DEEP PLAYA with Rampue, KMLN and LUM
Stop counting time, forget it’s Thursday and go with the flow which has its own pulse and cadence to modulate your heartbeat; to expand or condense your perceptions. Deep Playa is a nod of welcome to the masters and prodigies of tech-tinged psychedelic house ripened in the primordial dead-dry dust under the scorching Black Rock sun. Enough said.
With undefinable DJ sets that meander between genres with soulful vocals, tribal rhythms, deep basslines, and sharp high hat-driven beats, Rampue’s talents have taken him from his Berlin bedroom to the stages of Burning Man and beyond.
Just like their reptilian eponym, KMLN (pronounced “chameleon”) has a tendency to shift shape, change color, and fade seamlessly between genres. Combining deep tribal house with minimal techno and featuring live instruments, syncopation, and organic sounds, KMLN is considered a master of the sunrise set.
Having grown up imbibing the indigenous cultures of Mexico’s Riviera Maya and his native Argentina, LUM conceptually explores the confluences and diffluences of ancient and contemporary civilizations with electronic beats, jungle sounds, and traditional instruments. He invites his denizens to leave the dance floor and dance under the stars.
With a signature sound that draws from both the Orient and the Occident, Lica has in recent years warmed hearts at such festivals as Portugal’s BPM and Burning Man, as well as filling the dancefloors of Eastern Europe with her energetic drum and bass sets. First setting foot into music on the underground scene of her native Estonia, Lica has since refined her live performances with a meticulous strive for perfection and progression, using vinyls and CDs and incorporating myriad instrumental passages and vocal elements.
