Pausepushers

Concieved originally in North London, Pausepushers is a new dance music project that combines the gritty club atmosphere of today’s Jackin’ and Deep House scenes and infuses that with a rich mix of early Hip Hop, Disco, Soul and Funk. Pausepushers’ goal is to create soulful party music that is both edgy and fun and that also reflects the huge influence of growing up in London during the days of pirate radio. “Stations like LWR and (pre-legal) Kiss were pushing the boundaries with their eclecticism and truly reflected the underground.”
