Desert Hearts crew knows the formula for putting on an unforgettable party. Part of the recipe for success is the dedication and mastery of house and techno that the label promotes. The Family & Friends series from Desert Hearts Records is really an ode and celebration to what the label does best.
The third installment of the series transports the listener directly to one of these infamous Desert Hearts parties. Comprised of 19 tracks and riddled with label stalwarts old and new, there is no shortage of fun and dancing on the collection. With artists like Andrea Henneberg, Sacha Robotti, NiQW, Mad Villains, Cut Snake, More Than Friends, and many more, every shade of Desert Hearts is represented: house, deep house, techno, and tech-house.
The opener to the collection is an Andreas Henneberg track that features a robotic voice repeating, “Desert Hearts,” until the beat pauses and the voice proclaims, “Let’s rock that shit.” It sets up the listener for what’s to come on the following tracks and is genius start to Volume 3 of Family & Friends. Crank up the volume and enjoy.
