Ambitious and always thirsty for adventure, he decided to expand his career horizons and travel to Germany in autumn of 2000, to the most modern and exiting European city of Berlin and hopefully bringing his dream of placing Malta on the musical map just one little step further.
Naturally, with his move to Berlin, his sound has also moved on too, from the trance of the late 90’s, to more contemporary sound of Wet & Hard. In fact, Joseph has become one of the pioneers of Wet & Hard, the exiting new 21st century sound presented to a new generation of clubbers, which is slowly taking over the dance floors all over Europe.
This sound has also enabled Joseph to gain rapid recognition and success as a DJ and artist throughout Europe and meanwhile his booking schedule reads like a road map. He has not only concentrated on the countries of the Western Europe either. He has been especially attracted to the countries of Eastern Europe who have embraced Joseph and his sound and he has performed extensively at many parties through out the former Eastern Block, ranging from Poland, Czech Republic, Yugoslavia, Slovakia and not to forget many cities in Germany. Joe has also played alongside many top names like; Sven Vath, Dave Clark, Timo Maas, Eric Morillo, Tim Deluxe, Faithless, Kosheen, Dj Rush, Dj Tiesto and many more..
In spring 2001 he teamed up with Corvin Dalek to produce his first single on Flesh called “Ride Me”- this impressive debut single was nominated and won best single of the year, at the Maltese Music Awards 2001.
2002 Joe has had his first solo release with the single “Very Nice”. This single came out on Flesh and did was very popular in Warsaw and obviously in Malta as it features the vocals of Ali Bubaker, one of Malta’s most popular TV presenter and comedian.
Joseph works also with former Cybersecrecy, Mike Bülow and has created a new project, "Armani & Masto – a.k.a. Jerome Masto " . Together they make a great team .‘Liberta’ , their first release was featured on The Sound of Sage Taxi 4 compilation, released January 2003 and they got very good comments from every review appeared on top music magazines.
In 2003, Joe met a young and talented German producer, Jan Kessler. They started off collaboration together which as result came ‘Infatuation’, Joe’s latest release on Casino records/Aroma music, Berlin which is already a favorite with Top International DJ’s such as David Guetta and John Digweed who have been supporting it for the last couple of month.
Another achievement came this year when Ministry of Sound, Germany asked Joseph to remix the legendary Tyree Cooper’s latest single ‘On Tha Floor’, which is currently out on promo.
Another side project which Joseph is working on is – Planetworkx. This is a pop oriented project which is targeting to hit the European Pop Charts . The team is made up from Riccardo DC, which has a vast experience in this market with more than 300 releases all over the world, Gene Ezdi, who is one of the best Studio Engineers in Germany, and Joseph himself. Planetworkx have just finished working on a Maltese duet named ‘Ali & Lis’ consisting of Annelise & Alison Ellul , which they will be also submitting two of the productions for the Song for Europe.
Late in 2004 ‘Infatuation’ was signed to French House giants : David Guetta and Bob Sinclair’s brand new label “F*** Me I’m Famouse!” label as their first release. At the moment Joseph is resident DJ in 3 of Berlin’s top clubs, Sage Club, Casino & WMF where he plays once a month in each club and he is also playing a lot around Germany and Europe.
