Jozef K began his career DJing at Sankeys Manchester aged 19 before becoming an official resident at 20. He subsequently went on to tour the world, with shows in New York, Beijing, Moscow, and the rest of Europe.
As a producer, he has received DJ support from several key artists, including Laurent Garnier and Kim Ann Foxman. The latter even released Jozef’s track "Tribal Rhythm" on her NYC-based label Firehouse. With production partner Winter Son, too, Jozef has released on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth and San Francisco-based Acid Test; and as a solo artist he has remixed Bicep and released on Brazilian label Upfront Sounds.
Today, however, he shares a rework of DJ Shadow's "Blood on the Motorway," which is available to download below. This is what he had to say:
"It has been a mad few months. My girlfriend broke up with me and evicted me out of the house; it felt like I had to start again in many respects.
"A positive I took from the experience is that it reminded me that no matter what, music will always be there. Since then I have locked myself away in the studio, finishing a solo album and more. I have had some amazing feedback from people I truly respect, which is pretty surreal.
"This is a pre-cursor of the stuff I've been making. It is not expressly club music, but it is straight from the heart. As a lifelong fan of DJ Shadow, I have envisioned this re-work of one of his melancholic classics for many years."
