Josh Abrahams began his electronic music career as a techno producer in Melbourne, Australia around the early 90s as part of the group Future Sound Of Melbourne, signing to Carl Coxs label at the time Worldwide Ultimatum Records. Towards the end of the millennium Josh became a huge fan of the big beat sound and began experimenting with different tempos of breakbeat. A chance meeting with vocalist Amiel Daemion and the anthem “Addicted To Bass” was penned.

In NZ in 1999 the track became a commercial hit and in Australia it was nominated for 5 ARIA awards winning 2 for "Best Independent Release" and "Best Dance Artist Album". It was released to the rest of the world in 2001 under the name of Puretone where it debuted at Number 2 in the pop singles chart and cemented it’s place in dance music history.

I hunted down Josh for an extended chat about the early days and the creation and success of "Addicted To Bass".
