Tastemaker, purist, digger, fix-it man, people's choice, spirit guide, & dad-in-a-childless body have all been words to describe Peter Croce, the Detroit-bred deejay and producer. A true personality deejay, Peter's musical mind focuses more on soul and spirit than genres and rules, putting him straight in heart of the next generation of deeply rooted American selectors and label bosses.
His debut release "Revival" quickly sold out worldwide, earning organic support from Mr. Scruff, Soul Clap, Jamie 3:26, Ben Westbeech, and more; and continues to be heard on dance floors around the world. He's also a jazz-trained bassist and prolific re-editor (usually under his Mr. PC alias), artfully tailoring classics and future gems for his dance floors. In addition to his own imprint his releases can be found on Razor-N-Tape, Soundway, and On The Corner.
Aggressively DIY, Peter presses all of Rocksteady Disco's releases on Detroit's east side, stamping and shipping each record himself. In addition to pushing the Rocksteady Disco sound, he does A&R for MotorCity Wine Recordings, the label of Detroit's most beloved soulful venues.
Peter maintains a busy gig schedule between residencies in Detroit and Chicago, as well as appearances in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., London, Paris, Seoul, and more.

"Rocksteady Disco is releasing some of the best and most important records in the scene today. The young imprint which was established only five years ago has the feel of a label that has been around for generations. In a throwaway, on-demand, insta-satisfaction society, researching and respecting dance music’s history while implementing the ideals which led to its present state means taking the longer, more arduous road. But driven by a motivation to share its messages and to create lasting connections that stand the test of time, Rocksteady Disco’s journey has just begun." -5 Magazine
"Over the last few years, Peter Croce AKA Mr PC has delivered some of the finest re-edits around." -Juno
"Peter likes to get worldly, digging deep into bossa nova, African funk, afro beat, obscure house music, and deep disco cuts that’ll be most familiar to folks who listen guys like Gilles Peterson or Theo Parrish." -The Public
"Soul cannot be manufactured, it must be conjured from the clash between darkness and light. It's hard to use words to describe what it feels like to hear it, but you know damn well when do. In this manner, Peter Croce's 'Revival' is simply dripping in spirit." -Magnetic Mag
