High Maintenance biography
Hailing from Dallas, TX., a city that has spawned such house music greats as Brett
Johnson, JT Donaldson, Demarkus Lewis, and Lance Desardi, the producing tandem of
J. Caprice & 4peace, otherwise known as HIGH MAINTENANCE, are the next big thing
out of Big D! In a city full of, and respected for it's deep house & minimal DJ's, High
Maintenance has been makin' their presence felt with their signature funky, dirty,
jackin' underground style of house music. Their high energy tag team sets are setting
dance floors across the world on fire while their infectious clownin', lighthearted
persona's make them a definite crowd favorite.
Both have been accomplished DJ's for quite some time (4peace since '89 and J.
Caprice since '96), but it wasn't until Feb. 2008 that things started taking off on the
producing front when the two met through a chance encounter. Needless to say, it was
a match made in heaven and like two long lost brothers, J. Caprice & 4peace
immediately clicked and started working on tracks together under the guise of High
Maintenance. The house music community instantly took notice and the pair have been
getting tracks signed at a torrid pace to such respected labels as Digi Funk, Dustpan,
Groove Baby, Midwest Hustle, Meltin' Funk, Junky Trunk, Footwear, Bid Muzik, Llama
Farm, HuHu, Shak Street, Serial Sickness, Illuminati, Voluptuous, & 3345, as well as
their own label JUICED MUSIC, which has firmly established itself as a powerhouse in
the worldwide house community. Their tracks have been charted by the likes of Mes,
Smokingroove, JR From Dallas, Sonny Fodera, Combined, Tommy Largo and more,
and have sold their way onto various record store top 100 lists.
With no signs of slowing down and a sound that continues to improve and mature with
each release, the future looks very bright for these Texas boys!
