Joe Nice is known the world over not just as one of the most genuine artists in the scene but also one of the most talented and dubplate filled DJs on the circuit. Representing Baltimore, Joe Nice is universally recognized as the ambassador of the dubstep sound in North America and has been instrumental in the growth and success of dubstep for nearly a decade. In other words, he’s been playing dubstep before it was called dubstep. He is North America's first and most respected dubstep DJ.
Joe started playing dubstep in June 2001 with a collective of Baltimore dj's, the 2 Charming Crew. Nice earned a residency at Sonar Baltimore and was headlining local, regional and national shows shortly thereafter. In September 2003, Joe Nice co-created a monthly internet radio show on GourmetBeats.com. His show was the first to feature dubstep in North America. In June 2005, while gigging and doing internet radio, Nice co-founded and was a resident DJ at the first dubstep night in North America, DubwarNYC.
He is the first American-based DJ to play on London pirate radio, Rinse FM, the first American-based DJ to play the legendary DMZ bi-monthly bash and the first American-based DJ to play FWD>> @ Plastic People. In 2007, he was proudly selected as one of URB magazine's NEXT 100. In July 2011, Nice co-founded and was named a resident DJ at a new dubstep night in New York City, Reconstrvct. In May 2012, Joe transitioned his monthly radio show from Gourmetbeats.com to the award-winning SubFM, where his GourmetBeats radio show can be heard on the second Tuesday of each month, 7pm - 9pm EST. In September 2013, GourmetBeats Radio celebrated 10 years of broadcasts.
Since 2001, Joe Nice has performed and toured extensively across the globe and his worldwide fan base continues to grow with his enthusiastic live performance and stage presence, upfront selection and skillful mixing. His bag of 10" dubplates is a who's who of dubstep. If you've never heard it before, chances are you'll hear it from Joe Nice.
