Julien Dyne

A Wellington drummer, percussionist, DJ, visual artist and producer, Julien Dyne first made his name on the drum seat for Auckland soul-funk outfit Opensouls, from their formation in 2002 until the band’s final live show in March 2011.

This led him to studio work collaborating with Fat Freddy’s Drop, Ladi6, Hollie Smith, Nathan Haines and others. His father Paul is a respected jazz musician, but as a teen Dyne was more drawn to punk, metal and hip-hop.
