Mikey Lion Conjures Positive, Vibrant Vibes on New Single, “This Is The Beat”

Desert Hearts’ vibrant aesthetic is representative of what goes on inside the head of Mikey Lion. Earlier today, the DH co-founder submitted his latest colorful creation, “This is the Beat,” which channels his newfound focus of healing through dance music.

In June 2021, Mikey Lion dropped a glistening 9-track LP, For the Love; the 100th release on Desert Hearts. For The Love is ultimately a culmination of the triumphs and tribulations Mikey Lion has faced through the years since he first set out to bring the mantra of House, Techno, and love to a global scale.

As I get further into my DJ career, my goals have changed from wanting to be the biggest DJ in the world to being the most effective healer with my music and energy,” said Mikey Lion via an October 2021 press release. “This track was made with healing people in mind and if it helps one person out there, then it’s a success.”

The lyrics say: “This is the beat that gives you life.” Like-so, Mikey’s intention with the track was to craft with that exact feeling for listeners. Whether it’s healing, positivity, or love, Mikey Lion and his Desert Hearts crew have crafted their own lane of inclusive and cathartic dance music.
