Julio Hardaway (@JulioHardaway)


Julio Hardaway is a 22-year-old producer from the Eastside of Chicago. He started making beats at the age of 19 and got his first placement with Chicago’s Rico Recklezz after just 6 months of producing. On top of that the beat which was used by Rico Recklezz was actually casually made by Julio when sitting in a McDonalds parking lot. Julio is very versatile when it comes to genres, branching out from Trap/Drill to Soulful Hip-Hop, commercial Hip-Hop, RnB and even Cloud Rap. He also greatly enjoys working with samples and enjoys creating hybrid sounding beats by using trap drums over vocal samples. In the future Julio hopes to work with more underground artists from Chicago and all over the U.S., and aims to develop his sound with talented artists who have already established a buzz for themselves.
