Dubstep is his sound and there have been many firsts for Joe along the way, such as:

2. The first American-based dj to play on RinseFM.
3. The first American-based dj to play the legendary DMZ bi-monthly bash.
4. The first American-based dj to play FWD>> @ Plastic People.
Nice is universally recognized as the ambassador of the dubstep sound in North America and one of the purveyors of the sound worldwide with his upfront selection and skillful mixing.
He is also a member of GourmetBeats and a resident at a monthly dubstep party in New York City called DubWar. In 2007, JoeNice was recognized as one of URB's NEXT 100.
With an ever-growing fan base and dj schedule, JoeNice is ready to take dubstep to the next level. Be ready.

Riding high on the success of his remix of Flying Lotus' Parisian Goldfish last year, 2010 sees the highly anticipated release of Take's full-length album, Only Mountain, on the highly acclaimed label Alpha Pup Records on. High in psychedelic pulp and littered with gritty layers of electronic emotion, the new endeavor has been described as "a roiling pot of old school IDM, '90s R&B percussive elements, dubstep bass-derived doom, and ethereal melodies" by Chris Martins of the LA Weekly.
Take has been championed on various influential radio programs by the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B, Giles Peterson, Carlos Nino, and Garth Trinidad. He has performed at the some of the most highly regarded club nights and festivals around the world such as Low End Theory, Sonar Music Festival and The Loud Minority amongst others. Take has also shared the stage with the likes of Flying Lotus, Ras G, Glitch Mob, SamIYam, Nosaj Thing, Kode 9, Busdriver, Mos Def, Prefuse 73, Mike Slott, Hudson Mohawke and more.
