Hailing from Dallas, TX., a city that has spawned such house music greats as Brett Johnson, JT Donaldson, Demarkus Lewis, and Lance Desardi, amongst others, 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 personas make them a 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 on myspace. 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, Midwest Hustle, Meltin’ Funk, Seventy Four, Junky Trunk, Footwear, Llama Farm, HuHu, Shak Digital, Serial Sickness, Illuminati, Voluptuous, Cotopaxi, Union, Liberate, & 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 consistently charted by house music’s elite.
In addition to their High Maintenance project both 4peace & J. Caprice have established solo careers and both run labels. 4peace is the owner of Cabbie Hat & J. Caprice runs Home Again Digital Recordings(aka HARD).
