I made a best of 2018 playlist on Spotify if you’re interested. It’s full of my favorite music that should’ve gotten way more attention than it did. Link is in my story or on twitter, where I highlighted some of my other favorite things about 2018. I hope you’re all having a really wonderful holiday and looking forward to 2019 as much as I am. Sending lots of love out there to everyone 💛
Happy holidays to everyone dreaming of warmer days. About to go into hibernation until I get to tell you all what’s on the way in 2019 #newmusic #newmixtape #biggerboats #livetours 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 . 🤙🏼@jonnyrios
It was raining in LA so I went to Costa Del Sol in the Dominican Republic this weekend to play some tunes on a beach. Thanks @corona 😘
Hard to believe this remix turns 7 this week. So many memories are tied up with this song, from all over the world and across years of space and time and people. I remember playing at Armando Records in Bogota in 2013 with the band and just being blown away by the crowd singing louder than we could play. The thrill of @themagicianclub including it in one of his early Magic Tapes. Countless singalongs in Mexico City, especially at Corona Capital in 2016. . If you’ve been riding with me since this one, thank you! It’s rare to take a musical journey with people for this many years and I feel really blessed to get to have this back and forth with you at all. Or maybe you’re hearing it for the first time today? My story has a link to listen if you wanna give it a spin 💛. . I think remixes still matter, and it’s a real shame this song isn’t available anywhere other than on SoundCloud and YouTube. I’d love to see @nikiandthedove’s label release this one on Apple and Spotify - or at least let me! Comment and tag @nikiandthedove if you think so too!
Guess who’s finishing up new music? 2019 fixing to be a good year 🍾
There’s no place I’d rather close out my High Seas tour for 2018 than Los Angeles. We sold out the entire tour yet again, and I’m so thankful that I get to bring my two passions together in one place. Thank you to every single person who came this year. Now... what can we do next year to go even bigger? . 📷: @macmotions
Last High Seas boat party of 2018 is Saturday in Long Beach CA. Bringing it all home to close it out 😭 . 📷: @jonny.rios
This July I continued my partnership with @theyachtweek in the beautiful country of Montenegro. I lived on a catamaran for 3 weeks, sailed from harbor to harbor playing that liquid disco and exploring one of the hidden gems of the Adriatic. For a sailor who loves to DJ a day party, this is basically a dream come true. . They’ve really done an incredible job curating a truly holistic experience and I have to say this was a trip of a lifetime. From early morning boatside yoga, to wild circle raft parties, running through rosé fueled beachside discos. Of course for me the best part is just living on a boat, throwing the sails up, and exploring a new place, especially one as breathtaking as Montenegro. . Building such a good relationship with @theyachtweek has been one of the more fulfilling pleasures of my entire career and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next! Next year I really hope to announce even earlier and maybe do a Goldroom fan only presale so you guys can get in on the action before anyone else. Sound good? Let me know if you’d be down to come in 2019! . Finally a huge thanks to @paulyloz, @henriquedagostini, @wil_curtis, and the rest of the Yacht Week staff for making me feel like a part of the family. Lastly thanks to @catkoppel for shooting and editing this beautiful recap!
I can’t believe it but West Of The West is two years old! So much has happened in the last 24 months to change my life - it almost feels like a lifetime ago. I’m so proud of the songs on this record. I poured myself into them and agonized over every detail in a way I’d never done. Listening back now I can hear every session and every late night all wrapped into those recordings. So I just wanted to take this chance to thank everyone who’s listened to it, who found me because of it, who’s stuck with me through it, and who’s still down to see what I’m going to do next. I wouldn’t be here without you and I feel incredibly lucky to have fans who are so down to take the journey alongside me. . I suppose that obviously begs the question of “Josh where the fuck is new Goldroom music?!?” 2017 was a weird year, mostly thanks to a broken neck suffered in Mexico in the heat of summer. I’ve been working and changing and taking musical chances that have both invigorated and scared me. I’ve written music that I’m incredibly stoked about and taken steps in like 12 different directions. I can promise that I’ve finished a bunch of music and that you’ll get to start hearing it soon. The new stuff is so exciting to me and I think it really is a true return to me at my core. I’ll never stop writing songs and making music guys. Never stop spreading love 💛

Making music for this.
it’s almost that time
Here’s what happened in New York on Saturday. Nothing compares to 1200 friends on the biggest boat the city can offer. Thank you guys for making my dreams come true every summer. I love New York! . @domcappelletti
