The Road To Desert Hearts EP series has begun its trek, lined new EPs from Mikey Lion, Marbs, Porky, and Lee Reynolds in the pipeline. Meant to showcase the hard work each Desert Hearts ringleader has put into the studio in recent years while serving as a teaser for the frenzy to come at their annual off-grid bacchanale, the series kicks off on a strong note with Porky and Mitch Dodge.
Desert Hearts’ master of eclecticism and Mitch Dodge head in a grooving direction with Chameleon. The two-tracker does opens on a scintillating note with minimal synthwork, cerebral vocal clips, and a heady low-end. Post-break, the track does well in driving movement on the dancefloor. “Big Dog” closes Chameleon on an acidic note, making for a proper underground tune geared toward the afterhours.
With a strong start in place, we look forward to what the rest of the Desert Hearts Crew has in store for the rest of the Road To Desert Hearts.
