As he grew up in an international family and lived abroad he likes to interact with people from different cultures and backgrounds. He aims to touch hearts with his melodic house music, uniting people and inspiring them to follow their own personal goals.

Oliver Heldens, Fedde Le Grand and Martin Garrix quickly picked it up, showing their support by playing the singles globally, in their radio shows. 
 Tiesto also took the youngster under his wing allowing him to release his first debut EP “Desolate” on Tiesto’s imprint AFTR:HRS, receiving massive support from artists such as Nicky Romero & Hardwell. In 2020 Josh released a number of tracks under Martin Garrix’s label STMPD e.g Too Close for Comfort”, “Trust” and “Cray”. “Too close for Comfort” was massively supported by Martin Garrix which lead to a label signing at STMPD RCRDS.
