After a one-year Burning Man hiatus, I am excited to be heading back to the playa this year with my good friends at DISTRIKT. All four of my previous Burning Man experiences took place at 9:00 and F when the camp was called The Deep End and many of my closest friends, including my best friend Piper Hook, remain key members of the camp today. So it's only appropriate I return to that familiar spot, where I've had so many wonderful experiences, for my fifth Burn.
A little background on yours truly by way of introduction: I'm an Ohio native and have called San Francisco my home for almost seventeen years. I spent three of the best years of my life as a Dj with The Deep End (2006-2009) before joining up with the Space Cowboys in January 2010 (which has been an equally rewarding experience). I produce three podcasts including one for the Cowboys called The RIPEcast and this one for DISTRIKT, which is a collaborative effort with my good pal and DISTRIKT resident, Kramer.
The mix you're about to hear is a compilation of day-time house tracks entitled "Gettin' Down at The Compound". It's an homage to my favorite after-hours spot in San Francisco, a place I refer to affectionately as "The Compound" (some of you may know it as "PachaSF"). I think you'll find this set will come in quite handy when your Friday night has turned into Saturday afternoon or when your Saturday night has become Sunday morning or any other occasion when you've been up for a while and there is little chance you'll be sleeping any time soon.....
Enjoy the mix, Boys and Girls, and I'll see you on the Playa at 9:00 and F! - Zach
