Local support from Pile Palace royals Beav and Bosty!
MARBS (Desert Hearts)
Having grown up in Southern California with the now notoriously known motley crew called Desert Hearts, Marbs, an artistic kid, was primarily influenced by legends like Pink Floyd and Tool, while also listening to underground hip hop, reggae, and rock, displaying his no holds barred love for all genres from an early age. Flash forward to San Francisco's Love Fest, art cars roaming the city, house music spilling from speakers, and Marbs’ musical tastes were forever changed thanks to ruler of the house music game and party guru, Lee Burridge.
After years of djing the San Diego, LA, and Burning Man party circuits, the Desert Hearts crew took it upon themselves to throw their own kind of party. One built on love, acceptance, and strictly, House and Techno, their 2012 one time gathering of 200 people in the Mojave (the coldest one ever, we swear!!) has turned into one of the most talked about and adored boutique festivals in the US. None of which could be possible without Marbs, lovingly coined, "Papa Bear", he is truly the backbone of the project behind the scenes, where he runs most of the logistics with a steady hand and a humble heart. He’s easily one of the nicest guys on the planet and is the most modest of the crew, which is insane given his endless barrage of talents beyond his musical endeavors. While Desert Hearts catapults successfully into the scene as a major player through their twice yearly festival, touring internationally throwing parties under the moniker City Hearts, and launching a (free!) record label, Marbs continues to hone his production skills and also blows the art game out of the water, hand drawing all of the label’s artwork and inspiring tattoo artists everywhere.
Marbs’ musical talents and humble dj presence commands any dance floor with his sounds of mystical darkness and whimsical tribal rhythms; the night sky is the limit for this King of Darkness. With a sound like no other, a heart of gold, and a determination matched by few, Marbs is sure to lead this movement of love until the very happy end.
EVAN CASEY (Lost Dimensions/Desert Hearts)
Known for his curation of dark, twisted and high energy journeys, Evan Casey, now a Los Angeles resident, has been an exciting part of the west coast festival and underground club scene. A long time member and resident DJ of the fast rising Desert Hearts family, he has played a major role in bringing the darker sounds to clubs and festivals. With influences ranging from techno to progressive to minimal, he has developed a sound leaving dance floors with heavy, lasting emotion. For him, it is all about the experience shared, the impact of sounds taking us on spacial journeys, and getting completely lost even if just temporarily in the music. His constant digging and unveiling of cutting edge tracks reflect his evolving taste and desire to share the things that push his own life experience. Both as a selector and as a fan, the late night is a special time for Evan, and any who see him will agree, it is when his musical statements have the greatest impact on a dance floor.
In beautiful contrast to his dark, heavy sounds, he constantly connects to everyone in the community with love, positive energy and smiles. Not only is the musical experience something special, but his character is truly felt full circle when you get time with Evan, always ready with a hug. Known for his presence in black when behind the decks, it is never long before we see a massive smile on his face as he delivers an intense ride of sound for everyone to jump onto. There is a massive amount of momentum behind him at the moment, after big performances at large scale festivals, lots of time in studio curating his mix series and writing future releases, and just his overall loving, positive nature that is contagious to be around. There is a lot to be excited about in regards to his future; so head into the Lost Dimension and enjoy the trip as he expands on his vision of connecting through the experience of sonic depth and darkness.
