Picture the scene…
December 1994, the day after his 9th birthday. There’s a boombox at his feet, antenna stretched to the sky, blank cassette tapes to his left, radio dial tuned in. The intro of his favorite song begins playing as he hits the record button on his most cherished birthday gift.
That day, unbeknownst to him, a DJ was born.
B Kühl (Josh Kuhl) hails from just north of Chicago, the birthplace of house music, so it’s no surprise that his heart beats at 128 bpm. He’s been at this thing, sharing his love of music with people, for 13 years. In the 90s, the likes of Fatboy Slim, Daft Punk, Roni Size, and Kraftwerk graced his headphones. In recent years, he’s drawn inspiration from artists like the late DJ AM, Girl Talk, 2manydjs, A-Trak, and Armand Van Helden.
He currently holds three residencies in clubs spanning the western hemisphere. What started with a boombox and blank tapes has now led to CDJs and a booming sound system.
