Julian Scanlan (born May 1, 1997), better known by his stage name Slushii, is an American DJ and electronic music producer based in Los Angeles. He is best known for working with artists managed by Moe Shalizi, such as Marshmello, Ookay and Jauz, and for gaining support from notable dub step musician and OWSLA-record label founder, Skrillex
Scanlan was born in Mount Laurel. He worked at Best Buy as a customer attendant in New Jersey at minimum wage. Scanlan was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, which he says interfered with his ability to make friends and read social cues. As a result, he was bullied in middle school.
He began his musical career by joining psychedelic power-pop band Deuteronomy for three years until 2012, releasing one album. He was a part of the musical duo “Monsters With Tiny Mustaches” alongside his partner MHKAZ. He graduated from Lenape High School in Burlington County, New Jersey.
He became involved with dance music in 2013, using “DJ Swoon” as an alias. One of his SoundCloud posts as DJ Swoon was taken down, having his account permanently deleted. His friend then convinced him to start a new musical project, which was when he first used the stage name “Slushii”.
