Music is my life.
19 years old, from Singapore
It has been over 10 years since his first love for EDM music. Just like any other individual, Joshen had settled down in his area of interest as it made him feel most at home. Constantly exposed to a variety of eurodance and hands-up sounds since the age of 8, he inevitably found his love in trance music a few years later. However, this did not end here.
Joshen took on a progressive and melodic stance from the start and started to exercise his knowledge in mixing programs such as Mixmeister Fusion since 2007 to exhibit his flow of sound through DJ mixes. After coincidentally listening to his first live trance broadcast, "A State of Trance 350", he found himself in love with the line-up DJs which were also the first few known to him and explored their music. It only took him a little more time to dwell into the depths of harder, energetic and more uplifting trance.
Currently, he has been drawing inspiration and influences from outstanding trance artists and DJs like Arctic Moon, Suncatcher, Bryan Kearney, Photographer, ReOrder, Thomas Datt, Daniel Kandi, just to name a few. Their presence made Joshen wonder what it would be like to be a music producer. With little delay, he picked up a great pace in music production in 2010 within a short period of time, utilising his knowledge of the piano garnered since the age of 6.
Based in Singapore, he has spun in venues such as Avalon and Home Club, exposing the crowd to melodic sounds rarely heard before by the majority. Fueled with infinite passion and burning determination in music, he wishes to spread the love of music to more clubs in the future and show the world how music could be used as a powerful tool to reunite people.
Joshen's career has recently took a step higher with the collaboration between Dr Foo as a duo, calling themselves "Hypnotic Visage". Managed by Taufik Tahir's Ommission, they look forward to soar to greater heights in the future. Joshen is also part of Trance Republic, the largest trance music community in Singapore.
