Mister Joshua P. Ferguson
Mister Joshua likes to look at music as a spectrum. With innumerable colors spreading across a rainbow of possibilities, his exploits in music have always been multifaceted. No one style of music paints the picture of Mister Joshua’s tastes adequately and thus his appetite for quality sounds has taken him across genres, scenes, parties and people. With careful thought to the needs of a party’s patrons and a bar’s theme, Joshua continues to tastefully navigate his way through Chicago’s discerning dance music scene. Past and present residencies include Bar Deville, Beauty Bar, Empire Liquors, Hub 51, the Mid, Paris Club, RPM, Scarlet Bar, Sonotheque, Smart Bar and Spy Bar.
What started humbly in college radio has transformed into a full time obsession that extends to radio, journalism, blogging and deejaying. Over the years, Joshua has developed a passionate focus on underground dance styles like house, techno, dubstep, indie dance, disco, soul, Balearic and whatever other adjectives have been ascribed to the current tangents in forward thinking and deep club and lounge sounds. Through his Dialogue Incorporated website and podcast, his work with Abstract Science on WLUW 88.7fm and his endeavors with Time Out Chicago and XLR8R magazines—as well as his regular live appearances—he continues to push the envelope of the cool and the cutting edge.
