We can’t tell if there is more quality talent today than compared to past decades, or if the internet and emerging communications make it easier to bring this talent to the surface. Either way, there is a surplus of DJs, producers and artists who are killin’ the game right now. Here’s the thing though…very few of the DJs / producers you are hearing on SoundCloud and adding to your Spotify playlists are true triple threats. Specifically, being able to produce, song write and perform. Shit, half of these DJ / producers haven’t ever made an original.
Well 24-year-old Brooklyn based up-and-comer Josh Tobias can do all three, and very well to say the least. He writes / produces his own music and performs the finished product, pairing a vocal setup with a drum pad and firing up loops in realtime. Bringing that type of repertoire is what excites us about Josh, who also teaches music to the mentally disabled.
In our opinion, JT (as we like to call him) has been floating wayy under the radar for the last few months. Well that’s about to change as Josh preps for the release of his debut EP this Fall. In anticipation of the release, the homie dropped off a funky summer anthem titled “Tell Me.” We asked Josh about the significance of the record and he mentioned, “it’s basically me telling a girl to not be so picky and give me a chance to show her I’m the man.”
Girl, get your act together before you miss out!
