After releasing Bells & Whistle’s Hands EP just a couple of months ago, Desert Hearts Records delivers the tasteful, 2-track Sound Engineer EP from Orlando’s own Michael Rosa, along with remixes from Halo & Ché, Butane, and David Scuba.  Having attended and played last year’s Desert Hearts Spring festival, Rosa mentioned that this psychedelia-drenched, tech-house EP “truly is a Desert Hearts inspired release,” and it was created “with the 70 hour experience in mind,” which is clearly apparent upon first listen. It’s a dance floor-centric offering that’s sure to ignite clubs and festivals far and wide.

In conjunction with the release, we have the pleasure of premiering David Scuba’s rendition of the title track, “Sound Engineer.” The Superfreq boss has transformed the track with his own techy touch, using a new groove, subtle percussive accents, sound effects, and pulsating synth work for a tripped-out remix. Check out the remix above, listen to the whole EP below, and read more about Michael Rosa in our Q&A where he discusses how his new EP came together, his new party, Rabbithole, how he linked up with Desert Hearts, and more after the jump.
