Tallinn 73

Real Name:
Julius Talvik
Originally hailing from Tallinn, Estonia the now 10-year fixture of Washington, DC's underground music scene, Tallinn 73 aka Julius Talvik aka DJ Julius founded his first weekly residency series "MOOV" in early 1995 (held at the Rasputin Lounge, later moved to Bar Nun). Featuring deep house music, "MOOV" also hosted a regular drum'n'bass hour at the end of each night and thus provided the first regular venue for jungle madness in the nation's capital.

In the summer of 1996, Step Ahead Records boss Aou Pakdee introduced Julius to Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation (Eighteenth Street Lounge Music), who invited him to establish a weekly residency at the not-yet opened afterhours club "Red". What followed is now recited as a seminal intelligent drum'n'bass series --"The Lab/Soundlab"-- co-resided with Tyler Askew (Straight No Chaser magazine).

In early 2000 Julius founded the Grooved!strict co-op with partner in crime and long-time associate John Johnson. From the abstract to afro-beat, future funk, broken beat, real jazz and nu jazz, deep house and the new Philly sound, Julius and partners worked the non-4/4 end of the underground musical spectrum to significant critical acclaim, eventually landing on the cover of the Washington Post's Weekend Entertainment Guide as a 'must see in DC', and the Grooved!strict label which released a few DJ-mix compilation albums.

Spring 2002 saw Julius making his debut on the Umblu label by the name of Tallinn 73. Together with fellow labelmate Kalm, they issued a full-length spilt-CD "Autopiloot", much to critical acclaim, mixing broken beat with obscure jazz and pop samples from 60s. At the moment Julius is working on a solo follow-up due to be released sometime in the future.
