Josh One – Passing Through

3 Comments

joshonelogoFor over ten years, DJ/Producer Josh One has found a way to separate himself from the rat race of cookie cutter producers. From the anthemic to the most eclectic riddims, you wont be able to label or categorize him. I have known Josh for quite some time, I met him through one of my best friends in the music game, Lewis Kunstler. When I first met Josh, it was around the time he went platinum with his Grammy nominated remix of Nappy Roots “Po Folks”. Just prior to that he released his first record in 2001 titled “Contemplation” and rose to the top of the European dance charts. You see, Josh has always had the gift, an inherent quality that helped him establish the highly influential collective, Abstract Workshop dating back to the mid 90′s with partner, Cocoe.

I worked with Josh alot when I was a music supervisor doing shows for Fuel TV. His music created the perfect soundscape to action sports, the different textures of organic melodies and basslines quickly became my favorite to synch with the most amazing snowboarding, surfing, and skateboarding footage.
