Style and influences[edit]

Push Button Objects' style of music uses hip hop as an underlying foundation with the addition of DSP-processed sounds, unusual samples, elements of electro, Detroit techno, Miami bass, jungle and other musical rudiments somewhat alien to the genre of hip hop. PBO's sound is comparable to his contemporaries like RJD2, Prefuse 73 and Dabrye.[8]
