The Rebel Heart party helped me find myself at Burning Man last year. The music was new and inspirational and I felt it deep inside of me. I was back in my studio within 2 days of returning from the desert, fired up by this new direction and I think I managed to create my own spin on this most magical experience and of course I sent it to Crosstown straight away".
For Armenian born 20-year-old David “DAVI” Khanjian, 2012 was a breakthrough year - with a South American tour, the release of a monster remix of Underworld’s anthem ‘Two Month’s Off’’ and playing a set to 50,000 people at Burning Man festival - a life-changing experience that inspired this EP.
After relocating to LA after attending the prestigious Komitas State Music Conservatory in Armenia, DAVI’s production career began to take off and a chance meeting with a personal hero Robert Babicz led to him doing the first ever remix for Robert’s new label Babiczstyle. Later releases came on labels such as Bits & Pieces, Armada, Outside The Box, Treibstoff, Anjunadeep and Hope Recordings.
