Joshua Cole has been a DJ on the Manchester scene since 2000 playing at many of the gay scene's top venues and nights including Manto, Glitter & Twisted, Retox, Queer, Essential and Morning Glory. Whilst resident at Essential he played alongside many of the top House jocks including Allister Whitehead, Boy George, K Klass and Graeme Park. More recently Joshua is one of the team behind HomoRetro which successfully launched at the end of 2010 with an incredible performance from Manchester diva Rachel McFarlane.
Originally a classically trained musician, Joshua turned to House music on discovering Flesh and Paradise Factory during his student days back in the Nineties. A producer as well, Joshua's influences are wide and varied but his style leans towards the more soulful and vocal side of House.
