After performing at British Columbia's Shambhala a whopping 14 times, it's pretty safe to say that UK-born, Whistler-based DJ and producer Mat The Alien is a mainstay at the popular Canadian electronic festival. While the 2017 edition is still 146 days away, today the Really Good Recordings boss has shared his hour-and-a-half 2016 Pagoda Stage set with THUMP.
As anybody who's seen him live before would expect, it's jam-packed with drum and bass, grime, hip-hop, and UK garage hits, not to mention a handful of his own skull-rattling edits and remixes (Big Krit's "My Sub Pt. 3," Howie Lee's "Flame Fighters," Travis Scott's "Antidote," to name just a few). By the time he ends with the 1-2 punch of DJ Pump's slowed-down "King Kunta" edit and Diemantle's playful James Brown bootleg, you'll be booking your tickets to British Columbia for August.
