Body Language, our free, monthly dance party, the second Saturday of every month turns 2 years old this month! Resident DJ Lower Frequency, birthday boy Aaron Beckett, and special guest Josh Mace, spin a mix of cutting-edge techno, electro, house, and more.
Low sub-bass, UK influenced breaks, and stomping house beats provoke involuntary bodily movements when artist Josh Mace puts down a track. Within close proximity to Chicago, Detroit, and New York, native of Akron, OH DJ/Producer Josh Mace has grown up in the middle of an electronic music mecca. Exposed at an early age to electronic sounds in a middle school music-tech class, Mace was then introduced to a world of sound possibilities. Soon after, Mace found himself exploring and interweaving connection within electronic music, particularly favoring the expression that house and techno provided for him with a strong influence coming from bass music in Bristol.
Breaking out as an independent artist in 2012 is where it started for Mace. His single ‘Call Me’ was featured on Parisian label B.YRSLF Division. Josh continued his journey self-releasing singles & mixtapes while gaining support from local heavy hitters Brent Still Life & Thunder St. Clair. Acquiring residencies at infamous Cleveland parties Based & Submerged provided an outlet to share bills with global and national talent including acts like Distal, Clicks & Whistles, Jason Burns, Jim-E Stack, Vin Sol, Benito, Jaw Jam, A-Sides, Coyote Clean Up, Freeze-Tag, Prism, Golf Clap, and many more. After relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area, Josh Mace became a regular fixture at the renowned club Monarch with the Soundpieces weekly event.
Inspired by his stay in California, Josh returned to Ohio and landed notable releases and press in 2014 with ‘Without A Gimmick’ on Washington, DC label Car Crash Set, and ‘Time in Yuba’ in 2015 on the Barcelona based Tracy Recordings label. Josh has set his place in the electronic music community having appeared on various established labels in the US and Europe. While continuing to further his passion with music Josh and his friend Jeff Everett launched Sequel Sound recordings, providing a platform for artists in the Midwest and Bay Area to build their catalogues and careers. Josh Mace’s excess of inspirations fuel his endless creative endeavors which are sure to be anticipated and enjoyed for years to come.
