Winner of a huge list of DJ awards, Dance DJ Judge Jules has earned his place amongst the DJ aristocracy. Judge Jules’ DJ sets are the epitome of what DJing is about – passion and crowd-connection, memorable tunes and hands capable of the most mouth-watering mixing. Booking Judge Jules will create a storm at your event!
Judge Jules first took to the decks as a new kid on the block in the late eighties whilst studying law at university, hence the ‘Judge’. This launched a DJ career that went on to notch up millions of miles, thousands of pairs of decks rocked and countless gigs in far-flung destinations, as well as the odd dirty warehouse thrown in for good measure.
Judge Jules has earned his place amongst the DJ aristocracy with such accolades as – Best DJ (Muzik Awards), No.1 DJ (Mixmag readers’ poll), Best International DJ (Dancestar Awards), and Best Radio DJ at the Smirnoff Dancestars and regular Top 10 positioning in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s poll, peaking at no. 3 in the world!!
Clubs, Festivals and Ibiza
Judge Jules is one of the most popular, in-demand and influential figures in dance music, playing some of the most sought-after gigs, both on his home turf of the United Kingdom and around the globe. Time is divided between club shows and large-scale festival appearances.
They say that you haven’t achieved iconic status as a DJ until you have established yourself in Ibiza, and Judge Jules’ presence on the dance island is legendary. Judge Jules was the first electronic music DJ to establish and promote his own weekly branded Ibiza night. Fifteen years later that event, Judgement Fridays (formerly Judgement Sundays), still rocks the legendary party island. In 2014, Judgement Fridays runs from June 20th – September 26th at the iconic Es Paradis, pitching Judge Jules alongside the true aristocracy of dance.
Judge Jules’ podcast is one of the most subscribed to on the planet, pitching in a whacking 750,000 downloads per week. His weekly dispensation of the must-hear new music is an institution in its own right, with guest mixes introducing important new artists alongside those of superstars of the scene, including Armin van Buuren and Dash Berlin. This heady combination of new music and featured mixes means Judge Jules’ podcast constantly features in the upper echelons of the iTunes chart as one of the most popular DJ podcasts in the world.
Radio and TV
Judge Jules has enjoyed a long and hugely influential radio heritage over two decades, with Kiss FM, then BBC Radio 1, and his international Global Warm Up show, winning numerous awards and plaudits from music fans and fellow DJs along the way. The Global Warm Up is currently broadcast weekly on over 70 stations around the world, including Sirius XM across the United States and North America. Judge Jules also presents a weekly music TV show which is broadcast throughout Europe on Clubland TV.
Producing / Writing / A&R
Judge Jules has released over 100 productions and remixes to date, plus three artist albums, and has been busy in the studio in 2014 with a stack of top-notch tracks and remixes released on his own imprints “Junkster” and “Judgement Recordings” as well as on Paul van Dyk’s Vandit label, rocking dancefloors worldwide. His 2014 track “Collide” peaked at no 1 on the Beatport chart, and Monte Carlo, released on Vandit in spring 2014, made a massive impact on Dancefloors around the world, reaching number 2 on the iTunes dance chart.
Judge Jules has mixed countless DJ mix compilations for Ministry Of Sound, Universal and Warner Bros, including the legendary Ministry Annuals, Clubbers’ Guide and Trance Nation brands. Altogether Judge Jules has racked up well over three million compilation sales, with many releases reaching Platinum, Gold and Silver status. In fact, so many that he soon ran out of home wall space for gold disks.
In 2012, Judge Jules decided to put his legal training to use, becoming a music and entertainment lawyer for part of the week, whilst DJing for the remainder. He now represents DJs, managers, promoters, labels, publishers, talent and other related industry types, putting his years of experience in every field of music to good use. Although seemingly very different jobs, Judge Jules’ roles as DJ and lawyer are symbiotic and maintain Judge Jules’ position as a key industry ‘player’ as well as player of great tunes.

Megan Chungh – Park Hotel, Newcastle
Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
