“5.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't have expected anything less from H.R.- Spintacular, 3 Aug 1999 By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com This review is from: Dust Static and Plastic (Audio CD) Dust, Static, and Plastic encompasses not only the 'beats from the streets' attitude that hip hop was founded on, but also goes further into new territory by displaying and redefining the art of the DJ. Josh does not simply 'drop back beats' for his rhymers but in utilizing his eclectic musical background and unmistakable talent for mixing/breaking the beats, he is able to spotlight his lyrical partners while emphasizing the music itself. Hip-Hop often has become completely lyrical with tired, overused beats. Josh brings back the into focus the purpose of the DJ: To be a composer and create music that makes you bob your head and shake your fanny. From the freestyle to masterminded poetics still got it going on. Definetly a five star production.”

“ I have to be honest here, I don’t know a lot about Josh Virgin. I first heard of him in the hype section of Hip Hop Connection, found the album and have loved it ever since. Now I believe that Josh is from Minneapolis and is good friends with Freddie Fresh, the pair have recorded together, Virgin using his Hidden Rhythm alias. Regardless, the “Dust, Static & Plastic” is an excellent album, released in 1999 on the UK label Eye Q. Made up of dark and dusty instrumental tracks, comparable to DJ Vadim, Krush etc, the album also features a number of vocal tracks. I’ve never heard of any of the rappers included on the album, The Phantom Scribbler, Brown Mug, Ray Boogie, and Cool Tra Sebek, but all do a perfect job, giving it a slightly early Wu-Tang sound and feel. It’s a shame that Josh Virgin didn’t get more credit and success for this album as its an excellent example of late 90s leftield hip hop and beats. Check it out for yourself!”

“Hey really good music!!! I'm about to listen to your number 1song for the third time now. I respect the original style. Stay on it.”
