Josh began producing happy hardcore in his bedroom in Portsmouth around 2000, yet his big break came from his infamous video remix of the television commercial for Cillit Bang featuring fictional character [a=Barry Scott], which was signed and released by [l=Nukleuz] Records at the beginning of 2007. "[r=807185]" had mixed repercussions. Whilst catapulting Josh's artist name fully into the limelight, it also took some time for people to look past the novelty of his debut major release and acknowledge him as a serious musician and producer.

Outside of UK hardcore, Josh's interest in the Japanese "J-Core" scene has led him to make notable appearances on underground hardcore and doujin releases in Japan under the Joshka moniker, as well as collaborating with producers [a=Buzzmasta], [a=M-Project] and [a=DJ Shimamura], and engineering for J-pop bootlegger [a=M-Neko].

Since the summer of 2007, JAKAZiD has been working as an in-house engineer for Nukleuz Records and has recently engineered a bulk of the recent tracks and remixes from [a=HNK], [a=King Ace], [a=Nukleuz Kollective], [a=Filthy Louca], [a=Love Assassins] and [a=Chris MiMo Jones].
