Already she has had some great guests on the show including Phil Chessman of Essence Records and Stictly Rythm, Hatty Lovehearts from Tokyo Disco and Ibi from The Beguinerz. One guest who featured on the show in 2006 was Jozif resident from Jaded and Wrong and also very talented producer. This show got such a great response and Blush enjoyed the banter with Jozif so much that she decided to ask if he would like to join her a co host the show once a month, of course he agreed.
Jozif is the new monthly addition to the Saturday Shakedown and has been playing records since he was 17, after a memorable dance floor moment on New Years eve 1997 with his hero Tony De Vit. After getting the bug (and his first set of DLP 1's) he begged a warm slot off his brothers best mate who ran a techno night in the back of a pub! From there Jozif matured into the slick, energetic and creative DJ he is today.
JOZIF's experience runs from the north of England, through to Wales and his birth place, London. He has held residencies at some the most resepcted clubs in country, Miss Monneyponnies, Scream, The Escape & Naughty but Nice to name a few.After winning the Coca Cola DJ of the year in Bristol, JOZIF was accepted onto the Galaxy Radio accademy - which he graduated from the same year and was then enrolled as one of the team.After a short stint at the station JOZIF moved back to London where he quickly set up SpecailNeedz, a dirty sunday afternoon shindig in Shoreditch.
It was here he met Raymundo Rodriguez, a former Push FM host, Ray was so impressed with JOZIF's talent the he immediately invited JOZIF to guest at his new venure WRONG. After that very same slot JOZIF was made full resident by Raymundo and has been with them ever since. Now in its second year WRONG trail blazed its way out of the Kings Cross boozer it held court to one the most revered clubs in London. Herbal.Weekly, the club is full, with guests ranging from Frerange records boss JImpster to 2020 vision man Tristan Da Cunha, not to mention OM records top man Chuck Love and all round genius nice guy Mike Monday - all the while with JOZIF and Raymundo at the helm.
Jaded, a clubbing institution - another of JOZIF's residencies. It is here monthly he gets to strut his stuff in front of one of the most demanding audinces in Lonodn. Jaded still is THE PLACE TO BE afterhours in London attracting 1000's of clubbers every-week.
Having worked on RPM magazine since its conception last year JOZIF has exposure to almost very media medium and has just completed the inception of JUSTPORK.JUSTPORK is JOZIF's new stable and will be a label specializing in local, new breed talent, digital shop and a brand synanmous with the dance-floor!
Having just completed a remix for Mike Monday's ground breaking Smorgasboard album and writing the music for Malibu's new advetising campaign, coupled with some of the most crowd pleasing bootlegs (PorkSex, JustporkedRodaal, JustporkedHell) and his new night with partner in crime James Jackson (Fresh @54), its fair to say all sides of his career are right on track.
In his words ........... 'Can we rave now????'
