Joe Pea is a professional electronic music DJ and producer who is increasingly sharing his passion and talent for music across the world. An incessant fascination with percussion and rhythm led Joe initially to taking up the drums as a hobby as a child. Upon finishing high school he moved on to pursue his passion playing live music with bands in and around the Western United States. A chance introduction to electronic music in 1999 in Phoenix, AZ by a friend was a transformative moment, and in less than a year Joe had decided to put down the drumsticks, start collecting vinyl and put on the headphones.
Joe’s passion for electronic music has spanned over 18 years and his dedication to the craft has taken him all over North America to events, festivals & gatherings such as WMC, Burning Man, Lightning in A Bottle, Desert Hearts & Oregon Eclipse Festival, just to name a few. Joe’s music collection spans from all many sub-genres of techno & house as well as breaks & drum & bass. Most known for his house & techno sets, he is one of San Diego California’s busiest DJs & has been blessed to share the stage with amazing artists such as Adam Freeland, Christian Martin, Justin Martin, Claude VonStroke, Gene Farris, Richie Hawtin, Nic Fanciulli, Marc Houle, Sunshine Jones, DJ Dan, and countless others. Joe also holds court as resident of one of Southern California’s longest running House Music weekly, Dance Klassique, located at Blonde Bar, in San Diego.
Additionally, other than spending hours in the studio working solo or with local artists on music, you can find him dancing and working at music events and festivals all over the West Coast, as he is a very strong supporter of the concept of music fostering community and the dance floor as a sacred space to come together as one.
