If you were to crack open a fortune cookie in the house of Shiba San, doubtless it would mention the recent release of his EP Fearless with Green Velvet. Such a thing keeps Shiba San busy. Leading up to his Countdown set, we were able to secure his 20 for ‘17 for your joy and amusement.
“20 for ‘17?” you ask. Well. It’s a slam-bam series of hot takes—what he loved and what he loathed in the year that was: 2 0 1 7.
But first, what can we look forward to in 2018?
In the new year, I plan on releasing a lot of new music through my label, Basement Leak. And I’ll be touring the globe, with some very special stops along the way! I have really great merchandise coming out in 2018, too.
Whether you choose to think of it as the end of this year or the beginning of the next, Countdown is the family favorite as far as celebratory throwdowns go. What does Mr. San have in store for us?
It’s no secret that Insomniac events are the best, and the crowds are always very fun. I’m excited to start 2018 doing what I love to do—there’s no better way to ring in the New Year than to celebrate with my fans and music.
Sound that gong, and let’s drop it!
