Fresh off their announcement of this year’s Desert Heart Festival dates, our favorite SoCal house and techno label is back with their annual Friends & Family release. In its fourth year, the compilation tackles the entire spectrum of the Desert Hearts sound and highlights many heavy-hitters.
This massive release features a few familiar names we’ve seen on the label and at past events, as well as a handful of fresh talent including Papa Lu – a talented producer/DJ out of San Francisco, Alan Nieves, Lex & Wood, and Lex Luca.
As the label explains it:
Featuring 19 tracks from incredible producers around the globe like Tini Gessler, Jesse Perez, Beth Lydi, and Alan Nieves; as well as a lot of our homegrown talents like Kevin Anderson, Mitch Dodge, and Memo Rex, our fourth annual Family & Friends compilation spans the entire spectrum of the Desert Hearts sound.
It’s been incredibly rewarding for us to see what we’ve built reach the far corners of the globe and become connected by the music we love so deeply. The tracks on here are phenomenal and we are proud af of everybody involved!
With that said, we hope you enjoy Family & Friends Vol. 4 as much as we enjoyed putting it together! Please share this sh!t as far and wide as possible!
