As someone who has seen CloZee many times, the best way to experience the otherworldly bass music she curates is deep in a sea of trees, close to nature. Shambhala provides the perfect setup for just that, listening to her tribal wubs and sweeping melodies. Her recent release “Back To The Top” displays her perfect balance of effervescent and heavy sounds. If you end up falling in love with her music, be sure to catch her first headlining performance at Red Rocks this October!

Of The Trees is the organic bass project of Tyler Coombs, a producer and visual artist known for creating sweeping melodic escapes and crawling basslines. Of The Trees is the perfect moment for a wompy vibe where the music feels like a massage for your brain. With absolute bangers like “Spanish Moss” and “The Owl Song,” Of The Trees truly encapsulates the spiritual with the grimy. He even recently created an immersive sensory experience with a performance in Denver that included his own personally curated visual designs.

Hailing from the ski town of Whistler, Canada, SkiiTour has been a frequent name on the Shambhala lineups throughout the years. This smalltown high-energy duo brings the heat to each performance with a range of genres from funk to bassline house. While they’ve released records on many labels such as Westwood Recordings and Good For You Records, they also created their own record label, Double Black Records. Their latest release, “Lose Our Heads” on Box of Cats, is the perfect pre-party pump-up song. Known for wearing retro ski gear, the crowd follows suit every year, bringing goggles, beanies, and 80’s themed glasses. Don’t forget to bring your ski gear too!

One set not to miss would be from the incredible Canadian artist Andrea Graham, better known as The Librarian. Her exuberant on-stage energy equally matches the bass music she throws down, from footwork and jungle to 130, 140, garage, and drum and bass. Co-Founder and Music Director for Canada’s Bass Coast Music Festival, The Librarian gives life to a new dynamic of forward-thinking music programming and installation art. Her recent release, the miss u EP, incorporates the variety of bass music that cements her as one of bass music’s leading innovative creatives.
