Desert Hearts Records Releases Family & Friends Vol. 1 Compilation
Featuring Latmun, Andreas Henneberg, Eyes Everywhere, Fritz Carlton, RYBO, Kevin Anderson, Treavor Moontribe + more
Desert Hearts has emerged as a platform for growth for the West Coast House and Techno community since its inception in the Mojave just four years ago. What began as a ragtag Desert gathering has evolved into an escape for dancefloor devoteés lead by a collective of producers with a keen ear for the sounds of tomorrow. Today, Desert Hearts Records celebrates their tight knit crew with the release of their inaugural Family & Friends Compilation featuring a collection of tracks by artists who exist very near to the beating heart of this musical and cultural movement.
Family & Friends Volume 1 offers fans a stellar assemblage of House and Techno sounds from around the world. The compilation is kicked off with the help of the red hot Latmun, who has made a run for global stardom since making his North American debut at the Desert Hearts Spring Festival this year. Berlin based Andreas Henneberg follows up his Spring release on the label with another goofy, finely produced bomb fit for the hands in the air . The compilation also ushers East Coast House duo Eyes Everywhere into the Desert Hearts family, who round out the release with a peak time stomper. Family & Friends Vol 1 also features a slew of Desert Hearts favorites like Fritz Carlton, Lubelski, Treavor Moontribe, RYBO, Kevin Anderson, Kell Bill, JTZ, Buala, and Tripsy.
In label boss Mikey Lion’s own words…”I’m really excited to put out our first Desert Hearts Records Family & Friends Vol. 1. Alongside favorite international DH veterans like Andreas Henneberg and Latmun, the compilation really highlights some of our best friends who’ve been the backbone of the Desert Hearts movement for years. They’ve been putting in work for years and this is their introduction to the world. I’m so proud of every single artist on this compilation and can’t wait for the world to hear what they’re all about.”
Led by Mikey Lion, Desert Hearts is a collaboration between San Diego based DJs Lee Reynolds, Marbs, and Lion’s younger brother, Porkchop, along with the creative mind of Christopher Kristoff. The crew has travelled throughout California’s deserts, moving through mountainous peaks to untapped indian reservations — the boys are always searching out unique landscapes that inspire. This mantra also pervades their label showcases, which have completely transformed warehouses and venues across North America.
