Throughout his high school years, Joshua played in as many groups as possible, covering a wide variety of music, including jazz, classical, gospel, rock, funk and hip-hop. He was able to travel and compete in jazz festivals, even touring Japan in the Monterey Jazz Festival All-Star High School Big Band. Although his original intention was to attend a conservatory in New York, Joshua ended up in Los Angeles and ultimately completed his masters degree in Jazz Studies at USC. During this time, Joshua found a new love in electronic music and began to DJ locally. As his favorite experience at USC was composing for the big band and hearing his work come to life, he naturally began producing his own music.
His first proper house track entitled 'You Wanna Dance?' was picked up by Grab Recordings in the summer of 2005. Soon after it was released in Feburary 2006, it became a favorite of world renowned dj/producer Miguel Migs. Miguel liked "that combo of funk, soul, bump and grit to rock the dancefloor" so much, that he signed Joshua's second release to his label, Salted Music, and has made Joshua an exclusive Salted artist. Josh's Coldcuts Ep has been a staple in record bags worldwide since its release in december 06' (Inland Knights, Fred Everything & DJ Mes to name a few) the 'Funky like a Foot Ep' on DAE Recordings hit the streets of WMC 07' with a fury & 'Casafiesta' was dubbed one of the tracks of the conference!!! Stay tuned for the 'Turnin Tables Ep' on Salted, and a collaborative release with Troydon on Drop to follow that!!! Read more on Last.fm.
