Sensibly Fresh Mix: Shambhala 2018 Warm Up Vol. 1
Shambhala Music Festival is less than 50 days away. Perhaps the most immersive, creative and well-produced music festival in North America, Shambhala has become one of our favorite places on Earth. There is just nothing like returning home to the Salmo River Ranch, surrounded by the gorgeous Kootenay Mountains in the majestic wilderness of British Columbia. What started out over 20 years ago as a word of mouth gathering among friends, has bloomed into one of the most innovative and forward-thinking music festivals in the world. Shambhala 2018 is set to be one for the record books, with many artists who missed their sets last year poised to return.
Known for it’s incredibly curated lineup and legendary unique stages, Shambhala strives to separate itself from the ever-growing rabble of festivals. Built on the camaraderie and deep connection of its attendees, Shambhala continues to push the envelope but remain rooted to the traditions of what has made it great since day one. Leading up to the festival we are going to warm up with a look at our most anticipated performances for each of Shambhala’s wondrous stages.
Lost City – The duo of veteran producers Noah D & No Thing will be excited to bring their unique take on Jungle to the bass haven of The Village.
Stanton Warriors – Since breaking into the scene in 2001 London’s Stanton Warriors have an uncategorisable sound that has earned them major respect and adulation. If their set in the Fractal Forest is any indication of what’s to come this is going to be one of the best sets of Shambhala 2018.
The Living Room
Smalltown DJs – One of the most exciting and highly anticipated sets of Shambhala is always Smalltwon DJs. Their bass heavy house music is a staple of the festival and we can’t wait to boogie on the beach with these Canadian legends.
Edamame – Chicago’s Edamame is currently killing the game and turning plenty of heads. With legends like Pretty Lights backing him up there’s no doubt he’s poised to blow up. His upcoming set at The Grove is going to be one not to miss for sure.
Maximono –Dirtybird duo Maximono are steadily amassing a major following. With the twosome quietly becmoing a global force to reckon with there is no doubt that their set at The Pagoda will be all the way lit.
Roska – As part of Shambhala’s official warm up mix, Roska is definitely grabbing his opportunity with both hands to make a name for himself. One of the most exciting and refreshing names on the lineup, Roska’s unique brand of bass will get you moving.
