The Village Sessions: Arlen Live at Shambhala 2013

There is not a better person to be able to translate the beauty that is the West Coast bass sound for Shambhala than Arlen. He is the man helming the ship that is PK San Francisco and from what we heard in his set from Shambhalala 2013, he has fallen in love with the music coming from down south. Arlen’s set is a stunning example of what west coast bass is. Pulled from all corners of the planet to craft a set that manages to balance itself brilliantly between genres, there is something about that sound that he’s tapped directly into which leaves you wishing you were out in the sun.

All You Need is Bass and PK Sound are proud to present The Village Sessions.  The best performances from The Village stage, recorded live at Shambhala 2013.
