Josh Cheon grew up in suburban New Jersey, 15 minutes outside of New York City where he spent his weekends dancing at goth club The Bank and digging for records. He held internships at Metropolis Records, Beggars Banquet/4AD, Matador and DFA before moving to San Francisco in 2006. Josh was a member of queer DJ collective Honey Soundsystem from 2007 to 2017. His love of underground 80s music pushed him to start Dark Entries in 2009, a record label specializing in reissuing lost music from that time as well as contemporary bands referencing those analog sounds.

Dark Entries was born in the spring of 2009 to release out of print and unreleased underground music as well as contemporary bands. A project of Josh Cheon, a vinyl-focused DJ and collector, Dark Entries takes great care in preserving sound quality and respecting the aesthetics of its artists. All of their releases are a carry over from the DIY days of the 1980s independent record labels. Dark Entries entrusts all of their projects with the best engineer in the state, George Horn at Fantasy Studios, who has remasters each release using his 50+ years of knowledge in the industry.
