Prince Josh announces his debut solo LP entitled ‘The Joy’, with the first taste of the new record in the form of ‘It’s All The Same’.
Speaking about the new single, Josh says: “It's All The Same was the last track recorded for the album. I wanted to make a Chicago house track to play out when I was DJing. The bassline is loosely inspired by Ally Us ‘Follow Me’. This was my first time making a track specially for the dance floor.”

Josh began working on his debut LP 'The Joy'. Combining elements of house, downtempo and global club sounds ‘The Joy’ represents Josh’s vast musical palate while maintaining a singular sonic vision. Steeped in the colours yellow and grey, ‘The Joy’ captures a rare glimpse into the mind of the artist; music for headphones and the club.
Speaking on the album, Josh says: "’The Joy’ was recorded between 2017 and 2019 in Toronto, Canada. Combining elements of house, downtempo and global club sounds ‘The Joy’ represents my vast musical palate while maintaining a singular sonic vision. Originally called ‘939’ and clocking in at just under ten minutes the album started to take on a life of its own when I started digging for samples in the loneliest corners of YouTube. I became fascinated with these characters who were uploading daily videos on their lives to zero views, until I started watching. Vlogs on friendship, depression and love became the voices that brought my tracks to life. These voices allowed me to express myself without ever having to open my mouth. The album also features collaborations with Yves Jarvis, LA timpa, Harrison and Romy (Tasseomancy).”
