At 5:02am on June 27th, 1992 a Chief was born. Voyce DeSouza aka MastaChief was born and raised in New York City. Just as everyone else involved with any kind of art, his calling found him early on in his lifetime. With a name like Voyce the fact that he would inherit a love for spoken word could be considered cliche. Chief took to the microphone in 2006 with a fury that allowed him to share stages with prolific MCs such as Professor Griff (of Public Enemy), Treach (of Naughty By Nature), Easy AD (of Cold Crush Brothers), Chubb Rock, Just Ice, NYOil (formerly Kool Kim of The U.M.C.'s), Hakim Green (of Channel Live), The Black Dot, Hasan Salaam, Rebel Diaz, SpiritChild, Division X, P.E.M.G. and the list goes on.
In the summer of 2010 he was introduced to the Rave Culture by his best friend and musical partner, Michael Moscoso of complextro duo Droid Beats. Michael offered the tips and tricks needed to understand what it was to perform to an electronic audience and was the first artist that believed in his ability, allowing them to share numerous stages together. Chief, while still remaining loyal to his roots began to venture out on his own as a separate entity. This allowed him to host numerous events on the east coast and to rock the mic behind renowned artist such as Angerfist, Zany, The Prophet, Coone, Zatox, Technoboy, Isaac, Frontliner, Ran-D, Adaro, Evil Activities/Max Enforcer, Psyko Punkz, Darren Styles, Gammer, Unexist, Rob Gee, Lady Faith, plus many more and many more will continue to come.
Recognizing that the duty of an MC is to back up what the DJ is doing has kept his style beneath the "annoying" sound the many others can produce. His ability to adapt to any situation (mixing style, genre, technical difficulties, crowd energy, stage set-up etc) separates his stage presence. The biggest asset that he has is the desire to not move the crowd but rather to move WITH the crowd; reading their vibe and acting accordingly. With many screams and hands in the air under his belt and many more tricks and surprises up his sleeve, MastaChief comes with the promise that enhancing the experience of any stage will happen with ease.
