As if the excitement for Enchanted Forest Gathering wasn’t already buzzing enough, here’s another reason to get excited. The set times have officially dropped – putting into perspective how truly massive this line up is – and Kalya Scintilla is playing a special sunrise set Saturday morning! This is good news, because bringing in the daylight is a specialty of his! To make things even better he was gracious enough to bless us with a special Enchanted Forest Gathering promo mix for our series. In fact it’s the seventh mix installment for the seventh year of the festival, which is pretty cool.
Going back in time to 2015 this incredible two hour set was recorded live in Portland during Kalya Scintilla’s fall Earth Heart Tour. It’s abounding with that tribal infused psydub we’ve come to love from Kalya, complete with cutting edge sound design and melodic live instrumentation. Kalya has been known to flirt with the line between organic and synthetic audio and this mix is case in point. I know he’s been working on new material and can only imagine how amazing his sunrise set will be next weekend.
Enchanted Forest Gathering 2017 will also play host to some other world renown artists such as Noisia, Opiuo, and Tipper‘s one and only California performance this summer. Grab tickets while you still can, I wouldn’t be surprised if it sells out.
