Good Morning Mix: Bliss out with Tycho’s sunrise set at Burning ManTycho Burning Man 2018

The aftermath of 2018’s edition of Burning Man has left burners with audio relics reminiscent of past times. One of those is Tycho‘s sunrise set from the Black Rock desert on August 30. It’s everything fans would expect from Scott Hansen and is padded with stretching ambiance, downtempo percussion, and soothing melodies. When thinking of Tycho, sunrise set at Burning Man fits the comparison. The relaxing set is an exploration of sounds and slow-paced rhythms that don’t fit the typical EDM night scene, making it a perfect morning mix.

Relive Diplo’s many Burning Man 2018 sets, including his b2b with Flume [Watch]Diplo Burning Man2

Burning Man is no average festival, and as such, the desert-based event warrants no average sets.

“I’m guilty of getting lazy and keeping some of the same routine and playing [the] same songs,” Diplo wrote in a recent Instagram post that contained ten clips from the DJ’s various sets over the course of the weekend. “But at BM I get to play records for the first time, bring back old records, improvise, connect with old friends, find new energy, do amazing back to back sets,” Diplo continued.

Diplo delivered a multitude of sets that allowed the LSD constituent to break with his standard MO across various Burning Man stages — including the no name camp, camp jou jou, the 747, and the church, among others. Instead, they got to watch him live as he shuffled through his library to drop some heat that rivaled even the temps of Black Rock City.

“…creating a vibe w friends and random people riding bikes around you is some of the moments that make me feel like DJing is still one of the greatest jobs in the world. And I’m so lucky,” Diplo concludes the post. Swipe through Diplo’s Instagram collage to relive some of the producer’s liveliest moments at Burning Man 2018.

If you have time to swipe – here are a couple of sets I played at Burning Man. My job is usually make songs that you hope people can dance too and to go out and play lot of sets every weekend . As you can imagine even that gets tiring . I’m guilty of getting lazy and keeping some of the same routine and playing same songs .. but at BM I get to play records for the first time bring back old records . Improvise .. connect with old friends find new energy .. do amazing back to back sets .. find random art cars to pull up get lost in some lights and find songs I never heard before . Just creating a vibe w friends and random people riding bikes around you is some of the moments that make me feel like DJing is still one of the greatest jobs in the world . And I’m so lucky .. thank you to robot heart .. the church . No name camp . Camp question mark . Camp jou jou. Bounce art car . The 747. Bunk

bed . The Christina The sol riser and everyone else .. especially to @flumemusic and @simihaze and @richmedina for rocking with me

Weekend Rewind: Skrillex and Diplo bring Jack Ü to Burning Man [Stream]

Weekend Rewind: Skrillex and Diplo bring Jack Ü to Burning Man [Stream]Skrille Diplo Jack U Burning Man Dancing Astro

It has been a long four years since Jack Ü‘s heyday and EDM seems to move much faster nowadays. Now Diplo manages to sprout a new supergroup every few months, but his original side project team up with Skrillex was a particularly fun moment for dance music. The two superstar buddy DJ’s make a meal out of their short lived partnership, roping in headlining slots across the world, a Madison Square Garden affair, halftime performances, and of course a legendary performance at Burning Man. Skrillex and Diplo brought a special Playa-primed version of their Jack Ü collaboration to Camp Questionmark, and of course an unforgettable two-hour back-to-back set ensued.

Ah, the summer of 2014 — a simpler time. A few months prior, the two co-headlined Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Skrillex was just months off of his debut LP Recessand Diplo was dominating the airwaves with “Express Yourself.” Everytime Jack Ü hit the decks it was a party. It was an amusing slice in time for dance music, so with this year’s edition of Burning Man now drawing to a close, a revisit to one of Jack Ü’s most memorable outings is certainly in order.

Diplo and Flume’s joint appearance won’t be the only exciting performance at Black Rock City this year. ZHUSkrillex, Seven Lions and more will also take the decks at Burning Man, with Skrillex slowly revamping his presence on the events circuit as the year winds down.

With people currently flocking to the Nevada desert for this year’s iteration of the event, expect a number of additional high profile artists to spring up at Burning Man too.

Burning Man to unveil heat reflective NASA space blanket art installation at 2018 edition

Burning Man to unveil heat reflective NASA space blanket art installation at 2018 editionHttps Hypebeast.com Image 2018 07 Burning Man Giant Nasa Space Blanket Installation 1

Renowned for its avant-garde art installations, Burning Man will maintain its perch on the cutting edge of 3D artistry this year. The 2018 edition of the Black Rock Desert based event will see festival organizers and and installation architect Sasha Shtanuk collectively unveil a “10,000 square meter reflective silver NASA space blanket” comprised of 3,350 ultralight polyester NASA space blankets.

The blankets will routinely shift shapes, creating an undulating visual effect comparable to the movement of oceanic waves. The installation will additionally offer respite from the high desert temperatures, given the piece’s ability to reflect up to 97 percent of radiated heat through the blanket’s metallic sides.

