Riding on the successful campaign of his latest album Late Dreamer, South African DJ sensation and producer Jullian Gomes surprised his fans with a video for the hit track 1000 Memories. This is the first video off Jullian Gomes’ album and the catchy song features the talented vocalist, Sio. The ingenious video was made in Italy by a renowned animation company which chose to make it in stop motion, a process of manipulating paper and/or still objects to appear as though they are moving. This kind of innovation and attention to detail encapsulates Jullian Gomes’ vision and work ethic.

The story in the 1000 Memories video follows a woman that falls in love with a man but wonders if he knows of her existence. The pair live on opposite sides of town limiting their chances of interaction. Although he is oblivious to her existence when their paths cross, the woman holds on to the hopes that one day he will notice her and in turn they could take chance at love.
On how 1000 Memories single and music video speaks to him as an artist, Jullian Gomes shares: ‘’As an artist it tells me to never be afraid of following your dreams and that the longer you lock your dreams up, the longer you can’t have them. You have to take the leap of faith.”
The release of 1000 Memories was paired with an ongoing social media challenge #1000Memories on Instagram which saw the DJ share old images of him when he was still starting out. Several celebrities including Tamara Dey and Kid Fonque joined in the fun.
Since his first big break in 2003, Jullian Gomes’ career has only soared upward and his love for production and his skill-set has grown steadily with it.
Having been invited to play at several festivals including Oppikoppi, Rocking the Daisies, Cape Town Electronic Music Festival and securing a dream slot at Sonar Festival in Barcelona, one of the most highly regarded music festivals in the world, Jullian Gomes’ name precedes him and he is rightfully holding the South African flag high in the House Music scene both locally and internationally.
Jullian Gomes’ inclusion into such prestigious and notable festivals is testament to the hard work and many years of plying his trade as an avid music fan, producer and DJ.
