Judge Jules has grown up and its gone all Pete tong for him. Back in his day he could have been the respectable dance DJ, but he has chosen to feel the force of the dark side. Yes commercialisation has set into him like foot and mouth has spread like wildfire in the farming industry. His movement from okish party DJ with a strange affliction of Trumpetitis to radio DJ is about the same bowel movement from Kiss 100 to Radio 1. Its strange that Radio 1 is playing catch up stealing London radio DJ’s and turning them in a national commercial parody. The Judges vocal skill style involves comparing something of rather meagre taste to something a bit more involving using words to cover up what the music is about, and his style does not seem to have changed the slightest which is why I have got bored of him. It is a shame I liked the Dance Wars Album with John Kelly and some of his older tapes and CDs, but the cheese has crept in and now this radio DJ has matured like Stilton.
Judge Jules is probably Radio 1’s most famous and popular DJs, and currently has his own show every Saturday afternoon, and on Fridays also I think! Although he doesn’t produce many songs, he does an awful lot of excellent remixes and helps to compile the compilation albums like Euphoria and The Annual – maybe not these exact ones, but stuff like this! His shows are superb. There is no question as to why he is a Radio presenter – he’s got talent and is good at the job, with a distinct voice – a rather worn out voice (from all the shouting ‘everybody in da house say yeah!’ et al…), but he always plays some superb tunes, especially exclusives and music from new artists – this is a great idea as it can help people to get into the music business. There’s a very ‘hard house’ theme to the programme, lots of bass and lots of rhythm in every show. The music can get boring, but there have been a lot of superb mixes of old tracks, and a lot of new up and coming songs getting the Radio 1 Judge Jules once over before they’re unleashed into the world! There are many special guests who appear on the show with him, and a lot of news has been told, as well as rumours of the music industry so it’s great for info! Great program, on Radio one 98-102 FM every Saturday from midday to around 6!
