Peer Pressure

Peer Pressure


Peer Pressure have accomplished what all party organizers dream of: hordes of beautiful young people losing it on their dance floors, unparalleled street cred, a party circuit that now extends throughout NYC, Baltimore, Chicago and Toronto, and DJs that are booked at countless loft and club parties


Entering our 3rd year, Peer Pressure is a staple on Montreal’s scene throwing some of the biggest parties featuring our resident DJs (Hatchmatik, A-Rock & Merk Meny), and countless A-list guests from around the world. Our DJs unique take on the world of mash-up, baile, hip hop, crunk, baltimore and electro has successfully and consistently brought together the many segregated scenes in Montreal. Peer Pressure started in 2005 with soon to be jam packed weeklies at Vinyl, ever popular loft jams and much hype in Montreal earning the coveted Best Club Night Vote in the Montreal Mirror’s annual poll as well as great spots on best DJ, promoter and after parties lists; previously unheard of for a crew so new. As attendance quickly surpassed Vinyl’s capacity, and requests from larger acts to play a Peer Pressure event poured in, we were soon forced to move. Following our one-year anniversary bash with Low Budget and Cosmo Baker, and numerous POP Montreal events we made the official leap to a larger monthly Showtime. In the midst of all this offers for our DJs to play outside Montreal increased, press coverage picked up locally and beyond and our DJs own production, remixes and mix cds gained hype. Now our DJs are booked regularly in Toronto and NYC, and have had tour stops in Baltimore, Richmond, Chicago, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and Halifax. Be sure to look for their mixes and remixes on the web and to check out all the glory on the Myspace and Facebook accounts.
