Crescendoll - DISTRIKT Music - Ep. 198

Black Rock Desert, NV

I've been to 4 consecutive burns now, 2016 was my first. I've been blessed to play a number of sound camps and art cars, but I've always thought of DISTRIKT as one of the great whites, with a reputation that I’ve known about since before I made my first pilgrimage to the Playa. The hardworking and meticulous DISTRIKT team always provide a mystical experience for all of us dusty musically inclined burners, with a carefully curated lineup and grade A Funkworks sound. Like many DJs, I hoped to one day be given the opportunity to perform on this stage, and when I was asked to open the stage on Saturday morning at this year's Burn I was truly honored and stoked! I view the opener time slot as a challenging role that comes with a lot of responsibility and one that must be handled appropriately. I often have more opportunities for late-night sets so it was really exciting to step out of my usual zone and get to flex my chops with a daytime set! I drew on my memory of DISTRIKT over the years and felt inspired to bring to the table a different kind of opening set. I wanted to do something very minimal start to finish, but with a careful progression throughout my tale, covering different areas and emotions. Thank you DISTRIKT for giving me such a fun and unique opportunity, an experience I won't forget!

Live at Tropical Synergy NYE 2020

Somewhere in the desert...

"What do you call a haunting that you don't want to end? I didn't know if i had achieved salvation or if I needed an exorcism, and I was content with either fate. The hellfire queen of gutter techno had done it again." - Joe Giuliano

How to best describe the sweet delirium of Tropical Synergy NYE 2020? It's hard to put into words. The flow and progression of the night's music was beautiful, guttural, elevating, inspiring, unifying...
There was laughter, singing, celebration, emotion..."an all-night bacchanal". Together we danced away 2019 from dusk til dawn and well into the afternoon before our tired bodies forced us to lay down.

There was magic happening on that dance floor, we could all feel it. I felt it with such intensity while I was playing my music for everyone...I was in it and I truly felt that connection with the crowd from start to finish. I could not imagine a more beautiful moment to start the new decade off with.

Please enjoy this live set from our Tropical Synergy NYE 2020 event! <3
