Since then, he’s developed into a pillar of the modern techno community thanks to world tours, live shows, albums and EPs under a number of aliases and as part of more than one studio collective.

When & Where
Founded in 2010, Heart Phoenix (FKA Heart Deco) is a community of artists, creators, DJ's, producers, and friends with a large double-decker art / sound vehicle designed to invite, inspire, connect, and project love – and incredible music.
Designed by a core team of talented artists, engineers, and craftsman working full time on the project, it was completed in 60 days and then went to Burning Man 2010: Metropolis for a very successful debut. Dozens of friends also volunteered their time, energy, and love to the project during the intense 2 month build.
Heart Phoenix has continued to serve both the SF and BM communities ever since by offering a mobile beacon for positive energy on the playa and beyond. One example of our dedication to these efforts (aside from throwing great parties) are the Artery Tours we lead every year at Burning Man.
