Joash is a London based producer who started his musical career as a drummer. Long before he developed a love for dance music, buying early records by Plastikman, Laurent Garnier and other techno pioneers. At the same time, having borrowed a Serge Gainsbourg album from a friend, Joash was blown away by the mixture of jazz and orchestral sounds that still sounded fresh.
He started listening to many old maestros including Lalo Schifrin, Krzysztof Komeda and Ennio Morricone as well as more recent acts such as 4Hero, The Cinematic Orchestra or Xploding Plastix. From Jazz artists to Techno producers, all have played their part to influence the music
that he produces now.
His debut track ‘Salome’ was selected for Compost Record’s highly acclaimed ‘Future Sound Of Jazz’ compilation, and his debut album ’Don’t Fear It, Fight It" and subsequent remixes (including a remix of Funk D’Void’s classic ‘Diabla’) have received praise from both critics and fellow producers.
“Orchestral future pop. The spirited way Joash presents his dramatic blueprint of pop, that is carried by strings, is jaw- dropping when you listen to it the first time. It forms itself to a brilliant amalgam which thinks of Pop one step ahead. This is what makes “Don’t Fear It, Fight It” a timeless album.
