Sprouting from bonafide rock star roots, hotly tipped London based DJ and Producer jozif has been immersed in music and inspiration his whole life. Following a number of years DJing across the UK, jozif’s forays into production began in 2005, and after taking time out from his hectic schedule in 2009 to focus on honing his sound, the highly passionate, gregarious and wildly talented artist has hit the ground running in 2010, set to make even huger waves in the next 12 months.
jozif’s highly rated DJ sets have been showcased heavily across the UK and Europe, including a string of shows at the global institutions that are fabric and We Love…Space in Ibiza, and shows for every promoter worth their salt across every major city in the UK scheduled for the coming months.
He has garnered support from heavyweights such as Craig Richards, Ben Watt, Matt Tolfrey, Andrew Weatherall, Paul Woolford and Ashley Beadle, while his highly distinctive and original productions have been signed to a plethora of respected labels across the scene.
2010 has already seen the acclaimed 'Chicago EP' drop on the New York imprint Wolf + Lamb, as well as a release in conjunction with the much lauded Balance series and the fabric favourite 'Tiger Tiger' finally seeing the light of day. The scene is set for a fiercesome end to the year, with EPs penned for Matt Tolfrey's Leftroom, Agoria's Infine and Paul Woolford's Intimacy. To top this off, jozif's highly conceptual, limited edition collaborative label project with fabric musical director Craig Richards - Fist or Finger - is due for launch imminently; with jozif's early contributions including 'Beats In Space', 'Brick Jane' and 'Room 3', backed with Craig's reinterpretations on the flip.
jozif is set to make an immediate impact on the remix circuit with works scheduled for Island Records, Infine and the smashing remixes of 'It's Time' by Birmingham based Subb-an and Shelton and ‘My Place’ by Death on the Balcony.
2010 is truly the year of jozif....watch this space
