Desert Hearts goes deep and dark with new sublabel, Desert Hearts BlackEvan Casey Marbs Credit 2nd Nature

Most know Desert Hearts as a fun-loving crew touting House, Techno, Love across the world. Crew members Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, and Porky often purvey a lighthearted, fun tech sound; but their fellow cohort Marbs has always maintained a deeper, more driving musical aesthetic. Together with Desert Hearts regular Evan Casey, the two have now manifested an entity fitting their collective mindset in Desert Hearts Black.

Desert Hearts Black will be a sublabel of Desert Hearts Records, meant “for those in our family who enjoy heavier, darker, more journey driven sounds,” according to Marbs. To capture this idea aurally, he and Evan Casey have tossed up a long-awaited single: “Torus,” their collaboration with Rinzen that is also part of an upcoming EP of the same name. The track has been rinsed to great success in all three of their sets for the past six-plus months, and it’s easy to see why; its psychedelically arranged melodies and pounding percussion send listeners straight into a different realm.

Those in LA will get the chance to celebrate the label launch in person through a special warehouse party in August where Thugfucker will also be a guest. More details are available here.

Rewind time with Porter Robinson’s sentimental ‘Worlds’ set at Second Sky [WATCH]

It’s safe to say that Porter Robinson‘s first go at a festival, Second Sky, was a glowing success. The two-day event touched down in Oakland on June 15 and boasted a star-studded lineup including his Shelter collaborator Madeon, Cashmere Cat, and even a surprise showing from Skrillex. Robinson also took opening slots on both days of the event under his Virtual Self moniker to encourage early entry and music discovery.

One of the biggest treats for those in attendance, however, was the revival of Porter’s Worlds live set. The set was more expressive and ethereal than ever, with the musician immersing himself fully into the vibrant performance. Worlds sets aren’t common these days on the performance circuit, since Robinson’s been taking the better part of the last couple years promoting his iconic new Virtual Self project.

Those who missed both the event and its live stream are in luck; the set has since been uploaded to multiple platforms for listening pleasure, and the Twitch stream is now available on YouTube. Those lucky enough to be present can also relive this singular experience that took place that fateful evening in Oakland.
