Songfacts®:

  • Guru Josh is keyboardist Paul Walden, who in the late 1980s was a nightclub entertainer in Jersey. In 1989 he released the acid house track "Infinity," which peaked at #5 in the UK and was also a hit across Europe. Josh fell out with the music press and only achieved one more UK Top 40 hit ("Whose Law (Is It Anyway?)" #26), though he had more success on the continent. In 1991 the rave maestro moved into multimedia production and it appeared that his hit-making career was finished. However to the surprise of many a year after signing a new record contract under the name of Guru Josh Project, a re-mixed version of "Infinity" by DJ Klaas with new lyrics and a 21st century beat, returned the keyboardist to the UK Top 10.
  • Paul Walden also made 3D glass art under the name Louie Fabrix. His work has been displayed in Berlin, Madrid, Paris and New York.
