Josh G. Abrahams is a musician who emerged from the Australian underground dance-music scene in the early 1990s. He has worked as a writer, performer, music director and producer on albums and film soundtracks, and in television and theatre.

Abrahams has had a highly successful career in the music industry, beginning in 1991 when he formed Future Sound Of Melbourne with drum and bass producer David Carbone and acid house DJ Steve Robbins. They released several 12" singles on the Shock Records imprint, Candyline Records. FSOM released tracks on Belgium’s premier underground dance-music label, Two Thumbs Records, and eventually won the Australian Recording Industry Award (ARIA) for Best Dance Release in 1996. In the same year, Abrahams was signed as a solo artist to Carl Cox’s label, Worldwide Ultimatum, releasing his techno album The Satyricon to wide critical acclaim. The album did not sell well, although one of the tracks on it, "The Joker", appeared on the soundtrack to the film Hackers. In 1997 Abrahams signed to Festival Records in Australia.

Around this time, film director Baz Lurhmann became interested in Abrahams' work and asked him to co-produce some tracks for his album Something For Everybody, one of which became the 1998 UK #1 single, "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)". Abrahams' own solo chart success also continued with the 1999 Australian platinum selling single "Addicted To Bass" and the album Sweet Distorted Holiday, which won two ARIAs, for Best Dance Album and Best Independent Release. In 2001, Abrahams added to his producer credits by producing the platinum selling single "Lovesong" and the gold selling album Audio Out for Australian singer Amiel.

Abrahams continued his creative collaboration with Baz Lurhmann in 2001 when he co-produced the hugely successful Moulin Rouge film soundtrack. In 2002, Abrahams composed and produced original music for a feature film by Paul Currie called One Perfect Day, set in the Melbourne dance music scene. Also in this year, Abrahams remixed songs for John Farnham and Icehouse. In 2003, Abrahams wrote and produced the original music score for the movie One Last Ride, produced by Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee.

Abrahams also has a career in theatre. He was the music director and pianist in The Soubrettes Cabaret Tingel Tangel at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2004.

He began composing music for television commercials, such as the 'Go For It Girl’ campaign for Portmans clothing and the LG technology campaign. In 2005, TV jingles were Abrahams' main focus, along with writing more of his own original music.

Most recently Abrahams has turned his attention to the post modern art of “mash-up”, running the vocals of one well-known song over the bass line of another, creating a seamless and surprising mega-mix covering the history of recorded music. He spent July and August of 2006 running the night-club in the first Spiegeltent to tour in the USA, where audiences from across the country danced to his mashed-up beats.
