Scouted by Select whilst studying for his Art degree at the age of 19, Josh has since enjoyed a career that’s spanned Fashion, Arts and his main love, Music.
His modelling career has seen him work with some of the world’s biggest designers including Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Calvin Klein and feature in editorials for magazines such as GQ, Vogue and Esquire. Multi-talented, Josh is equally as comfortable on the other side of the camera, working as a freelance videographer and editor, particularly adept at making his subjects feel at ease and always bringing entertainment value to his projects.
But the real passion in Josh’s career has always lay in Music. A DJ, MC and Producer whose unique style has taken him to perform all over the world, Josh is a regular on the UK and European Festival circuit having appeared at Festivals including Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival and We Are FSTVL. Having been the MC and hype man under a different alias JDP, for other high profile DJ's. Josh has proven that he knows how to work a crowd. His sets are one of very few that can combine DJ’ing and MC’ing all whilst he is dropping his own productions.
Never one to miss a party, Josh has combined the worlds of Arts and Music over the years and held residency's for various club nights and venues of all types. As well as playing for the Fashion set regularly at Private member’s clubs including The Box, Annabels and The Groucho Club.
In 2017 Josh turned his hand to radio and has secured a slot on London's longest running house music station Select FM where you can catch him every Friday 12-2pm.
Josh has been releasing music since 2016 when his hotly tipped summer tune ‘No More’ was released under the Ministry of Sound Label, gathering combined plays of over 6 Million. Since then, his subsequent releases have gained him a loyal following on Spotify, Soundcloud and Apple Music and featured on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss FM and Capital FM as well as riding high in the Shazam charts.
His first release of 2019 'Alternate' was also the most ID'd track of 2018 on the "Underground Shazam" facebook group - Identification Of Music.
2019 is already looking set to be a big one for Josh and we’re proud to announce that as well as festival slots already confirmed for We Are and Miami Music Month, he also has multiple new track releases due out in the next few months including his latest track 'Alternate' which debuted on the Pete Tong Radio 1 show at beginning of Feb.
A talent to be watched, Josh Parkinson’s creative flow is in full swing for 2019 and we look forward to watching his star fly high this year.
