A Decadence Colorado Playlist
1. Walker & Royce
Walker & Royce, the Brooklyn based duo repping the labels: Dirtybird, Relief, W&O Street Tracks, Moda Black, Pets Recordings, Safer At Night, Crosstown Rebels and Glasgow Underground will surely offer a yummy set. Leaning on the sexier sounds of deep and tech house, Samuel Walker and Gavin Royce will get the booties moving and the smiles ensuing. Of course they offer pure techno and house as well. Enjoy one of their stable singles ‘Reaching’ as a free download and their Insomniac Track of the Day, ‘Bright Lights’.
2. Nora En Pure
We will be graced by the Switzerland native, Nora En Pure along her Polynesia Tour. After witnessing her sets and having the opportunity for an exclusive interview with her, we know Nora is pure fire with a heart of gold. Without a doubt, the energy she will be pumping with worldly instrumentation and raw bass lines is transcending. Be ready to enter the world of Nora En Pure, the finest in indie dance and deep house. Enjoy a tribal single ‘Roots’ off her recent future house EP, don’t look back (Enormous Tunes), a Spinnin’ Deep release ‘Tears In Your Eyes’ and her daybreak set at Tomorrowland.
3. Mikey Lion
Desert Hearts’ pride and joy, Mikey Lion will be in the house. Spinning tracks for the love club, you can count of Mr. Lion bringing your squad closer together. You guys will be holding hands, telling each other how beautiful you are and possibly even crying during his magical set. He will always bring that energy that brings your swag sky high! Enjoy a couple different sides to this big cat by listening and downloading for free his single with Bengal ‘Like That’ then his How To Love set.
4. Claude VonStroke
The Detroit local and Dirtybird Founder himself, Claude VonStroke will control the decks for what is sure to be a clean AF set. You can trust him to loop in the latest bangers in tech house that creates a super fun atmosphere full of wigglers and love. During his set, listen for his recent release ‘Walay’, but you never know he may even mix in some Rihanna.
5. Lee Reynolds
The London bred artist Lee Reynolds says: “My real role in Desert Hearts is more on a spiritual level, making sure we spread a positive message and do the right thing”. He has been conducting madness for over 25 years, making him the oldest performer at this year’s Decadence, but know just like wine, techno gets finer with age. Strap in for the wicked and wonky sonic adventure Reynolds will navigate. Get a taste of his unique style through his single ‘Up & Down’ and his set at Desert Hearts Festival.
