Three Things We Love: The Sounds of Burning Man Edition
The annual Burning Man counterculture festival in the Nevada desert ended one month ago, but some of us are still dusting off—and grooving on. With SoundCloud on Flipboard, the music of Burning Man (at least the wub-wub kind) is always just a flip away. Here are three of our favorite Black Rock City music-makers.
Robot Heart: Robot Heart is a truck outfitted with booming speakers and a giant heart-shaped â€œcageâ€ towering above. It might as well also have a magnetic center: no matter where it roams, people follow the twinkling tunes.
FreQ Nasty: Born Darin MacFadyen, FreQ Nasty is a breakbeat pioneer and Burning Man staple. Press play for fat basslines, heart-stopping squiggles and rhythms that could stop dancing as much as spur it on.
DJ RayChill: Squelchy, scrunchy, crunchy—this mega-watt electro is the handiwork of West Hollywood DJ RayChill. Her SoundCloud offering is small, but each mix is long and explosive. â€œBurnBabyâ€ is part one of her August 31 set on the art car Black Light Lounge.
