Mikey Lion announces ‘For The Love’ LP sharing the first single ‘Above The Clouds’


Love has and will always be at the centre of everything Mikey Lion does.

Before the global success of Desert Hearts, the gigs and the cult-like community, there was a young kid with a dream, a ragtag crew of House and Techno fans, and a raging fire within. Since those early Mojave nights in 2012 Mikey Lion has risen as one of the most formative participants in the West Coast Festival scene, all the way radiating a contagious sense of warmth to those willing to catch a vibe.

His debut album continues his path of transparency and positivity. ‘For The Love’, out April 28 on Desert Hearts Records, encapsulates a journey of questioning and connectivity, the highs and lows of pursuing your passion, and a portrait of an artist searching for something more.

In Mikey Lion’s own words, “This album has been eight years in the making ever since we threw our very first Desert Hearts party back in 2012. It’s a culmination of everything that I’ve learned, felt, and believed in over the years. The first single, Above The Clouds, is what House Heaven feels like to me. It’s dreamy, it’s powerful, and it makes me feel good.”

Our first sighting of ‘For The Love’ is its lead single ‘Above The Clouds’, a cascading journey into the heart and mind of a community leader on one hand and a human struggling with the pressures of the modern age on the other. It’s a true indicator of the album to follow, representing an artist hellbent on pushing their production prowess towards a timeless and iconic direction.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
