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

I know I talk about Lee Burridge a lot, but chiiiiiiiillld…I was running around Seattle’s Green Lake in the sunshine on Thanksgiving to this recently released sunrise mix from Robot Heart, Burning Man 2013, and was nearly having visual hallucinations.

Malmö, Sweden’s Minilogue, composed of Sebastian Mullaert and Marcus Henriksson, has been at it for a minute, creating fine techno from their city just across the channel from neighboring Copenhagen, Denmark. I love their take on techno, both the minimal, the earthy, the warm, and the oceanic. Lately, I’ve been puring some of their newer works (in remix form) into my mixes, but some classics remain, of which this is but a sample of their fine catalogue.
Robot Heart is my favorite deep techno roving art car on the playa at Burning Man, or pretty much anywhere. Hosting techno talent on the playa each year all week on their speaker-lined bus, their deep playa sunrise parties are the stuff of legend. In 2011, when my theme camp Conception took Flammable resident Karl Kamakahi to the playa for the first time, he returned Saturday morning around 10 am, dusty and wide eyed with wonder from an all night dance bender. When asked, he reported that Lee Burridge‘s sunrise set had just changed his life and was the most excited he’d been about music since he started DJing twenty years before. “One of the top memories of my life with the sound and the sun blending together as it rose over the ridge and on to the playa … Fucking AMAZING !!!” Burridge is a London DJ and playa superstar, and has recently released a remastered version of this 2011 set, which has become implanted in my phone as if it’s now in charge of the thing. read more …
