The two Viennese producers Julian Hruza and Dominic Plainer, aka Lupo, aka Der Fux, knew each other for a while before they decided to launch the duo project Julian & Der Fux in 2012. The first single “Speckbrot” and its video (featured at the Crossing Europe Film Festival in Linz and the Vienna Independent Shorts Festival) was an instant success, laying an excellent foundation for future ventures. Several hit singles and successful collaborations later, 2016 Julian & der Fux released their debut album “Vanille”, which climbed the charts and blew it up in Austria.
The following singles „Altes Ego“ and „Hin Und Weg“ achieved placements in the top 5 and higher in the FM4 charts and were great successes, as was their collaboration with the producer and DJ Ken Hayakawa. In the same time the great remix compilation „Mischwald Kapitel Eins“ appeared with contributions from Bernhard Fleischmann, Burnin Tears, Denis Yashin and many other Austrian artists. Among other highlights of the last years were the new interpretation of „Wie Geht Es?“ from the Erste Wiener Heimorgelorchester, which was part of the release „Transformator 1“ on Monkey music, as well as contributions to the FM4 Sound Selection- and Sunny Side Up-Compilation, to name a few.
Latest release „Mr. King“, a fresh song in the new Viennese sound. Included with the release were new remixes of various classics, among others from Gomma founder Telonius and MOTSA. The new interpretation of „Voodoo“ from the electrorokoko formation Johann Sebastian Bass, which was transformed to „Wuuduu“, again shows their versatility. In their both energized and danceable shows the duo takes their audience on a voyage under the shadows of the night along the human abysses to the euphoric arrival of dawn.
