Sensibly Fresh Mix: Abstrakt Sonance & DJ Mark Farina @ Shambhala 2018
The aftershock of Shambhala 2018 continues to rumble as more tasty sets come to light. This week’s Sensibly Fresh Mix comes courtesy of two of the dopest acts to perform at this year’s 21st anniversary. Occupying two starkly contrasting sonic realms, Abstrakt Sonance and DJ Mark Farina both bring a wealth of skill and ingenuity to their sets.
Hailing from Salmon Arm, British Columbia enigmatic bass maestro Abstrakt Sonance is one of the most intriguing artists in the world of bass. His deep, dark and slightly unnerving brand of production has turned him into an uncontrollable force to be reckoned with. Drawing inspiration from some of the negative chapters of his past, including homelessness, addiction and near death, Abstrakt Sonance harnesses a truly visceral energy in his art.
A complete polar opposite to Abstrakt, DJ Mark Farina is a bona fide legend in the world of house music. Since the late 80’s Farina has been lauded as a tastemaker of the genre and a true visionary in the industry. Firmly rooted in the underground and with a penchant to break boundaries, Farina has shown no signs of slowing down. His pristine set at the Living Room this August was a testimony to his timeless talent.
