Joshua vN 2011

With over a decade of experience behind the decks Joshua vN has learned to showcase the different sounds that he loves. Firmly entrenched in House but with an eye on disco, techno and break beats this ever evolving sound is brought together by a constant funk that keeps the dance floor moving.

Following years of residencies on the Calgary circuit, Joshua went on to launch one of Calgary’s essential music companies, Almanova Music. With Joshua at the helm of Almanova Music, his company transcended a variety of mediums, from podcasts, Dj events, to its own clothing line. ANM has brought in Horse Meat Disco, Lady Miss Kier, and Halo Varga as well as doing a number of monthly showcases.

A 3-½ year residency at the legendary Cherry Lounge, one of Calgary’s House music institutions, solidified Joshua’s mark on the local scene. Nationally from coast to coast Joshua has also played in the fabulous cities of Edmonton, Vancouver, Halifax, Moncton and Fredericton. Joshua has opened for Horse Meat Disco, Eddie C, Halo Varga, Fred Everything, Dj Colette, Jazzy Eyewear, Bryan Jones, Hipp-e, and Ben Watt. Lately Joshua has turned his efforts to producing, allowing original productions and edits to make their way into his sets. Joshua is inspired by years of crate digging and constant collaboration with fellow artists, and delivers funky and soulful sets.
