Mikey Lion Releases Debut Deep & Tech House Album ‘For The Love’


Over the past five years, the Desert Hearts Family has found itself at the center of a dusty movement, fostering intimate experiences of sonic joy and unbounded love across the globe, while preaching a conscious ethos of “House, Techno and Love.” Their ringleader, Mikey Lion, has been slowly teasing singles off his upcoming debut album, For The Love, and is now finally ready to release his project out into the world.

The leading track, “Above The Clouds,” is Lion’s interpretation of house music heaven—a feeling he seeks to emulate at each Desert Hearts event. “When I’m With You,” a breezy vocal jam crafted alongside Lubelski and Jackson Englund, pays homage to blissful times spent with loved ones in and out of the rave. The peak time ready “Spot Freak” represents cheeky dancefloor moments with the crew via off-kilter synth effects, licks of acid, and hard-hitting percussion.

For The Love is a sonic depiction of Mikey Lion’s Desert Hearts journey up to the present day—a near decade-long saga marked by questioning and connectivity, the highs and lows of pursuing your passion, and a portrait of an artist searching for something more. At the center of it all is love, and finding life’s purpose.
