Joshua Roberts is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and energetic young DJ’s on the circuit. Soon after learning to mix at just 11 years of age, he was already being recognized for both his mixing ability and his capability to move the crowd. Having already graced the top radio station in his region (Kiss) with his presence at the age of 15, he then became a national champion two years later at just 17, winning the BBC Radio 1 & UKCC National Young DJ Search; a nationwide competition for 14 – 17 year olds to showcase their mixing talents. Following a summer touring the UK, he was invited to open proceedings at Radio 1’s One Big Weekend in Birmingham. Joshua did what he does best and duly delivered an unforgettable performance to over 4,000 party go-ers, setting the mood for some of the biggest names in the dance music industry.
Already at 22 years of age Josh has played across the globe, making him one of the most well traveled DJ’s for his age. He has also appeared on BBC1, MTV Dance and been featured in DJ Mag. After spending the summer of 2007 rocking some of the coolest parties at the Ministry of Sound beach club & the world’s first Hed Kandi Beach bar out in the Red Sea, he joined forces with both brands and rocked many a dance floor as a resident for some of their top UK & worldwide dates. “This was a great opportunity to take my sound & style of play to a worldwide audience” beams Josh. He also looks forward to continuing his residency with BBC Radio 1 superstars ‘The Cut up boys’, keeping their nationwide tour well and truly rocking!
Josh is renowned for his fresh and creative style of play, and best describes his style as “Funky, Uplifting, Dirty and Delightful” His energetic and charismatic presence behind the decks is something which has been noticed across the board, not to mention his unpredictable, exciting approach to mixing and phenomenal technical ability. “I love being creative with my tunes. Mixing, cutting and scratching my way through my sets whilst getting the crowd hyped up to the max”, something which has gained him major recognition and earned him bookings alongside the likes of Tiesto, David Guetta, Fatboy Slim, Judge Jules, Brandon Block, Bodyrox, Calvin Harris, Adam Sheridan & more!
2008 saw Josh solidify his standing as one of the best newcomers to the scene, spending the majority of the summer jetting back and forth to the ‘White Isle’ Ibiza to rock some of the biggest and best parties the Island has to offer! Having stunned the masses at superclubs such as Eden, El Divino and Es Paradis he was rightfully rewarded a weekly residency at Play2 in San Antonio, along with other regular slots at Ibiza Rocks and numerous boat parties across the Island. By the end of the season, Wednesday nights at Play2 were a guaranteed road block, with Josh using his incredible mixing, intertwined with impeccable cutting and scratching to mastermind an unrivaled atmosphere week in week out!
This year he’s been booked to play parties out in South Africa, Belgium, Mauritius, Egypt & Bahrain not to mention sets at world famous venues in Ibiza and a residency for the 2011 season on the white isle.
