Joint Effort was started as a collaborative music project by Stephen Bishop (DJ Stephen Nicholas formerly Peak) and Chris Ruiz (DJ Numinous) that incorporates a rotating roster of live musicians, MC’s and vocalists to accompany their electronic beats.
Joint Effort’s music production specializes primarily in Downtempo and Trip Hop. However, Deep House, Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, and Dubstep is produced as well.
Joint Effort spins House, Dancehall, Reggae, Dub, Dubstep, Jazz, and experimental DJ sets.
Joint Effort now resides both in Georgia and San Jose and are currently launching their respective labels Opium Scent Music & Deep Tone Laboratoriez along with their house music label Housekeeping Records.
