Young – Vallis Alps (Omnist Remix)

So, this is a remix by Omnist..who is Canadian, and there is literally NOTHING else written on the world wide web about he/she. I cannot wait to hear more done by this artist, and since there is nothing else written about the song I supposed all there is left to do is discuss how this song makes me feel. Beginning with the original- the words and the beat instill this feeling of time passing, of restless souls, of searching for your roots.

“In my hair were winter flowers – And weeks went by but felt like hours”. Thats my favorite line.

This remix adds that flow, those vibes, and the sensation of emotional flux. When I listen I cannot help but imagine what the sky would look like from the bottom of the ocean, glistening and shifting in all it’s sinusoidal glory. As the days fade to night, and the years bring about the change into who we will be, songs like this light the way. Stay tuned with this new Canadian artist by following them on Soundcloud or Facebook. I can only imagine seeing them around our festival scene will become a reality in the next year or two.

Make changes, take risks, enjoy your life, and do NOT waste your youth with materialist endeavors if you can help it.

One Love – Whit

Crazy- Subvert feat. Cara May & Nightshade

Subvert is a bass heavy DJ and grandfather in the dubstep world. Although born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, he has played around the globe and earned his spot as a resident of the Village stage at Shambhala Music festival.

When Subvert started DJ’ing 16 years ago, a wise DJ told him something that stuck with him, “You’re not just playing music, you’re taking people on a journey.” Subvert clearly took this to heart and has proven this through his effort to cross boundaries through multiple styles of music to show people genres don’t matter as long as the bass and love are there.

This track, Crazy, was released in 2011 and has since been one of my favourite tracks to come from Subvert. The female vocals, lyrics, and heavy bass line is infectious and makes my inner bass face come out in full force. If you press play and don’t get low, head bang the beat, or feel the bass hit your face…. we can’t be friends.

JK!!..kind of

Much Love
