Joule DJ Set by Dersu

This mix is inspired by the incredible journey that was Burning Man 2015. It’s essentially a story, told through music, that begins slow and builds into a climactic late night dust storm, perched high on top of an art car named Joule.

It’s a thank you to the artists who influenced it: Acid Pauli, Oceanvs Orientalis, Goldcap, Sabo, Deep Jesus, Bedouin, Atish, Yokoo, the list goes on…

I fell in love with so many moments and was fueled by so many special people this year, whether it was Hugo dancing next to us on the top of Joule, or our new Brazilian friends from Sao Paulo greeting us after our set at Pink Mammoth, or our London friends who danced with us for hours at Salty’s, each and every one of you are a part of this set. You come in the form of horns, or flutes, or deep, eerie synth. You are beautiful, mysterious, and alive.

As you listen I truly hope you find yourself dancing, with your eyes closed, reminded of your own incredible journey…

Thank you so much for listening.
