#sxsw #JWLS


Julio Mejia aka JWLS is a 20 year old electronic music producer based in Miami, Florida. Known to make many tribal beats that are satisfyingly addicting to music listeners’ ears, JWLS is an upcoming producer in the electro house and moombahton scene. Being drawn to the vast world of music, JWLS taught himself how to play guitar and drums at age 7, and by age 14 was playing lead trumpet in school band. Learning the in’s and out’s of music through years of schooling, JWLS then began experimenting with full on production at age 19, when a friend exposed him to Fruity Loops. After that it was all downhill from there, when JWLS began to incorporate his major Latin and Hip Hop influences into his music. Gaining the attention from the likes of Laidback Luke, Dave Nada, Munchi, Peace Treaty and many others, JWLS is already making an impact on the electronic music scene.

JWLS also has a project called “GTA” in which he collaborates with producer Van Toth. Also sure to be a heavy hitter on the electronic music scene, expecting a release on Wall Recordings and getting more support from Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Digital LAB, and more. 2011 is sure to be a big year for JWLS, so keep an eye out for this music monster!
