The Lab NYC is Mixmag's weekly live stream and post-work unwind, powered by Void Acoustics, where we showcase the finest DJs direct from our Brooklyn office. This Friday, July 26, one clublands most colorful characters - Desert Hearts founder Mikey Lion - hits the decks in The Lab NYC.
San Diego born-and-bred DJ Mikey Lion has turned his boutique festival movement and music label Desert Hearts into an internationally recognized dance music institution. Spreading their mantra of 'House, Techno and Love' beyond the Southern California high desert, Mikey Lion and his Desert Hearts family's infectious dedication to creating gregarious dancefloor vibes has resulted in takeovers at major US festivals such as Coachella, Lightning in A Bottle, Burning Man and more. With his potent mixture of psychedelic and tribal sounds in both his sets and productions, the ever-recognizable big cat of the tech-house scene continues to prove himself as one of the best party starters in the states.
If there was one thing besides music that Mikey Lion is known for, it's his peacocking style that consists of bright colors, sequenced jackets and feathered hats. The brand Thousand Deep will be launching their equally as wild disco hat collection in the Lab NYC available for purchase. Check out the caps here.
On opening duty, The Lab welcomes Boston-based disco selector Bisön. Hear more from him here.
