Desert Hearts, an intimate underground gathering, record label, and community driven by ambassadors of “House, Techno, & Love,” finally descends upon the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation in Southern California for its anticipated 2 year anniversary festival this weekend. With an outstanding lineup of likeminded artists including Tiefschwarz, Fur Coat, Avatism, Shaun Reeves, Francesca Lombardo, Amirali, the Desert Hearts crew (Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, Porkchop, & Deep Jesus), and an array of local favorites, amongst others, this “sanctuary from the ordinary” and its attendees (we’ll be there!) are set for a vibey weekend of non-stop dance music pumping through a Funktion-One.

In addition to the musical offerings, Desert Hearts will host a wide variety of art including live painting, interactive art, sculptures, and more, while also featuring fire dancers, other performance artists, yoga classes, workshops, and a healing village. To top it all off, a handful of theme camps like Music Savages and Desert Hearts‘ own Pile Palace will be present to round out the festival’s amenities. Intimate events of this magnitude are hard to come by, so this weekend will be very special for those who are able to experience it first hand.

All details aside, I’ve been trying to go to a Desert Hearts festival for over a year, and it’s finally happening. I’ve been set on going for a while as I’ve heard only great things, but after having an incredible time at City Hearts LA, my decision was further solidified. Hope to see you out there!

Limited pre-sale tickets are still available here (until 5pm PST tomorrow), and if you need some more convincing, I’ve included a fan-made recap video of their Spring festival, the full lineup/set times, the festival map, and the Desert Hearts Edition guest mix from Mikey Lion after the jump.

The Venezuelan duo Fur Coat have spent the last few years climbing the rungs of the underground ladder and are firmly planted at the top. Since the release of their 2012 anthem ‘You & I‘, the duo has shifted gears from sing-along deep house tunes to chugging, techno burners as reflected by their most recent Crosstown Rebels release, U Turn. After a strong summer touring clubs like DC10 in Ibiza and Treehouse in Miami, Fur Coat gave our friends over at Boomrat an inside look into their secret weapons. Stream the entire playlist below.

On July 30th, the spectacular Mexican duo, Climbers, released their most recent EP, 2 Come Back – the second release put out on the Los Angeles label, Culprit, after debuting their first EP back in May. “2 Come Back” is a great Deep House track and a product of an obvious industriousness in the studio from Jay Blakk and Kiko Deal. The EP features the original as well as 2 remixes from fellow South American up and comers, Fur Coat, and Hot Creations legend, Miguel Campbell, providing for one hell of a release. Today, the guys have put together a promo mix to accompany 2 Come Back, and it’s just the right temperature to get you through this Wednesday. Don’t sleep on these guys, folks. √+
