While it might be warming up in most spots preparing for festival season, up North in Kamloops in British Columbia, it's still a snowy, white wonderland, just the way Snowbombing likes it.
Snowbombing Canada has returned for its second edition with an eclectic mix of talent including headliners like ODESZA and Gorgon City and top-notch supporting acts like Justin Martin, Billy Kenny, Troyboi, Felix Da Housecat and Swiss and South African talent, Nora En Pure, who joins us for a quick sneak peek in a playlist she's curated ahead of the festival to get you in the mood for a romantic weekend away in the snow.
"This playlist is a mix of groovy and deep melodic tracks that should take you on a journey through my world," Nora explains.

Eelke Kleijn 'Home'
DJ Shimza 'Secret Melodies'
"'Secret Melodies' is one of my newest discoveries, I really love that track and it reminds me of my home South Africa and I am sure it will bring some heat up in the cold mountains."
Gorgon City 'Primal Call'
"'Primal Call' has been a club anthem for some months and has the power to bring enormous energy. It will sound great under the open sky."
Milk & Sugar 'Music Is Moving' (Nora En Pure Remix)
"My remix of 'Music Is Moving' was released some time ago and I still enjoy playing it from time to time, as it's a groovy one that always makes people dance."
Cristoph 'Feel' feat. Jem Cooke
Mambo Brothers 'Momento'
Nora En Pure 'Sphinx' (Alternative Mix)
Fort Arkansas 'Anthem No. 3' (Croatia Squad & Me & My Toothbrush Remix)
"Continuing with groove, 'Anthem No.3' is an absolute funky piece that I love playing when the crowd is up for it."
Sugarstarr feat. Alexander 'Hey Sunshine' (Who Knows Edit)
SHMN 'Absolution' feat. Jinadu
"'Absolution', instead, is a deep one. The stunning piano and vocal usually create great tension and will stay in your mind even after the set."
The Tribe Of Good 'Loving You Baby' (Weiss Remix)
Nora En Pure 'Trailblazer'
"'Sphinx' and 'Trailblazer' are my most recent releases and show some very different sides of Nora En Pure and I feel very connected with both of them. While 'Sphinx' is quite euphoric and amazing to play at festivals, 'Trailblazer' goes more underground and brings out more melancholic feelings – both of them are still a definite highlight for me to play to crowds."
