About

Josh McClintock (Curious Josh, Joshua,Josh from NY) started DJing in the summer of '91. Hugely inspired by West coast legends Doc Martin, Barry Weaver, Mr Buzz (Acid Hits), and the Wicked Crew he fell in love with the underground acid house sound and would push this sound forward in his sets.
He was fortunate enough to have some really cool friends that nurtured his DJing early on and he began to have his own style. His parents were pretty cool too...letting him have many parties at his house (plus being able to bang it out loud all day) which helped as well.The first party he spun at was a going away party for Ron D Core in '92. A residency at Middle Earth (along with Dj's Markem X, David Alvarado, Frank C, and Tom Stimuli) followed later that year. But it wasn't until he started to release his "Acid Junky" mixtape series http://simfonik.com/2011/02/josh-mcclintock-acid-junky-vol-1/ that his Djing really started to take off. These mixes got him gigs all over Los Angeles and San Diego as well as opening up for Doc Martin @ "Unlock the House". Josh McClintock UTH October1995 by anmrecs1
In 1996 at the height of his popularity he moved to NY to be near his family. Being a little burnt out on the scene in L.A. it was a welcome change....not too mention the dozens of used record stores in the city. During his first year there his collection doubled thanks to stores like Satellite Records, Sonic Groove, Temple, Disco Rama,Throb, and Dance Trax. Not to mention the recs he was getting from Daddy's records in SF and WAX (his best friends Juan Nunez and Little Chris), and straight from Doc Martin. In all honesty...gigs were scarce for Josh in NY. His West Coast style didnt go over well and his lack of friends out there made it difficult to break in. He would still fly back occasionally to play parties such as "Free Thinking", "WAX", and "Sublevel". In 2001 he had a year long residency at a little place in the Village called "TRIBE" that was kinda fun...but other than that it was just caveman style solo sessions at his little apartment in Spanish Harlem. Many epic sets were recorded during this time and he really came into his own style and matured as a DJ. But things started to dry up...no more gigs...his friends in NY didn't really appreciate that music...and in 2006 he considered himself retired. Never sold his records though. Not 1.
In 2008 his job asked him to help open a new location in Beverly Hills and moved him back out. He immediately reimmersed himself in the L.A. underground. And thanks to parties like Sarcastic Disco, Sublevel, Making Shapes....and especially Sunny Side Up and MFD...his love for dance music was reaffirmed. 2 critical compenents were also discovered...Youtube and Discogs. Many holy grail records were found quickly and his collection...now standing at 9,200 vinyls...is a house music lover's heaven. It was also during this time that he was introduced to the slower chuggy blissed out music that was being played at these parties. He had been experimenting with downtempo music in NY over the years and had always loved ethereal balearic sounding music even in highschool (The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Slowdive) He began to incorporate this sound into his sets giving him a more eclectic feel. In 2010 he moved back out to L.A. for good and has been very busy in the scene. Highlite sets at parties such as Sunny Side Up, FutureHouse, MFD, Downtown, Hang Together, Rice n Beats, Devotion, Bionic (SF), 5 Star Bar,Space Walk, and recently @ JACK (Opening for Psychmagik and Brett Johnson).

He is a dedicated all vinyl DJ...but realizes that good music is good music......just as long as you have 2 working turntables for him to play on.

    @Cry-baby: Thanks! Naw dude... I post the tracks because I believe in sharing the music. I post them on all my mixes. Maybe it will turn somebody on to an artist that he or she is unfamiliar with. I think it also benefits the artist rather than posting a mix with no info. Thanks for listening dude. Enjoy!

    Very impressive Mr Callon! WOW! You are on the right track dude! Some straight up tunes in this joint! Hopefully some of these get signed and make it to vinyl so I can rock'em! If not...then just another huge reason for me to buy a pair of cdj's. But yo.....fucking well done bro. You are on to something here. My full support! That "let yourself go" track is definitely my fave.
