In addition, Scanlan was one-half of the duo Monsters With Tiny Mustaches. His musical style includes contemporary EDM production combining dubstep drops, trap drums, giddy trance synths, and helium vocals.
He was born on May 1, 1997, in the United States.
Julian grew up in Mount Laurel, a township in Burlington County, New Jersey. Scanlan graduated from Lenape High School in Burlington County.
Scanlan began his musical career by joining the band Deuteronomy for about 3 years until 2012, releasing one album, titled – ”Propaganda.”
In 2013, Julian became involved with dance music, using “DJ Swoon” as an alias. He said:
”I had an alias before. I was making music under another alias “DJ Swoon” and Soundcloud went ahead and terminated my account.”
Scanlan later added:
”They were doing the whole purge thing with the remix and copyright stuff. I was broken up about that.”
Shortly after the removal of his previous alias, Julian decided to start a new musical project.
Scanlan released his remix of Zedd (a Russian-German DJ and record producer who mainly produces electro house music) and Selena Gomez’s “I Want You To Know,” that was his 1st official project under the stage name “Slushii.”
In 2006, Scanlan has signed for Red Light Management. Other artists that are part of this company are:
- Chris Stapleton;
- Alabama Shakes;
- Luke Bryan;
- Dave Matthews Band.
On May 20, 2016, Scanlan self-released a 7-track extended play, named – “Brain Freeze.”
In 2017, for the single “Twinbow,” Julian collaborated with Marshmello (an American electronic music producer and DJ).
In the same year, he released a dubstep single named “Catch Me.” The single was described as an upbeat, trap step-inspired and bass-heavy track.
Later that year (2017), Scanlan released a studio album named – ”Out of Light.” The album contains 13 songs, including “Dear Me.”
In 2019, he leased a single named – ”Dreaming Of You.”
During an interview, Julian said:
“I’m super excited to be releasing ‘Dreaming of You’ with my Monstercat family. I’ve had this song done for a while and been waiting for the right time and partner to put it out with.”
Scanlan went on to say:
”I can’t think of a better way to kick off my tour in April than putting this song out so I can play it for all the fans while I’m on the road.”
He started his YouTube channel on March 27, 2012. The channel has more than 402,000 subscribers and over 32 million views.

“Am I king of the nerds yet.”
”I met this girl once and she just started crying. It was cool. It’s crazy.”
”I’m already working the next project because of the Asperger’s and it’s kind of a tunnel vision way of living, I guess. I just never stop working.”
”I try to do everything. Some of its dubstep, some of its future bass, some of its pop, some of its hip-hop, but I don’t know.”
”Ever since I was little, I was bullied in school, I had all these kinds of moments in my life where I felt down and I figured, my music is very uplifting.”
Scanlan has produced many remixes of popular artists including Zedd’s hit song “I Want You To Know.” Zedd is an international DJ who was commissioned to produce ARTPOP. At the 2013 MTV Music Video Awards, Zedd received a nomination for Artist To Watch. In the same year, Zedd was nominated for the Next Pop Superstar of 2013 Award at the Popdust ceremonies.
Julian was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, that he says interfered with his ability to read social cues and make friends.
While people with Asperger’s syndrome struggle socially, specifically with social interaction and communication, they have normal cognitive abilities and language development.
Asperger’s syndrome was first described in the 1940s by Viennese pediatrician Hans Asperger. As of 2013, AS is known as a mild form of autism spectrum disorder. The cause of AS is unknown.
Some common signs of AS include the following:
- difficulty understanding the nuances of language;
- may be extremely literal;
- difficulty making friends of the same age;
- may speak in a voice that is monotone or unusually fast;
- seems egocentric or self-absorbed;
- engages in one-sided, long-winded conversations;
- doesn’t engage in “small talk”;
- may have difficulty understanding humor;
- has a hard time “reading” other people;
- does not empathize with or seems insensitive to others’ feelings;
- displays unusual nonverbal communication, like – awkward body gestures and postures, few facial expressions, or lack of eye contact.
