"For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It's always our self we find in the sea."
Story Time: I was in a collaboration, J360, from 2003 till about 2013. I had always wanted a band. Dreams come true yall. Jon found me while I was seeking out anyone who understood my message.
Back in the day, about 2000-2001, JW began looking for individuals well versed in Dance Music Culture: Producers or DJs or anyone who had their finger on the pulse of this underground movement. He found Jon Ford one hazy night in Boystown Chicago. Jon aka Photosphere, spun Atmospheric Jungle. A style born in the Uk.
Several months after their initial meeting-- They had created J360.
J360 is the brainchild collaboration between two artist, Joshua Wills and Jon Ford. This dynamic duo first met at Columbia College in Chicago where they both studied art. What began as a collaboration for a class became a full on live PA, DJ, production team-- a bona fide collaboration.
As J360, the duo brought listeners a smorgasbord of sonic beats and melodies, ranging anywhere from post apocalyptic soundscapes to rosy resolutions through musical synthesis and production via remix, sound design, and noise. Both producers spun their own sound while merging hope and sparking a deep musical understanding for the conversation.
J360 collaboration is currently disbanded on an indirect, indefinite hiatus.