Shtanuk projects that the installation will cost approximately $17,500 USD, and has newly launched an Indiegogo campaign to generate funds for the innovative yet costly project. All monies donated to the campaign will assist with expenses related to the purchasing and transportation of the NASA space blankets for use in the installation. Donate to the campaign, here.

Burning Man announces a 100-foot-tall disco ball, known as The Orb

Burning Man announces a 100-foot-tall disco ball, known as The OrbBurning Man Disco Ball 2018

Burning Man always proves to be a fascinating topic, as thousands of people from around the world strip away their normal lives and enter into the Playa. The theme of this year’s festival, the first since its founder Larry Harvey’s passing, is derived from Isaac Asimov’s landmark 1950 sci-fi work, I, Robot. Each year, inventive new art installations bring together Burning Man’s larger-than-life theme, from Boeing jet nightclubs to flamethrower scorpion cars, and this year will be no different.

Word has it that a giant 100-foot-tall mirror ball, known as The Orb, will be making its first appearance in the Nevada desert at this year’s burn. The structure was created by a team of Danish architects led by Bjarke Ingels and Jakob Lange, who together created a 30-ton inflatable — yes, inflatable — disco ball.

“The ORB is a mirror for earth lovers – reflecting the passing daytime, evolving life, and other art works beneath it – A new planet to sci-fi fans, a wayfinder for travellers or just a huge disco ball to those who love a good party. Visible from most of The Playa, it will help Burners navigate the desert and find way. At night, the ORB will blend entirely into its surroundings and become part of the desert. The ORB is a tribute to mother earth and human expression – designed to easily inflate and deflate, leaving no trace on the Playa.”

Diplo’s 2017 Robot Heart set at Burning Man set surfaces

People normally associate Burning Man with a crowd of happy-go-lucky hippies losing themselves to art and debauchery in the desert. However, the crowd goes far beyond its stereotype, with a plethora of celebrities, techies, and other intriguing characters popping by Black Rock City for a taste of the action.

Diplo is one such artist one wouldn’t expect to be a regular at Burning Man, which usually hosts acts known in the transformational circuit. The EDM megastar and Mad Decent owner was in fact invited by the institutional Robot Heart camp to play their grounds during their 10th anniversary celebration in 2017, and the result might surprise die hard fans.

Rather than pumping the deep playa full of trap and pop offerings, Diplo showed off his true DJing skills with a diverse set filled with eclectic, world-beats-inspired electronica, disco, and deep house cuts. Its mellow, warm atmosphere feels like the sonic version of a morning coffee; energizing, comforting, and smooth.

Beat drops & hook ups: new survey identifies the most ‘promiscuous’ music festivals

This post was originally published on this site

A new survey conducted by Tickpick sought to evaluate the hookup culture of the festival scene, and as the findings indicate, it’s thriving.

Tickpick collected self-reported information from 1,050 people from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk about their sexual activity at music festivals. The statistics revealed 50.2% of festival goers to be open to a “weekend fling,” meaning that the odds of finding a temporary rave bae in the crowd are very likely to be in the favor of those seeking one. 33.6% of attendees reported having sex at a music festival.

Camping festivals Electric Forest, Bonnaroo, and Burning Man ranked as the top three most popular music festivals for sex, with 30.2%, 27.3%, and 25.2% of ticket holders experiencing a sexual encounter at each event, respectively.

Tickpick’s data determined Burning Man and Electric Forest to be the top two music festivals for oral sex, with 28.2% of Burning Man attendees engaging in oral activity, and 20.9% of Electric Forest attendees following suit. Electric Daisy Carnival came in third at 18.7%. 46.4% of festival goers stated that they’d had oral sex with someone they’d just met at one of the listed festivals.

A daring 3.8% of survey participants said that they’d had sex in a festival dance tent. Surprisingly enough, a dance tent was the area that saw the least sex: port-a-potties saw comparatively more action, with 9.4% of attendees getting it on by the toilets. 15.3% reported doing so in a crowd, while 7.2% got hot and heavy backstage. The two most popular locations for festival sex were the tent, and the car.

As the survey identified, “face down a** up that’s the way we like to f*ck” isn’t just a favorite song to shout among festival crowds: doggy style turned out to be the most popular position of festival hookups, with 43.9% citing doggy style as their preferred festival position.

This post was originally published on this site

For those who can’t make it to Black Rock City, Nevada to witness the majestic art installments of Burning Man, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C. is hosting an exhibition in their Renwick Gallery to bring art from the playa into the city. The exhibit, called “No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man,” will run through Jan. 21, 2019.

Still can’t make it to the nation’s capital this year? Thanks to Intel, who is partnering with the Smithsonian, the art of Burning Man can now come straight to you. In an effort to accelerate digitizing its 157 million-piece collection, the joint project will allow museum attendees to virtually wander the site of the annual Burning Man festival.

On-site patrons will now be able to don VR headsets and visit the Black Rock Desert in Android Jones Deep Playa Experience, brought to you by artist Android Jones and his immersive media company, Vision Agency. Back in the real world, visitors will be able to view everything from sculptures and art to costumes and jewelry that came from the festival — all without getting caked in the desert’s infamous dust.
