Deep Dark & Dangerous | Dank ‘N’ Dirty Dubz | Heavy Traffic Recordings | Sub.Mission
From late night renegades in the Santa Cruz mountains to dark, sweaty nightclubs, Pushloop has spent the better part of a decade flexing soundsystems with a commanding presence. Inspired by artists like Mala, Truth, The Widdler, and Kryptic Minds, Pushloop has carved out his own unique sound blending world music elements with deep, heavy basslines.
In March of 2016, Pushloop emerged from the studio with his first EP titled Jamila which released on the Bay Area's infamous Mallabel. A year later, Pushloop caught the ear of DJ Sashwat and signed his second EP Midnight Wax with Dank 'N' Dirty Dubz. Hitting #1 on the Juno Download Deep Dubstep Chart by the end of the first week, Midnight Wax solidified Pushloop's presence in the underground bass scene. Despite the success of Midnight Wax, Pushloop wasted no time getting back into the studio and by the summer had signed his next EP George Orwell to Deep, Dark, and Dangerous, the heavy-hitting label founded by the legendary Truth. Another chart-topping release, George Orwell showcased Pushloop's unique sound and ability to blend timeless melodies with chest-pounding bass. In addition to his EPs, Pushloop has also released multiple singles with ShadowTrix Music, Phantom Hertz Recordings, ThazDope Records, Åbysmal Ẹntities, Heavy Traffic Radio and Recordings, and Soundsystem Cultures.
While a passion for producing music has resulted in an impressive resume of releases, Pushloop began his love for dubstep as a DJ and this is clearly evident when he gets behind the decks. Pushloop takes pride in bringing crowds on a journey of bass, blending modern stompers with classic throwbacks and always dropping a healthy serving of his own dubs. With consistent bookings across North America, Pushloop is on a campaign to share his music with anyone who will listen and is an act that shouldn't be missed.
Driven by a tremendous desire to learn and create, Pushloop will never stop exploring sonic frequencies. Whether it's pushing loops in the studio or pushing loops on the decks, Pushloop will always be pushing the boundaries of bass music.
