VINYL DINOSAURS AIN'T EXTINCT! With his hands in many projects, Joshua Adams certainly keeps busy. Since the late nineties, he has garnered attention in various forms. On one hand, Josh, as a drummer has been playing since eight years old in everything from funk, jazz, rock, punk, reggae, hip hop, dance and classical groups. On hand percussion, Joshua has performed from Miami to Chicago, from Los Angeles and back to Detroit, including several years at the DEMF with Drum & Bass DJ Kruse Kontrol and Keith Worthy. He has also recorded percussion for Roy Davis Jr. and Waajeed (Platinum Pied Pipers). Joshua began DJing in 1999 and has taken his diverse influences in hand to develop unique exclusively vinyl DJ sets drawing from many different directions. He has been known to do everything from obscure, quirky house and broken beat, '80s breaks, disco, funk, and everything in between. He has held many residencies at various venues in Detroit over the years and performed at WMC since 2006. In 2009, Josh, along with Paul Katcher started the record label Exchange Bureau music releasing almost 30 releases to date. Josh began producing with Katcher in 2009 as The British Knights releasing "Love Sic" (also debuting Joshua's vocals). In 2010, Affilates Program (Adams & El Mahdi Obeid) released "Syncopated" on the EXB Imprint and The British Knights remixed Progress Report for Detroit label Superior Belly. Look for Joshua's debut solo, Bowie-esque '80s throwback "Changing Lanes" out soon.
