After releasing a string of solo singles and mixes, PRINCE JOSH has cultivated an exciting sound combining elements of house, downtempo and global club sounds. His latest single (co-released on Paris’ Kitsune imprint), One Time ft. Orit, mixes electronic elements with Orit’s vocals as an introspective reflexion on relationships.

“Prince Josh’s first single since making his full-length solo debut with The Joy last year. The was named one of Exclaim!’s 25 Canadian Albums You Might Have Missed in 2020″ – EXCLAIM

“One Time’ originally started out as a trip-hop beat sent to me by Montreal based producer CFCF back in 2017. The track sat on my laptop until I rediscovered it this year and decided to sample a small loop towards the end. Once the track started to take shape, I immediately sent it to Toronto based singer Orit, who I’d been talking to over quarantine about working together. After our first session the song quickly started to take shape, and by the last session we knew we’d made something special: a song for before, during and after a night out.” – Prince Josh

“The lyrics were inspired by a turbulent relationship. Oftentimes when the dust of a failed relationship settles we try to outweigh the good with the bad. This song expresses a rejection of the good, ultimately deciding that the entire experience is worth erasing.” – Orit

PRINCE JOSH teams up with LA Timpa and Yves Jarvis on his new single ‘Blood’ streaming now via THE LINE OF BEST FIT SONG OF THE DAY and via CLASH MAGAZINE.

“they are two of my favourite contemporary artists. Yves Jarvis is my cousin and LA Timpa is a very close friend who I met during a crucial part of my life. I wanted to connect the dots between blood relatives and friends and what it means to be a ‘family.'” – Prince Josh

The trio carved an industrial trip-hop sound, whilst the vocals cut between Yves Jarvis’ lethargic drawl and Romy’s yearning falsetto. “What transpired that night is nothing short of a miracle, after editing the song down it was only fitting that I used an answering machine message I’d received from my other cousin Che Topsy (Yves Jarvis’ older brother) as the outro to the song.”

“Close collaborators LA Timpa and Yves Jarvis join proceedings, supplying creative inter-connections to take ‘Blood’ to a fresh space.” – CLASH

‘Blood’ is now available HERE and on all streaming platforms.
‘The Joy’ LP will be released March 6th via Hand Drawn Dracula.

Following on from playful cut ‘Boo!’, ‘The Joy’ is a preview of PRINCE JOSH‘s dynamism and mastery within dance music and its subcultures.
