Beni G, one half of the Mixologists, and a standing mastermind behind Jack Beats, has not only won multiple DJ competitions alongside his partner Plus One, but has produced many, singles, compilations, mixtapes, and remixed popular tracks such as, Major Lazer and Flux Pavillion’s, “Jah No Partial,” “Little Secrets” by Passion Pit and Skrillex and Diplo’s “Dirty Vibe.” The project started in London and has been a chart staple since 2007.

Jack Beats performed at festivals including Coachella, EDC, and Sonar. This year, Jack Beats will make an appearance at Shambhala Music Festival in British Columbia. Dancing Astronaut has been gifted with an exclusive, hour-long, mix from the outfit, that will give all attendees a wondrous preview of what will be heard at the farm.

Shambhala is known as the largest and longest running electronic music festival in Canada and exhibits a strong sense of community and respect for all artistic expression. Shambhala is located on a family-owned farm in the West Kootenay mountains near Nelson, British Columbia. The festival is an all-around transformative experience that leaves you overly stimulated for 4 days and 3 nights. This year’s lineup includes other legendary acts such as Silk City (Diplo and Mark Ronson), Anti-Up (Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo), and Zeds Dead. Every performer puts together a special set for Shambhala, so we can only imagine the type of production Jack Beats will bless the farm with.

Shambhala unveils REZZ as first of 2018 headliners

This post was originally published on this site

When REZZ made her extraordinary debut appearance at Shambhala Music Festival in 2016, her beloved performance was widely regarded as one of many breakout moments in her, at the time, short career. The mau5trap signee was also among Shambhala’s most anticipated returning artists among organizers and attendees in 2017.

Sadly, REZZ was instructed not to travel to last year’s event when the festival faced imminent cancellation due to raging wildfires in the area.

Now, less than 200 days out from Shambhala’s return, organizers have made a special, unexpected announcement that REZZ was the first of the 2018 headliners to be announced.

Affectionately known as “Space Mom” by fans, the Canadian-bred female powerhouse talent tweeted to her cult following over her shock and gratitude at the sudden festival announcement.

Shambhala will return to Salmo River Ranch near Nelson, British Columbia this August 10th–13th, 2018. Tickets and ShambhaLodging camping packages are available online.
