Joshua Brennan may only be 17 years old, but he has garnered the attention of millions under his Oshi moniker and is this week’s Radar artist on Billboard Dance.
The London teen has built a reputation for his unorthodox compositions, fusing genres and eluding music theory guidelines.
To jumpstart 2016, he transformed Kali Uchis’ reggae single “Ridin Round” into a viral melting pot of timbres that caught the attention of pop star Lorde.

Other notable artists to support Brennan’s works include Goldlink, Mija and Tokimonsta. He is currently working on his debut EP, a thing by oshi, and collaborating with R&B singer Omarion on a separate project.
Outside of the studio, Oshi will be making his U.S. performance debut at SXSW on March 18.
