has ever taken and it sure has paid off. Jullian may be in his own eyes a 'Late Dreamer', yet he has proved time and time again that dreams can come true if you believe.
