Electronic Music Production

Julian Telfer-Wan on SoundBetter

I'll make your music drip with character, emotion and impact.

Hey everyone, I'm Julian; an electronic music producer, DJ and recording artist from Vancouver, BC. My unique style is influenced by jazz, psychedelic rock and EDM, disco and old school hip-hop. If you're looking for electronic, dance, hip-hop, or R&B, I can provide you with a unique sound you won't find anywhere else.

My background comes from 10 years of playing and performing jazz music, both as an amateur and a professional. I've taken what I've learned from the jazz world and focused on electronic music production, working with local musicians, dancers and visual artists over the last 5 years.

I specialize in house music, including deep, tech, minimal and progressive. I also produce half-time trap and boom-bap and midtempo hip-hop, funk and ambient-focused music. I do custom sampling in all my mixes and can sample across a wide range of instruments in any of these genres.

I can master tracks and will do my best to make your mixes sound professional, authentic and completely original.

I can work with a variety of budgets and no matter the price, will provide you with the very best work I can do with my time. I'm open to working with producers, singers, composers and very beginners looking for some guidance.

Let me know what you want to accomplish and we can work together to achieve it. Looking forward to working with you.

  3. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  4. A: I am not a DJ! Although I do sometimes get on decks, most of my day consists of writing and composition, beat making and mixing.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: What audience are you trying to appeal to? Send me some examples of songs you want your project to sound like.

  7. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  8. A: There are a lot of great producers and engineers out there, so hire someone who will complement your style and specializes in the things you need.

  9. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  10. A: I used to be a salesman for an industrial supply company, but I decided the cookie cutter life wasn't for me. I've been making music ever since I was a kid, but have been producing for about 5 years now. Choosing music was the best decision I've ever made.

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?
