P-Money Signs to Duck Down Music US

P-Money Signs to Duck Down Music US


Dawn Raid Entertainment, LLC and Dirty Management are pleased to announce that highly accomplished producer and DJ, P-Money, has signed a new deal with US label, Duck Down Music.

With a string of platinum albums and number one singles to his credit, P-Money has become a household name in New Zealand. Now he joins stable mate David Dallas as the latest Kiwi to sign a deal with the renowned New York based label that has distributed projects for 9th Wonder, B-Real of Cypress Hill, Talib Kweli, De La Soul, Buckshot, Pete Rock & Smif N Wessun, Sean Price and more.

The news comes off the back of his success working with soulful songstress Aaradhna whose latest album Treble & Reverb he produced. The critically acclaimed album’s lead single ‘Wake Up’ has gone platinum, and the record taken her to new heights with the recent announcement of her own record deal with Republic Records US.

A true ambassador of NZ Music, P-Money also 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 DJ’ing, 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, and in the diverse range of artists lining up to collaborate with him – just in the last year he has worked with sister-DJ-duo MayaVanya, George FM buddy Dan Aux, Iva Lamkum, Six60 and Australian emcee Sky’High.

P-Money is currently working on his fourth studio album Gratitude, due for release later this year.

So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
