Grammy Award Winner Maurice Joshua is known across the globe as a brilliant Producer,Remixer and DJ. In the years since he first burst upon the club scene in 1988 with the now classic anthem “This Is Acid”, Maurice has earned an extremely high degree of respect from his contemporaries. In fact, in the grand scheme of house music, he is revered as one of the world’s best Producer/Remixer/DJs, as well as one of the original architects of the sound that now dominates dance floors all over the world.
With such experience and talent, it’s no wonder that Maurice won a Grammy Award for his remix of Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love” in 2004. Early in his career, “This is Acid” became the catalyst for the chemical reaction that brought Maurice onto the global scene. The single reached #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Play Chart, as well as the Dance Sales Chart. In addition to its U.S. chart success, “This is Acid”, (which was originally released on the Chicago independent label Trax Records) became the milestone for house music. The record was later licensed and released by Vendetta/A&M Records, setting the airwaves of Europe ablaze and earmarking a universally strong beginning to his career.
His hit-making flavor soon enabled Maurice to go solo. He then reached greater career heights as the proprietor of Vibe Music & Music Plant (a company with which he is no longer affiliated). During this time, he produced several massive club anthems such as the #1 Billboard hit “For the Love of You” by Meechie. He also produced some of Kiss FM London’s favorite tunes: “House 101”, “House 102”, “Got a Hold On U” by Chantay Savage, “Good Love, Real Love” by D’Bora, “Just Can’t Get Enough” by Mixx Vibes, and “La La” by Maurice Joshua featuring Liquid Soul to name but a few. For Maurice, timeless hits like these prove that is consistently ahead of his time by producing massive tunes that set the standard for today’s dominating dance genres. These tracks also allow him to constantly expose clubs to his seamless mixing skills—a talent that fills dance floor after dance floor.
With his numerous DJ performances throughout the world, Maurice has “been there and done that” long before many other DJs have. Whether being played in famous clubs like Ministry of Sound (London), Cream (Liverpool), Sound Factory (NYC), Cocorico (Rimini), and MZA (Tokyo), or at dance festivals and music conferences, Maurice has gained worldwide respect as being one of the world’s top DJs. His sets are more than outstanding: he knows what to mix and when to mix it, reaching his fans’ inner hearts and souls. If you are looking for soulful odysseys, disco filtered dubs, Afro Cuban rhythms, Middle Eastern percussion or even classic disco, hip-hop and reggae, Maurice’s sets are definitely the ones that will lead the way to your “entranced” club journeys.
