Song of the Day: Ferrari – Julian Mika

North West Londoner JULIAN MIKA‘s latest single ‘Ferrari’ is a dream-trap joint exploring the thin line between what’s real and what’s fake.

At the age of 17, Julian, alongside childhood friend Ryo, formed music group Grand Wa Zoo and dropped two well-received projects under Scope Music Management. Mika now drops his debut solo project ‘LinkPhone’ and with ‘Ferrari’ being the first taste of what’s to come, it’s set to make a statement. ‘Ferrari’ is a melodic dream-trap banger with London injections, drawing inspirations from his favourite heavyweights in the scene such as J Hus, Benji Flow and Octavian. With lyrics like.

Speaking on the track Julian states:

“The lines between a fantasy, a lie and the truth have become blurred. Ferrari’s about navigating yourself within the maze at high speed”.

Born in Rome to a Sicilian mother, Julian moved from city-to-city throughout his childhood before settling in the UK at aged 10. His turbulent background and constant reintroduction to different, unfamiliar cultures and societies caused him to have a warped view on life, often feeling like an outsider looking in. With this perspective that always let him see things from a step back, Julian turned to music as a vice for his unique thoughts.

With support for his previous single ‘Pattern’ from Dummy Mag completely organically, it’s clear Julian’s music appeals to the masses. He’s now ready to level up and make a statement. His forthcoming EP ‘LinkPhone’ toys with the symbolism of a typical ‘burner phone’ representing the simple yet needed link between Julian and his audience. Not only this but it also symbolises the function of what phones are used for at the core, conversation, without distraction from anything else (social media) and Julian wants this to be represented while listening to ‘LinkPhone’.

With talent in music, along with impeccable imagery and style Julian Mika is a be a force to be reckoned with in London’s rapidly evolving scene. ‘Ferrari’ takes us on a journey through Julian’s mind as an outsider looking in and with a full EP set to drop very soon…Check him out below…
