Joshua Iz is a dj, producer, designer and writer based in Chicago. Although known and respected worldwide in the house music community, Joshua listens to, produces and djs a wide range of music: from house, disco, hip-hop, jazz, funk, and rock, to brazilian, dub, techno and everything in between. He has been djing for 24 years and has over 200 production credits to his name for well respected labels including Prescription, Balance, Classic, Junior Boys Own, OM and
Guidance, Sony, and Six Degrees. Joshua's music has been played and charted by Giles Peterson, Mark Farina, François K, Derrick Carter, King Britt and Jason Bentley to name a few. Recording under many pseudonyms including: Joshua, Circulation, J-Boom, C++, Free Energy, Stereo People, Dubwise and as Iz of Iz & Diz, his music and djing have brought him around the world, with residencies at Fabric (London), Bionic (San Francisco) and regular gigs all over the US, Canada, Europe and the far east. Joshua runs his own label Vizual Records which launched in 2009 and his debut album 'It Iz What It Iz' was released in early 2011 to widespread critical acclaim.

With well over 200 releases bearing his name, Joshua’s production and remix work is respected and in demand worldwide. Operating under many guises, including Stereo People, Free Energy, C++, Dubwise, and J-Boom, Joshua has drawn on his many musical influences to create a sound all his own, yet never formulaic. Recently he has recorded projects and remixes for labels such as Columbia/Sony, Junior Boys Own, Ubiquity, OM, Classic, Developed, Nightshift, Seasons and NRK as well as original material for his own Vizual Records imprint. Check out Joshua’s extensive discography here:

As Iz & Diz, Joshua and Diz have developed their own signature sound and playing style. Their studio sessions canonly be described as magic, culminating in the release of seminal cuts like “Mouth” (Classic) and “Magnificent” (OM), as well as the recently released “Juventated” on Vizual Records. While djing, the duo complement each other perfectly, with each adding their own flavor to the mix.

Joshua’s dj philosophy is simple: play amazing music and make people dance. And he does this in a unique way - mixing house, techno, dub and disco to create a perfect blend of the organic and electronic that always rocks the party.
