This year, Burning Man took place August 25th through September 1st at Black Rock City, located in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Burning Man is much more than a music festival; it's a gathering of over 60,000 "Burners" for 8 wild days. Although I have never been, Burning Man is a very community-based event in which everything is created by attendees with a leave no trace policy. Among other creations, towering wooden sculptures are built and then burned in a massive celebration.
Tycho's sunrise set time of 5:40 am sounds like a perfect time slot due to his relaxing, laid-back sound. This DJ set lasting over 2 hours delivers a diverse combination of originals, remixes, and an array of tunes from other artists. Tycho's ambient style is apparent in this mix as the selection of mostly mellow house tracks reflect the musical style Tycho offers.
