Lean Forward is proud to present, the one and only
JOE NICE (Dubwar, Gourmet Beats, Baltimore US)
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. Joe's monthly radio show on GourmetBeats.com was the first to feature dubstep in the states and his worldwide fan base continues to grow with his enthusiastic stage presence & live performance, upfront selection and skillful mixing. Joe's record bag is a who's who of dubstep... if you've never heard it before, chances are, you'll hear it from Joe Nice. 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. A member of GourmetBeats, resident & co-founder of the most successful dubstep party in North America, DubWar (New York City) and selected as one of URB's NEXT 100 (in 2007), JoeNice is continually taking dubstep to the next level and beyond.
