• PUSHMANN 🇪🇸
( AXIS, SYMBOLISM, HARDGROOVE )
After fifteen years of incessant and persistent work and performances in clubs all over Spain, Pushmann has become one of Spain’s top DJs and producers – whose influences have been hip-hop, funk and house, among other styles. Pushmann, delivers techno for the mind, body and soul. Pushmann produces a Detroit-like sound with clear and strong influences from the European musical culture, such as Berlin and Birmingham’s. His imaginary sound is based on the fast-paced, industrial and mechanical high-octane techno. In his classic genre, his purest style, he delivers raw goodness to intrigue the listener to take him to a higher level: power, darkness and fierceness serving the dance floor. Pushmann pays special attention and taste for metallic percussion and cavernous steel drums well placed in front of everything, almost warlike. His surgical and haunting melodies, looped and accelerated to paroxysm, never goes unnoticed, shaping his style with a sophisticated bestiality that stuns and spreads like wildfire. As a DJ – this self-confessed lover of vinyl and a three-deck performer – enjoys a refined technique after many years of selecting only the best techno, house and ghetto-techno. His DJ sets are defined as strong, energetic and vibrant performances. In addition to producing on labels like AXIS, Symbolism, KMS Records, Be As One, Matterwave, End Of Dayz, Pushmann is also the owner of N&N Records. His releases have caught the attention, and are being played by artists such as Jeff Mills, Ben Sims, Truncate, Josh Wink, Kevin Saunderson and James Ruskin. Make way for the Pushmann… a powerful performer and a massive techno composer.

John-E is also half of the duo Stereo Addiction and till today resident & member of LXMusic where he’s played along-side some of the best artists in the world.
