Mikey Lion Presents - The Lion's Den (Open to Close Set)
Yo Yo! What's up guys,
I feel like lately I’ve been playing a lot of short, back to back sets with the Desert Hearts Crew that while extremely fun, often leave me wanting more from a personal growth perspective. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE playing gigs with my brother, my fake dad, and my best friend, but when I first started playing club gigs, I cut my teeth playing 6 hours sets once a week in a side room in Barcelona on Wednesday nights. While these gigs weren’t the most bangin’ parties, they taught me everything I know about DJing. They gave me room to take chances, flex what I’m feelin’, and dive into a ton of different genres throughout the night. This is the type of DJing that I truly love and it’s about that time I get back to my roots and explore the versatility that I feel’s been lacking from my hour long sets.
When Audio asked me if I wanted to play on their new Funktion-One sound system, I was thrilled and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create a long, intimate journey through music I love. This will be the first open to close set I’ve played in 8 years and I hope you’ll join me as I take you deep into The Lion’s Den to share what’s been on my mind.
PS. If you haven't already grabbed my new EP with Sacha Robotti, it's out now for free on Desert Hearts Records.
