5d1fb8aa-eccb-4d5f-a5c1-975dbbdcd8da

Desert Hearts, a festival, event company, label, and crew, is undeniably one of the most exciting things to arise out of the underground over the past few years. Recently, they’ve been growing exponentially, as their house & techno festivals have built a strong reputation that has overflowed into major cities across the U.S. and abroad. Lucky for us, this has lead to more events like their “City Hearts” series that has become the 6-date Summer of Love 2015 tour featuring Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, Porkchop, Deep Jesus, and special guests.

This Friday, Los Angeles is in for a special treat as City Hearts LA will be taking place at the Belasco, and the crew will be pulling all the stops for their biggest offering in the city yet. Expect world-class house & techno pumping through a Funktion-One all night, art, fire spinning & performances, pile areas (from their Pile Palace Burning Man camp), and more.

Get in the mood with this Lonely Boy set from the Desert Hearts Spring Festival, and buy tickets for City Hearts LA here. See you there!

As a thank you for reaching 50k followers, oshi has put out his re-do of “heal you,” which is due out on his upcoming EP.

An infectiously catchy vocal sample drives the track forward as soaring synth chords and sparkling bass lines are paired with glitchy percussive arrangements. “heal you” is available as a free download, so get it here.
