Last week we had the pleasure of freezing our asses off in northern California’s b-e-a-utiful city of Lake Tahoe. The electronic/hip hop festival hybrid saw its fourth anniversary in the woodsy wonderland. Studded with an all-star lineup, SnowGlobe featured some of the more cutting edge acts in the underground electronic music scene…and Atmosphere, who was the only true hip hop act on the bill. Check after the jump for more on the festival and the artists that made it extra special.

Fasten your seat belts friends. Prepare for departure. Aeroplane is ready to blast off into discoville with a fuel tank filled to the brim with funk and groove. Didn’t know you could operate machinery with solely funk and groove?! It’s never too late to learn something new.

 

On the real though, this guy has been one of the most consistent disco house producers in the scene. Once a duo, but now the reigns have been taken by Vito and he’s holding his own quite well. The other guy split off and formed The Magician…you may have heard of him. Vito’s remixes and mixes are something we always can count on to be extremely special. Now we get to see him in the snow on the beautiful lands of Tahoe!

 

Vito is headlining THE IGLOO stage on Monday night, but he’s also playing an afterparty on a boat with Snakehips that same night!!! Everything I love. Get tickets to that here.

 

 

Justin Timberlake – Sui & Tie (Aeroplane Remix)

Back in June, Slaptop released his first original track, ‘Sunrise’. Ever since that day, he’s been turning heads all over the circuit thanks to his summery yet deep funk-house. The rise of Slaptop was definitely timed perfectly, but his hard work since then is what has earned him a spot at Snowglobe 2014.

 

With several remixes and a couple of originals to his name, Slaptop has proven he’s got a unique sound that’s bound to get you warmed up as the sun sets on Sierra (NYE | Wednesday @ 5:15pm). Come get loose with us.

 

Slaptop – Distraction

 

Slaptop – Sunrise

 

ZHU – Faded (Slaptop Remix)

Portland, Oregon’s Emancipator is a trip-hop sensation. His ethereal productions are usually accompanied by orchestral and tribal instruments when he plays live. Lucky for us, his SnowGlobe performance will feature the ensemble! It’s the type of music that was literally made to be heard in a woodsy environment like that of Tahoe. This kind of music under the stars is going to be hard to beat.

 

Emancipator – Diamonds

 

Emancipator – Minor Cause

2014 has been a breakout year for TeamSupreme’s Djemba Djemba. He threw one of the hardest sets we saw at HARD Summer. If you’re looking for a high energy, sporadic, and all-around ridiculously fun party, then we suggest you share his energy on Tuesday night.

 

He sticks mostly to an 808 foundation of heavy trap, high-hats, jersey club, and jungle. As a precursor, you should expect a mosh here and there. Or you can come join the one we’ll be starting.

 

Banks – Fall Over (Djemba Djemba Remix)

 

RL Grime – Core (Djemba Djemba Remix)

 

Destructo – Dare You 2 Move (Djemba Djemba Remix)

Tahoe’s annual NYE festival SnowGlobe sees its return this year with their best lineup yet. Yes, I said it…the BEST. I know it’s a young festival, but just look. From top to bottom, the bill is filled with forward thinking newcomers and established pioneers of future sounds.

 

Of the upcoming talent, I’m probably most excited to see New York’s BRANCHEZ. With influences in Jersey Club, Hip Hop, and Future Beats, this dude has made a name for himself with his thoughtful, feel-good remixes. My favorites are below. Click all three and they’ll pop up in our playlist for easy listening.

 

He plays Saturday at 6PM in the Sierra Tent. Come bounce with us.

 

What So Not – High You Are (Branchez Remix)

Branchez – Truth

Rihanna – Stay (Branchez Bootleg)
