•• DJ Soup ••

As The Pagoda Stage Director and one of the forefathers of Shambhala Music Festival, Robbie Campbell Soup, is no stranger to a good party. He has been a resident of the Kootenay scene for the past 17 years and helped grow the dance culture in Nelson, BC Canada from a small town party scene to hosting one of the most legendary festivals in the world. He has performed from Europe to Brazil, all over the USA and Canada.

Hailing from a generation of strictly vinyl, he has always considered himself more of a DJ than a producer. His sets are high energy and quick mixing. A Discofari performance will have no regard for genres and seamlessly blast through tunes remastered and reedited from the past, present and future. The only constant, is that every track will make you wanna dance.

•• Justin Pleasure ••

“When it comes right down to it, it’s my love for house music that has kept me in it for all these years.”

Staying true to a genre is an understatement for Justin. A house music devotee since he first started DJ’ing in 1989, Justin spent the first 20 yrs of his DJ life hauling his flight cases of vinyl and helping pioneer the original warehouse/after-hours party scene in Western Canada.

“In the 90’s DJ’ing wasn’t what it was today, no MP3’s or easy access to music… vinyl was the only choice. Being both incredibly expensive and difficult to obtain, DJ’s had to make a serious commitment to the art to even be involved.”

Coming up through the golden age of classic house and techno though was a true gift. This helped forge Justin’s reputation for long, well curated house sets that have graced many venues, from main stage and fractal forest at Shambhala, to clubs and warehouses across Western Canada. And after all these years, Justin still has the same principle, expose the people to cutting edge, ‘hi-brow’ house music. Please enjoy responsibly.
