Pigeon Hole Discuss Their Love For Shambhala & New “Noise Parade” EP Out Now Via Outer Realms
Above all else, Shambhala is a community that constantly seeks to uplift its members. Countless artists have used the world famous festival as a springboard to launch their careers into the stratosphere. The most cutting-edge bass music is coming out of the west coast right now. Local Canadian artists are at the forefront of bass production and Shambhala is constantly putting underground talent center stage.
Hailing from Victoria, Canada hip-hop and bass production duo Pigeon Hole perfectly embodies the renegade spirit of Shambhala. Comprised of Lee Napthine and Colin McCue, Pigeon Hole has amassed an arsenal of dope tracks with releases on Stylust’s Sleeveless Records and their new Noise Parade EP on Minnesota’sOuter Realms.
After two high octane sets at The Amphitheater and The Village, Colin McCue of Pigeon Hole took a few of our questions ranging from their upcoming fall tour with Minnesota and Bassnectar dropping their tunes.
Sensible Reason: As two guys hailing from Victoria, Canada, Shambhala has no doubt played a role in your musical development. Can you tell us how Shambhala has helped you grow as artists and musicians?
Pigeon Hole: Shambhala is home base for what we do. Coming from a hiphop background then experiencing Shambhala for the first time 8 years ago completely changed how we make music. magic happens at Shambhala.
PH: Yeh that was wild. Temperature was definitely a major difference for one. Those daytime opening slots are amazing, so much energy and excitement from all angles. People are so ready just to get wild. The village set was crazy. we’ve always wanted to play a night time set at the Village. I honestly couldnt believe it was happening.
SR: You will also be supporting Minnesota on tour this fall. What are you most looking forward to while on the road?
PH: Seeing new places. We get to hit so many cities for the first time. So excited about that tour!
SR: You bring an insane energy to all of your performances. What can someone who has never been to a Pigeon Hole show expect from the experience?
SR: Recently Bassnectar dropped your track “Next Level” during one of his sets in Colorado. What was it like for you to see that?
PH: That was a trip. seeing anyone drops one of our tunes is always the hugest compliment but that was unreal.
