#Shambhala2018 Official Mix Series 01:
•• Dirt Monkey ••
Shambhala Music Festival is pleased to kick off this year’s mix series with, none other than, DIRT MONKEY.
You may have heard Dirt Monkey (aka Patrick Megeath) on tour with Bear Grillz, or as direct support to Ganja White Night on a nearly sold out 2018 tour. Carving his uplifting, bouncy, and unique sounds into the bass music scene, he’s been smashing 2018 with roughly a dozen recent high profile releases, including his revival remix of Rusko’s “Woo Boost” which satisfyingly ignites the nostalgia of the time dubstep was in its prime.
A staple in the Denver, Colorado dubstep community, he’s held it down with a residency at Beta Nightclub for the last 5 years. Dirt Monkey has garnered support from many of his peers in the dubstep and bass genre including Griz, Rusko, Excision, Snails, Liquid Stranger, A-Trak, Virtual Riot, Anna Lunoe, Annie Nightingale (BBC Radio 1), Downlink, Ganja White Night, and Protohype. Currently on a co-headliner tour with Subtronics, “Warp Drive 18”, he’ll continue to bring his unique sound to the global audience.
His exclusive #Shambhala2018 Mix features unreleased collabs with Blunts & Blondes, DMVU, Kompany, and Subdocta. Fusing a variety of high-energy sounds, the mix swings from trap, to old school dubstep to house with some dirty remixes of Missy Elliott, Ivy Lab, Tipper, Buku and Boogie T, staying true to his “Dirt Monkey” moniker.
Press play to listen to it here first and hold on to your seats as you prepare for his debut at The Village – rest assured, it’ll be bananas. 🙉🍌
What have you heard about Shambhala Music Festival?
DM: I’ve heard it’s the most epic festival that there is, from artists who have played and from people who have gone. It’s been my all time dream gig since I started making dubstep back in 2009.
Are you ready to camp in the BC Wilderness?
DM: Yea bring it on! Camping is way better than staying in a hotel.
What will your Shambhala Spirit Animal be?
DM: My spirit animal for the weekend will be a mountain goat. They are pretty low key for the most part but are really extreme when they need to be.
