8 Incredible Live Sets From Burning Man 2016
A couple of years ago we put together an almighty post featuring 6 mixes from that years Burning Man and after a quick search of the internet, we tracked down 8 from this years desert party! On offer is a huge amount of music both in time and quality so lets get to it…
We quick things off with one of the most notorious stories of Burning Man 2016. The Funk Hunters got an invite from their good friend, The Festival Guy, who is one of the founders of ‘Camp Ego Trip‘, to play a set as Daft Punk, helmets n all! As massive fans of Daft Punk, the guys jumped at the chance and took to the stage to play a Daft Punk inspired set with Griz joining them with some live sax action. The whole thing was kept a tight knit secret and had everyone wondering if it actually was the French duo performing live, including mainstream media giants, Billboard. Clearly they played a blinder so give their mix a spin!

The Stanton Warriors kept numerous crowds entertained over the week long party and have chosen to give us all their set from the ‘Slut Garden‘. Because of the sensual surroundings of that particular installation, the guys decided to go in deep and dirty with a Bass heavy set of stripped back broken beats. Body rockin’ business!

Mayan Warrior is a superbly decked out art car that’s driven from Mexico to the playa each year. It’s hosted some truly talented DJ’s and a vast array of music that’s all smothered with dust and love. Out the of the 10 mixes posted from there, it was very hard to pick one as they’re all so breathtaking, but DJ Three‘s set is the one we’ve gone for and I’m sure it’ll be the perfect tempter to lead you on to the rest that lie in wait. Heady, heartfelt House music all night long.
