P-Money is New Zealand’s most renowned Producer and DJ. His incredible talents in the studio and behind the decks have made him a household name in NZ and an artist to watch internationally.
Only a handful of DJs can create both a great live mix and produce amazing original songs, move a dancefloor in the smallest club and knock out main-stage festival sets of legendary proportions. When you shift your lens towards the South Pacific I’d dare say there is only one man who fits the description. P-Money, the Papakura born DJ and Record Producer, is an iconic figure of the New Zealand music scene and for very good reason.
P-Money’s musical pedigree is certified with a string of Number One hits and Platinum selling albums to his credit. A true ambassador of NZ Music he co-wrote and produced five of the biggest New Zealand singles of the past decade; “”Not Many””, “”Stand Up””, & “”Stop The Music ft Scribe””, “”Keep On Callin ft Akon”” and “”Everything ft Vince Harder””. The latter of which broke through to UK airwaves on BBC1 and was dubbed Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World.
As a teenager P-Money poured endless hours into his craft of DJing, a discipline that would see him compete in numerous DJ Battles worldwide and culminate in a 3rd Place prize at the DMC World DJ Championship (a Bronze Medal in the Olympics of the DJ World!). The skills developed during those competitive years are evident every time P takes the stage to perform.
He and business partner Callum August founded independent record label Dirty Records in 2001, launching the careers of local rap superstars Scribe, David Dallas and PNC. When Dirty Records released P-Money’s debut album “”Big Things””, an entire generation of Hip-Hop artists were inspired and a new benchmark set for all NZ releases to aspire to.
P-Money’s scope of production work spans from Hip-Hop and Rap into the world’s of Pop, Dance, R&B and Soul music. Producing a series of Dance singles with the likes of Dan Aux, MayaVanya, Kaleena Zanders and CTFD and most notably on the critically acclaimed “”Treble & Reverb”” album by New Zealand Soul sensation Aaradhna.
In 2013 P-Money signed an exciting new deal with US label Duck Down Music (joining stable mate David Dallas as the latest Kiwi to team up with the renowned New York based label) to release his sixth album â€œGratitudeâ€ including tracks with Talib Kweli, Freddie Gibbs, Roc Marciano, M.O.P., Havoc (of Mobb Deep), Buckshot, Aaradhna, Nicole Wray (Lady), Fashawn, Skyzoo, Jamall Bufford, Pac Div, STS, Blaison Maven, Monsta G and @Peace.
In 2014 P-Money released the underground Hip-Hop album ‘Backpack Travels’ alongside legendary Brooklyn MC, Buckshot (of Black Moon) and collaborated on an official Reggae Dancehall EP “”The Baddest EP”” with the UK’s shining star of Reggae, Gappy Ranks.
