Have you ever been to Burning Man? If so have you ever tired to describe it someone? It’s really, really tough. Instead of wasting pages trying I’m gonna take a different approach this year. 2010 was probably my best Burn ever, and a lot of that had to do with the music. There was this great diversity that you seldom here on the playa. Electro over here, breaks over there, jungle (yes, I said jungle! We saw Aphrodite), trance, dub-step, and even Hip Hop! I heard more Hip Hop this year than I did in all my previous years combined. This is a good thing.
For my podcast this week I’m gonna take you on an aural tour of Burning Man 2010. Every song on this set I either heard in Black Rock City, played in Black Rock City, or was inspired by, yeah, you got it, my most recent trip to Black Rock City. After the jump I’ll have the full track list and where I heard/played the songs.
If you were at Burning Man this year what did you think? Did you enjoy the music? Any sets particularly stand out for you? I hope that this set might bring you back there, if just for an hour. If it’s not working on it’s own feel free to cover yourself in dust, sit under a heat lamp, pee in a jug, do lots of drugs and set something on fire. Always does the trick for me (^-^)v
