Hippy technoise from the playa 2013. One of the most unusual sets I’ve heard from Robot Heart.

I had mentioned some of the live Burning Man 2013 sets on our Bottom Forty Facebook Group, but I wanted to highlight one that’s been making the otter-rotations on my digital devices lately.

UK’s Elite Force (aka the lovely Simon Shackleton) is one of the playa’s big superstar DJs, usually tearing down DISTRIKT or one of the other large venues with one of his famous barnstorming sets usually comprising of his own personal edits of both club classics and current bangers. This was the closing set for Tuesday’s DISTRIKT day party, and it’s clear that he’s not only spent a long time preparing his own edits for his set but also using a large degree of harmonic mixing to keep all of the tracks in compatible keys. The intro sampling Queen’s “Bohemian Rhaphsody” is especially appropriate to the experience of the desert: “Is this real life? Or is this fantasy?” Great stuff and really got me moving. read more …

His music features odd, trippy experimental textures and lo-fi percussion with house, techno and psychedelic edges. read more …
