Peter Croce is part of the next generation of selectors carrying forth the melting pot of sounds that make up Detroit and Chicago’s diverse deejay and soundsystem culture. His sets combine an eclectic and didactic blend of Disco, Deep House, Afrobeat, and Broken Beat dubplates and classics to affirm the souls of those fortunate enough to be in the discotheque. Emerging from the Detroit underground organically Peter stands firmly rooted in the old school, while having dustier fingers than your standard reissue deejay. A true selector, you’ll generally find Mr. PC armed with bags of wax and USBs full of unreleased tracks to bring moods and sounds to elevate the discotheque.
Peter owns and operates Rocksteady Disco, a label that he describes as being “the vehicle for the next generation to carry forward the great musical gift of Deep House and Disco in Detroit and Chicago.” He has founded Mr. PC Versions to re-envision a curious blend of tracks for DJ use; and along with Lafleur he has recently launched MotorCity Wine Recordings. He has also released on In Any Case (Lyon) and On The Corner (UK), with a forthcoming release Razor-N-Tape (US). His releases enjoy support from world-class deejays including Mr. Scruff, Jimpster, Zernell, Waajeed, Shigeto, Cervo, Aroop Roy, LadyMonix, Kai Alcé, Soul Clap, Hugo LX, Sol Power All-Stars, and more.
