Joey Beltram is widely acknowledged as a leading innovator in the early development of underground dance music. Joey began DJing as a hobby back in 1983 at the age of 13 playing mostly early electro and hip-hop. He made the switch to house music in 1985 when the first wave of Chicago house hit NYC that same year. The impact of records such as "Energy Flash" and "Mentasm" when they were first unleashed in clubs around the world was immense. Beltram's uncompromising attitude to experimentation yielded a slew of ground breaking releases that pioneered the hard house sound, grabbing Europe's clubs by the scruff of the neck and shaking them into submission.
