Legend has it that Detroit is the birthplace of techno. If that's the case, then it's no surprise that Josh Karmin quickly climbed the ropes of success, beginning his career in the Motor City a decade ago. Using edits, mashups and remixes, Karmin delivers a sound that is different from other electronic artists in the biz, resulting in high demand performances all over the country. Karmin’s DJ career, while rooted in Detroit, originated in Windsor-Canada and expands to the underground club scene of Toronto and Montreal. Fast forward ten + years later, and Josh has performed at some of the premier nightclubs festivals and events in North America, including stops in Detroit, Miami, Chicago, Windsor, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, London and Columbus, alongside some of the worlds most respected dance music DJ’s and producers.
Karmin flawlessly blends the sounds of vocal, progressive and tech house, infused with tribal percussion, techy stabs, climbing buildups and driving bass lines. His versatility in the DJ booth helps bring the party from ordinary to extraordinary. Now based in Toronto, Josh has taken his musical abilities from the decks to the studio, as he works on producing his own unique style of original tracks, edits, mashups and remixes.
"I believe Josh’s true calling is in his music and the way he performs in front of a crowd. Trust me, it is not easy to perform in front of 10,000 people and not let something slip. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to Josh Karmin from day one. The first time I encountered him, he made a room of 10 people dance (which for those who don’t know is harder than making 10 000 people dance). Today, Josh performs at some of the hottest clubs on the continent. His star continues to shine and like many in his family is an artist... a great one.”
