What is Josh’s Life Like?
24 from the Bay Area. I had always loved music but never thought I would get into the music industry as a profession. I had listened to all kinds of music growing up from Blink-182 to Zeds Dead to Rebelution. I had never experienced a real festival/EDM show till my freshman college summer in 2013 when I attended Paradiso in Washington. After that, I knew I needed to do something in the music industry. After being denied by Red Light Management for an internship my senior year, I took it as a sign to produce full time. Fun facts: I was a D1 collegiate athlete that rowed for 4 years at Oregon State University. I only like eating things with big forks and small spoons. I am the first person in my family to pursue music as a profession and had no musical experience till I started producing.

What’s the story of Josh & Rob as a dynamic duo?
We have known each other since around 7th grade when we started going to the same middle school together. As we got older, we became better friends and had a tight knit group of friends that we are still close with today. We never thought about making music together until around 2015. When we both graduated college, we started to build a studio in downtown Campbell. A year later, we had our full professional studio set up and we have been focusing on making music full time. The two of us enjoy a wide variety of music, but we have a lot of overlap between each other.
