Josh Caffe has spent the last decade on a breathless trip through the fringes of London’s shifting house and techno continuum. As a DJ, vocalist, producer and activist of British-Ugandan descent, Caffe’s influence has been felt everywhere from institutions such as Dalston Superstore and Adonis to his own Love Child party, curated at Fabric, where Caffe holds an influential residency. With his newly released debut album ‘Poppa Zesque’ on Erol Alkan’s label Phantasy, Caffe has made his boldest statement yet. It effortlessly captures Caffe’s vision of queer liberation and sensuality. Caffe’s solo material is charismatic, frenetic and rich in inspiration, from classic Chicago house, UK acid culture, 00s rap and his twin heroes, Prince and Grace Jones.

Having forged an intimate connection with dancers across the sphere of underground house and techno, whether on the dancefloor and on record, on the mic or in the booth, in the grimiest of clubs or owning festival stages, Josh Caffe’s attitude and talent continues to inspire radical freedom.

And new material is on its way, always…
