Suit up and get ready to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Pushin’On. From humble beginnings in a small bar on Circular Road in 2006, Pushin’On is still Singapore’s only regular funk night. Over the years Pushin’On has evolved from a rare funk DJ night into a scene that religiously pushes funk, soul, disco, boogie and hip-hop music by Singapore based DJs, emcees, musicians and dancers. Your support has helped us reach the mil…estone of our 5th anniversary. For that, you deserve a big party!
Mr Magic | www.sg-magic.com
Mr Magic is always down for some of the deep funk, jazz and old skool breaks. If you’re down for the ride, he will cruise through some of the most timeless tunes in the history of deep funk. Let Mr Magic set your groovy scene.
Gonzo | www.the-gonzo.com
Gonzo is all about discovering strange and old things that have been ignored or forgotten. A regular flea market enthusiast every country he calls home, he looks for rare music, unknown films, discarded photos or abandoned furniture, and tries to transform them into something appealing. And then share them with you.
DJ Koflow | www.djkoflow.com
What else can we say about one of our long time collaborators and a DJ who has EPs, an album, a dynamite stage presence and has played almost every kind of gig you can imagine? How about a special vinyl-only collaboration with DJ Shellsuit in an old-school style back-to-back. 2 DJs, 2 decks and whole lot of madness.
DJ KFC | KFC on Soundcloud
DJ KFC’s ‘no music, no life’ philosophy has taken him through the multitudes of musical genres with true verve and appreciation. Known for throwing different genres into his mixes but always keeping the vibe and energy on the floor, his heart and soul shines through his feel good sets.
Funk Bast*rd | Cosa Nostra, Darker than Wax
The name needs no introduction. One half of the Cosa Nostra duo, Funk Bast*rd has left indelible marks on many dancefloors with his genre-bending sets of funk, soul, dancefloor jazz, brazillian, afro, dub, deep house, boogie and anything cosmic in between. If you got the groove, you will feel where this selector is coming from.
DJ Dave Code | Dave Code on Soundcloud
One of the original Pushin’On DJs returns home with tons of new finds from the UK and beyond. Tonight he dishes out hip hop, boogie, disco, breaks, disco-rap and re-edits. All very focused on moving the dancefloor.
DJ Chunk | Pushin’On
With no explanation where the name Chunk comes from, we suspect it refers to a well-fed childhood. Whatever it is, these days it’s just the beats that are heavy. Kicking drums and funky bass are the order of the day when Chunk is on the decks.
DJ Shellsuit | Pushin’On, Shellsuit on Soundcloud
Compulsive record digger and music nut, this Pushin’On resident’s sets cover anything from reggae to rap to rockabilly. On a special freestyle vinyl-only set with Koflow, anything could and probably will happen.
Aidan Bamrah | Bamrah Brothers
One half of the brilliant Bamrah brothers, Aidan is a talented rhythmist who specialises in Afro-Brazilian and Funk and has shared the stage with the likes of Billy Cobham, Johnny Kalsi, Chico Cesar and Wicked Aura. Catch his percussive brilliance and infectious energy as he collaborates with the DJs into the night.
