Watch How Montell2099 Brought EDM To The Remote Mountains of Lake Alta
The most recent homecoming performance by Montell2099 was unlike any other. The well-known New Zealand DJ and producer performed in one of the country’s most picturesque settings while carrying a heavy load of drum and bass music.
On New Zealand’s south island, close to Queenstown, lies a body of water known as Lake Alta that is tucked away among The Remarkables mountain range. Given that the lake is a glacial lake, the area is primarily a skiing and ice-diving attraction.
Montell2099 found the tundra-like, icy environment to be an attractive place to establish a business. He was dwarfed by the enormous peaks and vast expanses of open space around him, yet he still made a statement with his music as he washed his career and hinted at what was to come.
During his brief set, Montell2099 let caution go to the breeze while performing songs like “Broken,” his most recent duet with Netsky. He also paved the way by giving a sneak peek at what is certain to be a highly anticipated collaboration with Dimension.
