In March, we hosted our first 12-hour marathon with the indelible beat-serving band of dust-kicking miscreants, Desert Hearts. Their fearless leader, Mikey Lion, closed things out on The Roof in textbook fashion, dropping disco-tinged heaters, deep and soulful classics, and low-end fueled tech house. It was an absolute gas, so much so that we decided to bring the man with the best hats in house music back to headline. So, on June 24, we’re going late into the night with the one-and-only Mikey Lion at Manhattan’s newest megaclub, MUSICA.

Mikey’s positive energy and penchant for good vibes house music are a blessing to dance music culture. Maybe it’s because he always carries the wide-eyed memory of his first immersive house music experience. He fell in love with the rave during Daft Punk’s historic Pyramid unveiling at Coachella 2006. Or maybe it’s because he’s been soaking up DJ culture since buying his first turntables at age 14. Whatever the reason, Mikey’s joyous DJ sets and dusty funky beats have put him at the forefront of a family of thousands that proudly follow the Desert Hearts motto of “House, Techno, Love.”

In 2012 he co-founded Desert Hearts, a party crew that grew from throwing renegade bacchanals deep in the Mojave Desert to a global movement that encompasses its annual campout, a laundry list of sweaty club shows around the world, and two record labels: Desert Hearts Records and Desert Hearts Black.

For Mikey, it’s 100% about the love of community and making the world more positive through house music. It’s an ethos that shines through in his catalog of psychedelic beats and basslines. From the transcendent and introspective “Through The Fog” (with Justin Martin) to the syncopated acid madness of “This Is The Beat,” Mikey proves that he’s an industry leader in philosophy and sound.

Mikey is fresh off a slew of landmark gigs, including rocking the infamous DoLab stage at Coachella for weekend two (a full circle moment considering where his roots lie) and dropping a set for John Summit’s Off The Grid at The Caverns. We’re excited to have him back in New York for what’s guaranteed to be a memorable night of funky grooves and booty-shaking moves.
