Diego Novoa aka El Papachango from Argentina moved to the states as a young adult and brought with him a love of music from south america that he blended with West Coast underground breaks and hip-hop to create a sonic groove that is unique and infectious to dance floors everywhere. Sexy , soulful and funky sounds come out of him even when he’s fast asleep. Diego is also one of the core creators of the legendary El Circo production that has been delivering music and a grip of very talented artists on massive systems across the planet, like Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, FreQ Nasty, Dj Laura, An-ten-nae and many others .

Shambhala Music Festival: Slowdjs Top Ten Artist Picks!

Shambhala_MusicFest_2014Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/596337863738081/

We are super pumped for Shambhala Music Festival this year; and why wouldn’t we be? With artists such as Bassnectar, Griz, Skream, Beats Antique, Mr. Scruff, Paper Diamond, Justin Martin, Phaeleh, Mark Farina, and Gordon City, to name a few, the 17th annual festival self-describes the lineup as, “its most powerful lineup to date.”

Check out this little teaser video they put together: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76NXD20DId8

As one of the longest running electronic music festivals in North America, this internationally famed gathering has become an institution in both the festival world and that of electronic music. This year’s lineup also includes the sultry sounds of J. Phlip, Odesza, Christian Martin, EOTO, Lucent Dossier Experience, Opiuo, Hannah Wants, plus a slew of other industry leading, genre-defying producers.

In anticipation of the festival, we decided to throw together a top 10 sets/artists we will be shaking our little booties to (in no particular order):

(1) Legends of House Showcase ft. Dj Dan, Mark Farina & Donald Glaude
(2) Mr. Scruff
(3) Figgy
(4) Falcons
(5) Z-Trip
(6) J.Phlip
(7) Chris Lorenzo
(8) B. Traits
(9) Jason Burns
(10) Justin Martin

Some words from the festival below:

“Shambhala Music Festival returns to the wooded mountainous awe of the 500-acre Salmo River Ranch near Nelson, BC from August 6th-11th on their privately owned, immaculately artistic landscape. What has become one of the most beloved venues in the world, natural and man-made features collide to create a unique environment for infinite exploration including six individually curated stages with their own aural and visual schemas, swimming in the river, yoga sessions, and several surprise speakers.

“As an event which has had an invaluable impact on the progression of electronic music and festivals alike, the Shambhala Music Festival represents a point of departure from the typical understanding of creative communities. By upholding its intimate form, the gathering is able to deliver a uniquely curated window into the most transformative sounds and sights on the planet. Through a synthesis of expertly crafted sensory experience, the festival stands apart as veterans in what is now an internationally explosive scene.”

Well said! In true festival style, we’ll be rolling out with a big, fun, crew this year for full force shenanigans. We look forward to and hope to see all your beautiful faces up there.
