After a little bit of a hiatus, Arntre is back for it’s 22nd installment of Picks of the Week, featuring some of the freshest tracks on soundcloud. We feature these tracks in a playlist on our Soundcloud account, so make sure to follow us on there. This installment, we are featuring a variety of artists from across different genres. Some of the tracks will be recent releases & some might be a little bit older releases, we have had 9 months since our last Picks of the Week.
Out today, Big Gigantic’s Bright Futures Remix Album is out now available for streaming & download. There are many big names & solid tracks on the album, but my absolute favorite was The Funk Hunters remix to ‘Got the Love (feat. Jennifer Hartswick.’ They created a perfect mid tempo remix to an already terrific track. Featuring the beautiful vocals from Jennifer Hartswick, this track is the perfect mix of funky electronic. They are currently on their Summer tour & gearing up for a Fall Tour as so look for them in a city near you.
“So happy to share our official remix for Big Gigantic today!! ‘Got the Love’ was our favourite song from Brighter Future so it was an honour to flip this one into a funky midtempo banger which has been destroying dance floors at festivals all summer long!!”
Tucked away in the Rocky Mountains of Canada, located on the Salmo River near Nelson, BC lies one of the most unique music festivals in the world. Shambhala music festival is a wonderful place filled with adventure. This year will be the 20th anniversary of this music festival located on the Salmo River Ranch & has one of the best vibes a music festival can offer. Have you ever wanted to live in a music festival for a week in the forrest in the middle of no where? This is your chance.
There is so much that makes this festival unique from the people that attend to the atmosphere to the music. Artists create truly unique sets for the party. You can see your favorite artist any where in the world, but you will see a unique set tailored to the Shambhala vibe. With 5 uniqe stages, each offering a different style. Some even change as the sun goes down.
The camping is primo, you have options of camping in different areas. You can camp out in the open or back in the woods for more privacy, some even camped on the river. Festival goers build wonderful and amazing camps. Last year I stayed in Camp Stranger Danger which is a unique experience in itself. It is a camp organized for solo attendees, couples, or anyone who doesn’t have a large group to go in already. Inclusion is everything when it comes to Shambhala. Once you decide you need a break from the music, you can always head back to camp and find some smiles. The amount of positive vibes littered through the forrest. Smiles for miles and dancing spirits everywhere. People traveled from as far away as Australia.
With the release of today’s phase 1, who are you most excited to see? We see our home girl Whipped Cream will be playing. Some others, that I am personally excited to see (yes Arntre will be at Shambhala this year) are Chali 2na & the Funk Hunters, Rezz, Space Jesus, SkiiTour, Defunk, Pendelum, DJ Craze, Kill the Noise & Stickybuds.
Let us know if you will be attending this year! Happy Shambs!
