Regarded as one of New Zealand's pre-eminent producers and DJs, P-Money (Peter Wadams) shot to mainstream recognition in 2002 for his work with hip hop hero Scribe on 'Stop The Music' - a No.1 single that featured on Scribe's double platinum-selling Magic City. Awards followed, with the Auckland producer taking Best Male Solo Artist and Best Hip Hop Album at the 2005 NZ Music Awards. P-Money hit number one on both the singles and radio airplay charts in 2008 with the pumping dance collaboration (with Vince Harder), 'Everything'.
Hip-hop DJ and producer P-Money moves to the dance floor with this pumping, chart topper which marks the recording debut of Australian X Factor finalist Vince Harder. In Rebecca Gin’s quirky video, P Money has a whirlwind romance which starts in a supermarket and ends in tears in a club (with a sharp contrast between the white of daytime and the blacks of the night scenes) but the “shoulder friends” are the attention grabbers here. They represent the music that people carry around with them (or, at least, until they venture down one dark alley too many).
Clever lighting and plenty of rain feature on the video for this chart-topping P-Money track. As he had with Scribe's breakthrough hit 'Stand Up', P-Money melds Scribe's rapping talents with loud guitars. Directed by Greg Page, the moody widescreen clip also features Elemeno P's Justyn Pilbrow on guitar, and Sam Sheppard from 8 Foot Sativa on drums. 'Stop the Music' appeared on P-Money's second studio album, NZ Music Award-winner Magic City (2004).
