After a mammoth anniversary party in Jan, Pushin’On jumps straight into the biznez of 2012 with a guest from Belgium. Plus the Mighty Mighty takes on Prince.
DJ Mig One (Starflam / Orishas)
Mig One is a producer and DJ from Belgium. When he’s not busy digging for records, he produces for Starflam, a platimum selling hip-hop band from Liege. This continues his successful production career, most notable for winning a Latin Grammy Award in 2003 for his work on Emigrante, the sophomore album from the Cuban hip-hop group Orishas. Mig One’s been busy trawling the streets of Singapore for precious vinyl and that’s going into his set at Pushin’On along with some wicked latin funk and hip-hop.
Catch the Pushin’On residents with some funky gems from 2012. The year is only 2 months old but so much good music has already come out. And we’ve got some of the best!
Hailing from Toronto, JNR credits his love for music to the weekly trips to the record shop at the local mall with his dad and siblings at a ripe young age of 5. Older cousins with regular basement parties also had a huge part in inspiring him to DJ. In Singapore since 1998, he has been purveying his brand of soul-inspired feel-good music whenever he plays. Whether it’s a throwback vibe of disco and rare groove nuggets, big apple disco rap, Philly soul, golden era hip hop, or the early sounds of house – his soulful selection will get you in the mood.
Masterpiece and the Mighty Mighty ‘live’
The Mighty Mighty’s 3-set session last month went down like a storm and for the whole of 2012, you will continue to enjoy 3 sets of funk, soul and R&B from Singapore’s toughest funk band. This month, the Mighty Mighty adds more heaters to the set including hipshakers from the Quantic Soul Orchestra and Kool & the Gang. PLUS a mashup of Prince with Frank Williiams and the Rocketeers; as we give respect to the original funk bomb that inspired Prince’s classic hit from 1986.
