Wow, what a year on the Playa! I must say that of my dozen Burns, this was definitely at the top. From our beautiful, brand new DISTRIKT camp design and top notch camp members to our upgraded, full throttle sound system and the cage over the dance floor...but mostly because of you. I have never seen so many smiling faces, amazing energy and love for the music as I did this year.
All year long I look forward to my Saturday closing set at DISTRIKT and for 8 consecutive years I've had the privilege to play the final set, pre-Burn at the best party, for the best people, in the best place. But this year was special. In 15 years of being a DJ I have never felt so connected to a crowd, so in touch with the music and so happy to do what I do. Now we can re-live that epic afternoon.
This is a journey through new and old...starting with some tech house, then into some techno, tribal, progressive, and then some classics. The bad news is that of the 4 hours I played, only 2.5 hours were recorded. The good news is that I've broken my playa curse of recording mishaps and 2.5 hours were recorded!! So, for those of you who didn't make it out this year, here's some of what you missed. For those of you who were there, that last hour plus was special and just for you and I hope it lives in your memory as one of the best sunsets of your life...I still get goosebumps when I shut my eyes and listen to this recording, picturing the awesome madness that was that afternoon, I hope when you close your eyes and listen feel the same.
I really want to thank everyone for all the incredible feedback on this year's closing set, I so appreciate hearing from you...remember, I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you for being part of the best party on earth...and just wait until next year!!
See you on the dance floor! - Kramer
