Desert Hearts Founder Mikey Lion Announces Debut LP with First Single, “Above the Clouds”

Since 2012, Desert Hearts has remained a fixture in the minds and imaginations of the West Coast house and techno scene. Earlier today, it’s colorful leader Mikey Lion announced the rollout of his debut LP, For the Love, with an uplifting new single, “Above the Clouds.”

Prior to 2012, Lion was living at home while trying to find his purpose in life. A psychedelic experience pushed him to kickstart Desert Hearts, which emerged as a key annual event in the underground dance community, an international touring DJ quartet and a successful record label. Under the banner of spreading love and community, it has helped spur a positive, fun-loving movement across the festival and club scenes.

“This album has been eight years in the making ever since we threw our very first Desert Hearts party back in 2012,” said Mikey Lion. “It’s a culmination of everything that I’ve learned, felt, and believed in over the years.”

For The Love comes out April 28 on Desert Hearts Records, and looks to convey the star-crossed, passionate journey of finding your calling.

Cassian Sends Listeners to the Stratosphere with Release of Laps

Last week, Cassian released "Laps", another testament to his keen sense of artistry and dedication to his vision. It's his fourth release under the RÜFÜS DU SOL backed label and is my favorite thus far. While his previous releases have more of a commercial appeal, which I have also really enjoyed, "Laps" takes us to a different plane. A sonic outer space so to speak.
