Dutch DJ and record producer Julian Jordan best known for his massive collaborations with the likes of Sander Van Doorn and Martin Garrix, landed in Miami International Airport during Miami Music Week after a long flight from Amsterdam and went straight to the Nexus Radio Lounge for his very first interview.
“When I arrived […] it was like raining, so it wasn’t like the best welcome,” he said at first, but by the time we got to his interview, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Miami is known for sporadic storms that blow in and out within minutes, and eventually made it back remained sunny and in the upper 80’s the remainder of the day, “it looks good now, so I can’t wait to go outside,” he says during the interview.
Adam Turner: You came all the way from Amsterdam today. How long you in town for?
Julian Jordan: I go back on Monday. So, a few days of Miami madness to come.
Adam Turner: I know, right? Are you playing some shows?
Julian Jordan: Yeah, [I’m doing a show] tonight, and then it’s Ultra time! So, Sunday I’m doing the STMPD records stage at Ultra. I’m really looking forward for that one!
Speaking about Ultra Music Festival, Julian named UMF one of his all-time favorite festivals, and one he has been looking forward to playing all year.
“I have to say the whole experience is amazing. Like the vibe, everything, the crowd, I have to say it’s the best I’ve played and to be honest, I’ve been looking forward for this one like the whole year. And since STMPD records is doing the stage, it’s like old family going there. So, it’s gonna be good.”
His fiery new single “Back Fire” featuring Seth Hills is a festival-ready anthem that will certainly go over well with the masses attending the festival too. Inspired by his favorite Television show Peaky Blinders, we even suggested the perfect outfit for his set on the STMPD Records stage during UMF.
Adam Turner: If you had a time machine, which decade would you go back to?
Julian Jordan: I watch Peaky Blinders (British TV Show) right now. I want to see that era a lot.
Adam Turner: Is that like the 50’s, 40’s?
Julian Jordan: Yeah, yeah, yeah, but I don’t want to be in Holland in that period because…
Adam Turner: You want to be in London, right?
Julian Jordan: I want to be in London.
Adam Turner: Isn’t it set in London? I haven’t seen it yet.
Julian Jordan: Yeah, I think London or Belfast. I’m like only on the first or second episode […] but it looks like an interesting era. I want to just be dressed like that all the time [laughs].
Adam Turner: Maybe you should rock it! You know, maybe go to Ultra dressed like that.
