Have to echo the comment below, albeit 11 years after it was written. Jules for me was everything awesome about late 90s/early00s clubland in the UK. Admittedly he struggled with mixes on occasion, but hey he was the real deal. And back then everyone was a "proper dj" - vinyl purist alert!!

His saturday night radio 1 warm up show was epic, playing every tune that we knew we were going to hear at Gatecrasher/Godskitchen/Slinky that night and we would all write the names of the tunes down and beeline for HMV/HTFR on the monday morning to add to our collection. Heck. the fist 15 records i ever purchased were his set on Ministry of Sound annual IV!!

Saw him play a fair few terrible sets, but Gatecrasher, he always rose to the occasion. Nice one Julesy.

Judge Jules certainly has his haters, but then, he is a very easy target. However, had it not been for me hearing this guy on BBC Radio 1 on a rain soaked, freezing, October Friday night in 1998 whilst i was driving around Peterborough aimlessly having just passed my driving test, i would probably not be into DJing or house music today.

I was just causally listening when i remember vividly hearing Jules play the Rhythm Masters remix of Golden Girls "Kinetic". Thats it, i was hooked. 17 at the time and instantly hooked on house music.

Of course, after that moment, i transformed into a regular listener week in week out. I then started to hit the spots he was DJing in, Turnmills, Passion, Gatecrasher, Slinky etc. I then decided to buy some turntables later that year, and well, the rest is history.

To this day, I'm still an avid fan of Jules, i still think that when it comes to rocking a crowd, Jules has still got it and in my eyes he is still the best. I don't know why i like listening to him so much, i think i look for the same things in a record as Jules does. I also still listen to his BBC Radio 1 Weekend Warmup show EVERY week, the only difference is, now I'm 26!

He has a 6th sense at picking out records that usually end up huge before most people even know about them, I've always been a fan of his mixing style and in the flesh he's a top bloke to boot. Thank you Jules for showing me DJing, for showing me clubbing and more importantly showing me house!
