Joe Stone can be seen as the newest entry onto the deep/future house scene, making waves with a full fledged, contemporary though 90s styled house sound. But while the name is new to the scene, the background of this DJ/productional act already speaks volumes, ranging from classical music training to producing timeless house tunes and remixes for some of the biggest names out there.
Joe Stone is the alter ego of Dutch DJ Maurice Oude Booyink, who’s been working as a DJ/producer for years. He starts his musical career at an early age, playing keys at the age of seven, and it doesn’t take him long to create new, original melodies. Growing up on a diet of funk and soul music, he masters these styles in his first band at the age of sixteen, followed by producing his first dance records.
While playing in bands, Maurice releases solo material under his Inmado guise as well as doing productional work for other artists (R3hab, Sharon Doorson a.o.). When he wins a Spinnin’ Records DJ Contest with his version of DVBBS’ single ‘Pyramids’, it immediately draws attention from the world famous label.
