Biography

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.


Many will also recall Maurice’s prominent role as one of the members of Chicago’s worldwide famed triumphant trio, I.D. Productions. Along with Steve “Silk” Hurley and Eric “E-Smoove” Miller, Maurice completed the trinity that helped to redefine what a “remix” was. Instead of just extending the length of the song, the track was completely reworked, reproduced and given a whole new form ready to take clubland by storm.

    I love the remixes he produces for Destiny's Child, kelly Rowland, Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and other artists like Mary j. Blige, Mariah, Shakira... Some are so much better than the original versions!
