Pigeon Hole tend to kick up the most dust in the new year leading up to festival time. It’s a good sign. Tends to get the mood built. This year has some G-Funk in rotation, another welcome surprise. The Snoop D O double G laced wobbles on in a true West Coast fashion.
Ready for some unheard? Badmen Pigeon Hole teaming with female vocalist Charlotte Coleman. Growing up we all heard and spoke the phrase “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me,” only to go home to weep in the reflection pond after school. The next day filing a hurt feelings report on the hurtful incident itself. Blah blah. This is the 2014 rendition, modernized, feeled, and swagged.

It’s now time for a performers perspective in this interview series. From aspiring to attained our focus remains on the island. ₵OL!И of Pigeon Hole of the Sweatshop union has performed, been featured and appeared on the festivals first digital leg release. Listen, love, learn and motivate.
How does Shambhala stand apart from other festivals?
It’s hugeness…the sound…the stages…the experience. You’re basically on a camping trip with some of the greatest DJ’s you could hope to see, all your friends and thousands of great strangers. It’s amazing. It just breathes life into you.
Performance wise, what’s the vibe you feel from audiences, crowd and performers all round?
The vibe is great. I just feel so comfortable and welcome out there you know. Like you’d think you’d be a little more shook or anxious to play out there but everyone is so happy and you just buzz of that. It’s awesome.
From an artists perspective what does the festivals new label mean?
I mean for me its like getting a stamp of approval from one of the most influential and respected festivals out there. We were definitely honoured to be a part of the first release.
How doe’s the label potentially affect Western Canadian artists reach?
I’m not too sure. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I know Shambhala itself has a massive reach so hopefully the label will evolve to have that same reach.
Are you confident the label will represent the region accurately?
If you had to narrow it down to one thing that the festival best represents for local artists what would it be?
The best time you’ll have all year.
If you had a to pick two genres that have echoed throughout the years from the PK systems which would they be?
For me hearing Dubstep on that system a few years back was insane. It made me want to make my tunes LARGER. Drum and Bass too. Some of the best sets I’ve seen at the Village have been drum and bass.
What were your highlights of 2014?
The funk jam for sure. I danced from the first to last track with a shit eating grin on my face haha! So many talented dudes playing.
What does Shambhala mean to you?
Shambhala is a game changer. It changed my whole process of making music. It even changed the way I view day to day life. For me the first time going it was the kind of experience I left feeling like a better, happier person. It actually feels like my life shifted gears after that first time.
The boys of Sweatshop Union are at it again. Pushing hard into summer once more with the free. Yesterday Pigeon Hole half ₵OL!И let loose his remix of last years ‘June‘ . In succession Future Classics brings you a new original in the unpredictable duo’s arsenal that will be pounding festivals this summer. The first of which being The Groove Music Festival in Midway BC. As far as representing Western Canada’s interior inhabiting producers and DJ’s goes, the lineup is locked. For the interiors deeper and dirtier Breaks pallet ‘Bouncing’ will go down smoothly. As smoothly as the free download PG has given up as here today. Check out The Groove Music Festival and keep bouncing.
Was never convinced of JT’s bringing of anything to the table musically.. even sexiness. What was needed was a bold and humorous infusion of Patrick Swayze & Pigeon Hole to bring sexyback to a floor. Watch the video for full Swayze & cop the DL from ₵OL!И.

YES! Before Stero MC’s was all up on Telus commercials I was rummaging through mums CD collection finding gems like this. The thing is when your just listening to Korn and Blink 182 your just not sure if you should be liking as worldly a sound such as Cutty Ranks. Years later, I came to terms Cuttys wholesome goodness, and now Pigeon Hole make him right in 2013. What a crazy mixed up party world.
