A resident of Canada's legendary Shambhala Festival for more than 14 years, his sets in the mythic Fractal Forest have become an integral part of many peoples' yearly pilgrimage to the bass paradise.
A renowned DJ and producer, Stickybuds creates community wherever he goes – reflected in the inviting, warm environment he creates on a dancefloor and in his countless musical collaborations with an incredible array of other DJs, producers, MCs and live musicians. His 2017 track “Clap Ya Hands Now!” created with New Zealand funk-dealer K+Lab, smashed down the barrier between the west coast underground and the mainstream after it was featured in promotions for a trailer of the blockbuster film Spiderman: Homecoming. Fuelled by a relentless drive and passion for art, Stickybuds has been hard at work on his debut full-length album, Take A Stand. Released July 20 on Westwood Recordings, Take A Stand is Stickybuds at his funky best, determined to get people dancing while keeping conscious of the world around. It's a delicate balance that only the most skilled of artists ever master and few in the world of electronic music have managed to consistently keep. A palpable passion for keeping an eye tuned to social ills while maintaining a dedication to deep, heavy funk, makes Stickybuds one of those rare artists.
His immense and diverse talents have led to Stickybuds being invited to rock dancefloors across North America, Europe and beyond, including stops at some of the worlds biggest festivals like Glastonbury, Burning Man, Breakfest, Envision, Boomtown, Rainbow Serpent and more. It doesn't matter if you're rocking out with your headphones on a bus, dancing in your living room or surrounded by hundreds of other groove-seekers, Stickybuds is guaranteed to get you rocking and funking.
