Wellington, New Zealand
Growing up in Whakatane and moving to Wellington in the late-90s saw Josh Twaddle surrounded by the Capital’s roots sound. From Trinity Roots, Fat Freddy’s Drop and Kora to the legendary Roots Foundation sessions, all of these sounds have heavily influenced his musical taste ever since. After a short stint in London, Josh linked up with the NiceUp crew on his return to Wellington. While early-80s digital reggae and dancehall is a focus, Josh also enjoys hearing contemporary producers who have been influenced by this era and reinterpret the style. With a background in design and documentary making, Josh is helping connect New Zealand reggae culture to the world.
