This weekend, over 60,000 revelers will be making their pilgrimage out to the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada for the 28th annual Burning Man festival. What began as an intimate 20-person bonfire gathering on San Francisco’s Baker Beach by event pioneers Larry Harvey and Jerry James, has grown into the hedonistic, spiritual spectacle we know and love today. San Diego-based DJ producer Mikey Lion is one of this year’s attendees bringing along a clutch of hand-picked desert-friendly selections to move the masses. Over the course of next week, he and his Southern California Desert Hearts brethren will be playing at a multitude of events including their very own Desert Hearts Block on Wednesday, August 27th and we were curious to find out what’s on his set-list at the moment. So, here it is, Mikey Lion’s ultimate 10 Burning Man tracks to get you in the mood to dance out in the stark Nevada desert.

His exclusive 60-minute Corona SunSets mix includes 16 slammin’ house tracks from Hot Creations’ Jamie Jones, Gene Farris, Maceo Plex, Kenny Larkin, Radio Slave, Robert Dietz, and Cajmere himself.
