His was first musically influenced by Bob Dylan and Rolling Stones records. He dug deeper into his parents record bin and found that there was a wide variety of music he enjoyed. At an early age Josh began playing the guitar and bass in a few bands. After learing to play the drums he got involved in EDM & started listening to downtempo and Drum N Bass. He developed an acute sense of what people wanted to hear by going to shows and seeing what really moved the audience. His musical journey in electronic music took Josh from downtempo to trance, to breaks, out there and back again to all different types of music that makes the dance floor move.
While Josh Wickham plays a variety of electronic music. One thing remains constant: huge nasty bass lines and beats you can’t help but shake your body to! He is known for mixing quality sets that are deep and energetic.
“I’m into this music because I love it! The hot heavy bass lines and non stop rhythm mixed with percussion is something I just can’t get enough of… I see cats doing this DJ/club routine, all too often, for the wrong reasons. I bring my positive energetic vibes to my music and onto the dance floor for everybody. I have an insatiable ear palette which is why I think I love house music so much. It always changes and evolves just like life. You can really hear that in the tunes I produce.” -Josh Wickham
