This summer he made his debut at Hï Ibiza supporting Fisher, amongst several other Ibiza shows, and he has just released his latest “Lunar” EP on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Rose Avenue imprint.
We checked in with him to grab his Top 10 Burning Man themed tracks. Listen to the music and read what he had to say about the tracks below.
Aaaron, Decker – Tranquility
“I first heard this track at Burning Man, and it was one of those songs that just grabs you right away. Everytime I listen to it, I’m taken back to this epic sunset at The Playa.”
Jimi Jules – Burning
“I played this track right as they were burning the man last year. It was the absolute perfect match as well of vibe. For days after, my crew and I couldn’t stop humming it.”
Corolay, Colyn – Blinded (Colyn Remix)
“To me, this track embodies the Burning Man sunrise. It’s by my good friend, Colyn. I think its melody and vocals are just off the charts.”
RÜFÜS DU SOL – Devotion
“Devotion makes people feel happy and makes them dance. this track by my friends RÜFÜS DU SOL is wonderful like most of his songs.”
Adam Port, Alan Dixon, Keinemusik – Forms of Love
“For me, Burning Man is all about love – love and respect for others. And there’s no better track to define that feeling than this one. Last year, when Keinemusk played it, it was such a magical and emotional moment.
Royksopp, Alison Goldfrapp, &ME – Impossible (&Me remix)
“This was my go-to song last year as I roamed The Playa.”
Arodes – Butterflies
“I just dropped this song on my first EP, ‘Lunar’, last Friday. I first tried it out at Burning Man last year, and I have this super special memory of playing it at The Fluffy Cloud during a sandstorm. It was amazing.”
Bicep – Just
“I stumbled upon this masterpiece my first year at Burning Man. I remember I was on an art car, crossing The Playa, I heard this track from a camp. The tune was so captivating that I just ran to that party, following the sound.”
Guy Gerber & Puff Daddy – Tourist Trap (Jamie Jones “For Ryan” Remix)
“I’m a big fan of how Guy meshed the vocals with the instrumental. It’s unique. The first time I heard it was at Kazbah, and we couldn’t stop dancing to it”
Arodes, Moojo – Reborn
“Last year, this was one of the most-played tracks by artists there. I wrapped up Burning Man at Kazbah, playing B2B with Yulia Niko and Kimonos at sunrise. It was this unreal moment of connection and fun with everyone there.”
