After a scorching success at the rugged natural fortress of Masada in September, Day Zero will return to the mystic jungle of Tulum on January 10. Nestled in lush flora and fauna and beneath a star-spangled sky, the event will embark on an eighteen-hour musical voyage featuring some of the world’s most exhilarating selectors and live acts. 

Several powerhouses will be making their Day Zero debuts, including GRAMMY-winning Dubfire, Berlin heroine Ellen Allien, Keinemusik’s &Me, house and techno legend Luciano, minimal giant Priko and eclectic duo Concret. 

It’s a reunion for the Crosstown Rebels family, as the bill features Art Department, Bedouin, Francesca Lombardo, Serge Devant, Tibi Dabo and Yulia Niko. Fellow Crosstown member Ae:there will be providing a portion of the live music, while local legend and sitar maestro Sidartha Siliceo will return with his futuristic rendition on classical northern Indian sounds. 

Returning to the series are dynamic duo Audiofly and Black Coffee, along with the mastermind of the event himself, Damian Lazarus. 

Since its inception on the final day of the Mayan Calendar in 2012, Day Zero has celebrated the rebirth of ancient tradition with forward-thinking electronic music. The event invites you to an experience reminiscent of Burning Man, as the event empowers sustainable practices, commitment to human connection and cultural connectivity. 

The enchanting environment thrives off a ritualistic energy and bond with the local community, creating a total immersion of the senses. Tickets are on sale now via Resident Advisor.

Desert Hearts Releases Family & Friends Volume 3

Desert Hearts Releases Family & Friends Volume 3

The Family & Friends series from Desert Hearts Records is an ode to what the Desert Hearts crew does best: house, techno, deep house, and tech-house. Riddled with label stalwarts old and new, this collection of songs samples exactly what you’d hear at a Desert Hearts party.

The third installment of the Family & Friends series is comprised of 19 tracks that represent every shade of Desert Hearts. With artists Andrea Henneberg, Sacha Robotti, Cut Snake, NiQW, Sydney Blu, Rich Pinder, and many more, there is no shortage of fresh tracks on the collection.

The opener is a song from Andrea Henneberg, aptly titled “Desert Hearts.” It begins with a robotic voice repeating, “Desert Hearts,” which then proclaims, “Let’s rock that shit.” It’s a fun start to this third volume and sets the listener up for the rest of the collection, in which, of course, the artists are rocking that shit. Crank the volume and enjoy.
