Juice was born in Dallas, TX as Charlie Peters on July 27th, 1972. Ever since he was a little one Juice had been drawn to the rhythmic beats of music. To keep him occupied, his mother used to set him in front of a Marantz turntable and let him rock back and forth to the beat. Charlie would do this for hours as long as there was music to keep his ears and mind occupied. As he grew older, Charlie became involved in musical plays and activities that occurred at his schools that he attended as well as extra-curricular activities as well. Music has been in his life for as long as he could remember.
In the late eighties and early nineties, Charlie became fascinated with a strange new type of music his older brother was listening to when he came back from college. It was termed industrial music. Charlie started listening to the likes of Nitzer Ebb, Skinny Puppy, and Ministry. These genres later led him to start listening to the likes of Simon Harris, Todd Terry, A Guy called Gerald, and 808 State. After experimenting with being a DJ for a while, Charlie headed off to college so that he could complete his education. While at the University of North Texas, Charlie fell out of the music scene and concentrated on other passions in his life like exercising and fitness. While doing so he started to miss the beats, the familiar rhythms, the driving bass lines of electronic music. After a hiatus of five years from the dance music culture, Charlie dove right back into it by assembling a home studio. After working on music production and obtaining a degree in audio engineering, he decided to get back into playing the music he so very much loved.
In the fall of 2000, Charlie purchased himself a pair of Technics 1200s and a mixer. After many nights practicing his technique and building his vinyl library, Juice released his first CD Born in early 2001. The following months were spent honing his skills as a DJ and finding his sound. In late 2001, Juice signed on with a local booking agency in Dallas, Epik Entertainment, that specializes in providing Trance DJs. Epik and Juice have formed a great working relationship that has afforded Juice a bi-weekly spot at the Lizard Lounge in Dallas and has had him play on the same bill as international DJs like Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, Jessie Saunders, and Daniel Bailey.
Juice has become a rising star in the Texas electronic dance scene. With his versatility in playing everything from Progressive House, to Breaks, to Hard Trance and Hard House, Juice has been making a name for himself as a Performer to be reckoned with. His gift to take the audience on a mind altering journey is clearly evident in his Demos as well as his performances in playing out. He has the ability to take the listener on a roller coaster journey through his sets, as he seems to tap into all the euphoric emotions that keep the dance scene alive and vibrant. His ability to stay focused and in tune with what the audience wants and needs lies in the fact that he prefers to employ his skills bone sober. Music is all that Juice has ever needed to stay connected to the energy and wants of his audience. Either spinning solo or in tag with his music production partner Rx, Juice keeps the vibe thick as the night progresses.
Make no mistake; Juice is a force to be seen. He does not let the crowd down and delivers as promised when he performs. His constant professionalism and fun attitude help set the tone for the night to come. Now that he has set his sights on music production with DJ Rx, great things are bound to happen. When it comes to high energy and euphoric Trance, he continues to deliver the goods. Epik Entertainment and Juice have begun to set the Texas party scene on fire and soon, the nation will follow!
