Pushin’On this month brings together 2 guest DJs from across the generations. Plus the Mighty Mighty mixes it up like a DJ.
RAH’s ear for hip hop progressed to an appreciation for electronic and bass music. Attending underground parties since early 2000s was a pivotal factor in satiating her fascination with drum & bass. She landed her first gig at Good Times (Singapore, December ’09) and continued to make occasional appearances in the circuit such as Heavy Hong Kong (Hong Kong, ’10), and +65: DJ STORM (Singapore, ’11).
Recent mix tapes show her diverse influences in music while favouring head-bopping beats and groovy rhythms. RAH’s debut at Pushin’On will provide an aural insight into the realm of 80bpm – 130bpm.
NDC got into the business back in 1999 when things were a little different. The scene evolved and so did the style. However NDC’s timeless stew of old school hip hop, funk and soul still gets the crowd grooving. Apart from residencies at Fluid, Embargo & Loof between 1999 -2007, he has dropped legendary sets at Kinemat parties and Pushin’On nights. The next hook comes at Pushin’On this month.
Check out NDC live in the mix at Pushin’On in ’09

Masterpiece and the Mighty Mighty ‘live’
Jimmy Saville started it in ‘43. DJ Francis Grasso made beatmatching cool in ‘69 and Kool Herc stretched the breaks in ‘73. Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers showed that a band could go-go non-stop and Breakestra completely blurred the lines between DJ and band.
Tonight, the Mighty Mighty continues the rare tradition of non-stop party bands with the debut of a ‘live’ mix set. This 30 min set includes classics from Kool & The Gang, BT Express, The Chi-Lites, King Floyd, James Brown and the Quantic Soul Orchestra. Ladies, you’re strongly advised to wear comfortable shoes.
