For several years now the Pender Street Steppers (or “the Steppers” or sometimes just “PSS”) have been at the centre of Vancouver’s bustlin’ Pender Street music scene! A popular production and deejay duo, Liam Butler and Jack J have been behind some of their regions biggest dance music hits as well as some of the most sensual and stimulating evening music events.
Their debut release was a cassette on Mood Hut Cassettes, titled “Life in the Zone” and is best described as 90 minutes of all original productions. The tape contains tracks that have since been committed to vinyl by North American labels like Washington DC’s legendary PPU and Vancouver’s Mood Hut Records. It might be important to mention at this point that PSS are an essential planet in the Mood Hut nebula, the imprint (and lifestyle) behind some absolutely wonderful records by Aquarian Foundation, Ttam Renat, House of Doors and of course the Pender Street Steppers!
