Josh McClintock – Acid Junky Vol. #1




Josh McClintock (“Curious Josh”, “Joshua”, “Josh from NY”) started DJing in the summer of 1991 and was heavily influenced by Doc Martin, Jeno, and Barry Weaver. Known mostly these days for his acid house and oldschool house sets. This is the first in a series of three mixtapes that got him gigs at Unlock the House, Sketchpad, Metropolis, Groove Radio, and various other parties in Los Angeles and San Diego in the early nineties.

Acid Junky Vol. #1 was recorded in 1993, after Middle Earth had just ended. It was recorded in Newport Beach at Josh’s parents house, where many a crazy party was held, with good friends sharing a love for this music.

  4. Holllly crap. Its DJ Curious Josh. WOW. What a master. Glad I was able to witness the sipinning first hand back in the day. There is nothing like the 92/93 scene Josh intro’d me to.

  5. Yo Christian! Hit me up on Facebook dude! I wanna DJ in St. Louis again…lol.

  6. Josh, awesome tapes. I haven’t heard so many classics in one place in a long time! I forgot about most of these until listening to this.

  7. Hey Josh,
    It’s been a few years since 1988! That was the year my world became flooded with dance records and Mixmag’s weekly magazines. I used to drive to Melrose from the valley during my lunch our just for a chance to hunt vinyl for 10 minutes! Thanks for these mixes, your years of serving us music for our souls, for being active on this site, and for all of the memories these classic mixes bring.
    Cheers M8!

  8. On it!
    It’s true! I spent many an hour trying to find parking on those tight ass streets! I just drove through there the other week with some visitors from out of town and man, what an odd sense of sadness seeing none of my old haunts there anymore.
    No worries though, we’ve got more horizons to conquer!
