A Desert Hearts resident DJ and GDD™ homie hailing from San Diego, Kevin Anderson, has graced stages with the likes of Dixon, Tim Green, Kill Frenzy, Walker & Royce, and more. Described as a living party that manifests itself inside the music and vibe when he DJs, Kevin is now stepping up his production game with a brilliant debut release, the You’re Mine EP, on Desert Hearts Records. On the EP, he delivers two solo tracks and a collab with the Desert Hearts Records boss Mikey Lion, taking us on a trip through deep house with a gratifying touch of nostalgia. With a remix from YOBILL & RYBO rounding out the offering, Kevin‘s You’re Mine EP is a great addition to any music library. Purchase the EP on Beatport.

In celebration of the release, here are some words from Desert Hearts to put it in context – “Ever since their first event 2 years ago in the Mojave, Kevin Anderson has been one of the bread & butter Desert Hearts DJs. Known for taking his shirt off when the party hits critical mass, Kev Dawg loves to party and his vibe is never more apparent than on a Desert Hearts dance floor. We couldn’t be happier to see Kevin put out the sophmore release on Desert Hearts Records. House, Techno, & Love is what they’re all about, so jump head first, shirt off, into this release because it’s a groover.”

Catch Kevin Anderson live at Desert Hearts’ City Hearts LA this Friday, October 3rd.
