JOE NICE BIO
Joe Nice started playing dubstep in June 2001 with a collective of Baltimore DJs, the 2 Charming Crew. He earned a residency at Sonar Baltimore and was headlining local, regional and national shows shortly thereafter.

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. In July 2011, he co-founded and was named a resident DJ at a new dubstep night in New York City, Reconstrvct.

Joe Nice 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 September 2003, he co- created a monthly internet radio show on GourmetBeats.com. His show was the first to feature dubstep in North America. 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 broadcast.
