Smalltown DJs are no strangers to the Nelson area. The have taken the stage at Spiritbar many times and will be back to entertain crowds tomorrow. The DJ duo will also be at Shambhala Music Festival this summer, and before the arrived in the Kootenays, the crew from Shambhala caught up with the guys for a few questions.

1. You’ve toured in a few different countries. What is the most memorable thing that has happened to you while on tour?

After we played at Lollapalooza a couple years ago they asked us to stick around at the end of the weekend and play the after party for all staff and bands with DJ AM. We were a bit nervous about it but so stoked as well. It was so cool to see bands like Broken Social Scene and Mark Ronson’s going off while we played, and all the staff that had worked so hard on the festival all weekend. Just a really fun and spontaneous event. The kind of thing that makes you love what you do.

2. Is there any recent advance in electronic music technology that stands out to you as the most interesting or inspiring?

I am a big Ableton Live fan, I think its such an amazing and powerful program and every day I learn something new about it.

3.How many years have you played Shambhala?

I think this will be our 10th! Holy Shit!

4. What is your most memorable moment at Shambhala?

There are way too many to count. Some of them are: when Vinyl Richie and BC/DC played back to back in the Village, Hoola doing his early morning disco sets, Boy 8-Bit in the Forest, Cosmo Baker and DJ Ayres at the funk jam, Beatnuts in the Rock Pit, Adam Freeland at the mainstage, Mike Relm in the Village, Numark in the Village, Stanton Warriors in the Forest, Vinyl Ritchie and Foxy Moron sets at the beach, The Yerba Mate place, and the great food.

5 What is next for Smalltown DJs?

We have a ton of new records coming out on T&A, No Brainer, Sol Selectas and others. Also some collaborations with Nick Thayer, Grandtheft, Astronomar and Willy Joy. This summer we are playing a bunch of fun shows and festivals. More music! More good times!

Smalltown DJs take play Spiritbar tomorrow. Doors open at 10 p.m.

Ticket information is available at the Hume Hotel.
