Originally from Myrtle Beach, he started off as a breakdancer and found his way to the turntables through the back door. "It was pretty simple - I wanted to emulate the heroes that made me and my friends all dance. I feel in love with it immediately"
He started collected EDM records first, and then his friend got him into Hip Hop, and from there into scratching, beat juggling, and turntablism. He continued playing for fun & in 2003 he got his first professional DJ residency at Souya in Wilmington where he was the resident for 3 years before moving to Raleigh and taking a position at a local DJ Company in 2010 where he met and started working with Jason Huggins.

Josh is an acolyte of the total experience, and you see his attention to detail in his mixes & his artwork.
"It's about making people happy. And, just like painting, you can't just show up and hope it works out - you've got to be ready and responsive to what the situation calls for."

WHAT A FUN NIGHT! From cocktail hour and dinner to getting people on the dance floor....JOSH is your D.J. John and I were thrilled to have Josh as our wedding D.J. He is extremely professional, a great listener and has new ideas to share if you are looking for fun ways to spice your dance list; makes for a great wedding video! Friends and family are still coming up to me in awe about my father and daughter dance-mix.Josh was very easy to work with when planning the best songs for each dance to make a special and memorable night and patient when helping us navigate through the resource links. We have met or spoken to others on the team (Frankie and Peter) and felt anyone on the team was always extremely helpful in answering all of our questions and very professional. We would recommend their services to anyone and look forward to using them again in the future. They are 100% the prefect choice for any occasion ! :)Marissa
