We had the good fortune of connecting with Yules and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Yules, Let’s talk about principles and values – what matters to you most?
Fun. I think life is a very precious thing and that each day we get is truly a blessing and something that we need to be grateful for. Some days are even better than others and those always seem to be the days that I’m surrounded by Music and my Friends. The Yules Project is all about creating a fun atmosphere at a show or even online in how I interact with those around me. I hope to bring high energy and a unique experience to any set or performance. This will always create a fun atmosphere and that’s what always brings people back.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
One of my most proud moments was getting to play at the World Famous Avalon Theater in Hollywood. The energy was electric and the crowd was a blast to play for. It was really cool thinking how many other incredible talents had performed there before. The Yules Project hasn’t been a tough road and I haven’t allowed it to be one. The project is about having fun and embodying the true spirit of dance music and what our AZ community has to offer. I’ve learned a number of lessons along the way like always say yes to bigger gigs than you think you’re ready to play and learn on the spot, always prepare ahead of time for your sets, and always make sure you engage and read the crowd. It’s about curating the entire vibe for all the people you have to be connected with them.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would go to Shady Park for all of the Above. Shady Park is my favorite venue I’ve ever been fortunate enough to play at. It’s a true gem in Arizona and a staple in our dance music community. The food, atmosphere, and energy is unmactched.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Elwer, Ajency, and Ekonovah have all really been the catalyst to what helped get me into DJing. Ajency and I bought a mixer in 2018 from our good friend and just never really looked back. A few months later we had one of our first gigs at Pitch a Tent Music Festival up in Flagstaff, AZ which was an absolute blast. Elwer really was the one who helped me discover my love for House Music and find a deep apprecaition and respect for the Genre. Additionally he always was such a good example of a class act DJ in the Arizona Scene. Last but not least Ekonovah who’s been an inspiration and really pushed me to learn more about music and DJing just from being to so many of his shows and sets I’ve seen. I’m really lucky to have a great support system around me who helped me discover something I truly enjoy.
