Josh Dubman, AKA DJ Fire Aux, is originally from a small town in the Midwestern United States. As a young’n growing up in the middle of Wisconsin, fire aux inexplicably developed an intense obsession with rap music that developed into a lifelong commitment to studying the culture of hip hop. After leaving his hometown, he cut his teeth DJing in the underground DIY scene in Chicago. He's rocked many parties and venues around Chicago and some of his highlights would include spinning at East Room (Chicago Reader's best hip hop club of 2017), The Charleston, Estate, Crocodile, Reggie’s, Voyager 2016/17 NYE and the West X Sub Chroma Pop Up Party.
With a penchant for travel and a high level of curiosity, Josh left Chicago and ended up in Hong Kong in late 2017 and eventually became the resident DJ for event production company Mama Told Me. He has also become the in-house DJ for the Hong Kong hip hop act, Xabitat, and has recently traveled to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with them for a performance. His aforementioned love of travel and learning about new cultures, coupled with being a genuine hip hop head learning to DJ in one of contemporary rap’s biggest hotbeds of talent (Chicago) are two major factors in his musical selection. Considering these two key inspirations, Josh’s style is an eclectic blend of modern rap music and international dance music, particularly Latin American, Caribbean and West African influenced dance music.
He has also recently started to record a monthly mix for an online radio station in Hong Kong and opened up for an A$AP Mob show. Later in the month he will be spinning at a Halloween music festival in Bali, Indonesia. Check out his SoundCloud page here and his mixes below.
