6 Incredible Live Sets From Burning Man 2014
As the dust settles on what sounded like the best Burning Man to date, along comes a collection of incredible live mixes. With a jaw dropping 14 hours of music to get stuck into from Simon Shackleton, Funkagenda, All Good Funk Alliance, Kyle Cross, Genesis and Dj Three your weekend party music is pretty much catered for right here in one almighty electronic music lump.
This year was Simon Shackleton’s fifth year playing the sunrise set at the Nutz Camp. These sets which see him play for 6 hours have become more organic over the years and encourage Simon to dig deep into the world of deep, twisted and at the same time uplifting Electronic music, to find music that fits hand in hand with the spiritual dimension of the Playa. What we have here is a master class in track selection. Get settled in for a truly inspirational musical journey!
Funkagenda found himself at the Opulent Temple for this live set. An hour’s worth of some of the deepest, richest sounding Techno and Tech House sounds that would have kept the Burners stomping in the Playa dust for sure!
This is the first of two mixes that were recorded live from the Robot Heart camp and this one comes from All Good Funk Alliance. The set was streamed live as it was played and features some very excellent funky, soulful House music. Good Funk by name, good funk by nature!
Kyle Cross took himself to the very interestingly named Slut Garden for his set. Who knows what might go down there but one thing you can be sure of and that is that it sounds like one proper party. Kyle brings you a meaty selection of Electro, Bass infused Breakbeat in this one hour mix.
The Playa Surfers camp is where Genesis found herself for her live set. Assembling a set of funky and vocal Tech House Genesis must have got the Burners minds on fire with this one!
The second instalment from the Robot Heart camp comes from Dj Three. He took to the decks for his sunrise set and with the sublime Tech House on offer you can almost feel the sun creeping up on the horizon.
So there’s a large dose of Electronic based music for you all to delve into. From the sets posted it sounds like Burning Man is a party that needs to be seen to be believed.
