Shambhala 2016 is hot on our heels, and the entire lineup’s already out, so here are the top 8 acts that are going to knock your brains out at Shambhala.
The Canadian festival has only grown bigger and better since its inception, and with a beast of a lineup this year, the festival is pulling all the stops to make the 2016 edition a grand success.
Without any further ado, here are the top 8 acts at this year’s Shambhala.
Getter has been on a roll. From releases like the phenomenal Radical Dude EP, to taking a completely different, more mellow direction with Planet Neutral, there is nothing stopping Getter. Oh, and he appears in Dillon Francis’ bonkers DJ World series. His concerts are mental, and he’s bringing the madness to Shambhala.
Ever since Opiuo started his 5-piece band, there has been no slowing down. Known for his organic, fast-paced glitch hop stuff, Opiuo is definitely one of a kind, with no one in the game coming close to his production ability.
Excision has been on a lot of Shambhala billings in the past, so it comes as no surprise that he’s performing at this year’s edition too. If you’ve been living under a rock, Excision’s production setup will blow your mind into a million pieces. Did we mention he still makes all that earth-shattering dubstep?
4. Gorgon City
The deep-house biggies are on Shambhala’s lineup, and we couldn’t be happier! Their track ‘Ready For Your Love’ made sure the duo reached unimaginable heights, and they’ve been touring the world with their infectious music ever since.
OWSLA’s jewel Mija has performed almost everywhere now. Her b2b with Skrillex elevated her to instant stardom, and ‘Crank It’ with Ghastly and Lil Jon made sure her graph didn’t go down. Her blend of bass house and dubstep is as hard-hitting as it is danceable.
6. Boys Noize
A legend in the EDM community, Boys Noize just released a phenomenal album, so expect him to play it out everywhere. His label Boysnoize Records has been choc-a-bloc with releases ranging from acid to breakbeats to everything house. Now, we only wish Dog Blood comes back.
7. What So Not
Flume’s departure from the act hasn’t slowed WSN down at all. With Chris Emerson (Emoh Instead) carrying the flag solo, WSN has released a couple of originals and remixes, with many more releases to come. It looks like 2016 is going to be his year.
Snails is synonymous with Vomitstep, a genre he introduced to describe his bass preset present in almost every doing of his. His sound design skills are impeccable, as present in most of his tracks, and we’re only waiting for another mix full of unreleased tracks from this guy.
That’s it folks! See you there!
