Thanks to their whimsical DJ sets, the popularity of their records, and the rise of their illustrious Mood Hut collective, Pender Street Steppers, comprised of Jack J and Liam Butler, have become ambassadors for Vancouver’s house scene despite only having a handful of releases.

Their sound, which consists of strutting basslines, disco breaks, rompler presets, disco dubbing and a laidback, easy, breezy sound, and their reluctance towards interviews, press, photos, and promo, have made them virtual modern dance music deities. Somehow, Pender Street Steppers have managed to live up to the hype, where they have shown that they are able deliver a modern classic at any given opportunity.
