Staple Desert Hearts Member, RYBO, Delivers First EP of 2022 ‘Survive’

If there’s anyone who knows how to throw the dance floor into complete mayhem, it’s Los Angeles-based DJ, RYBO. So it’s quite fitting the up-and-coming producer is set to lead the Desert Hearts release calendar in 2022 via the Survive EP. RYBO kicks off the new year with two originals, as well as an official remix from Eskuche. Explore the wonderfully creative, spirited side of DH on Survive.


The EP opens with a delectable title track, which represents the experimental, upstart vibes the producer flourishes in delivering. Whether in headphones or transmitted to the masses on the dancefloor, the title track explores the fun, yet introspective side of RYBO’s production. “Say It” continues with the expeditious BPM, offering concussive shakers and a popping kick drum. “Come On,” the vocalist beckons, harkening on the EP theme of wondrous expansion in dance sounds and the fortuitous calls of DH for listeners to feel out the vibe for themselves. The EP is rounded out by a remix of “Say It” from renowned producer/DJ, Eskuche. The Russian-born, New York-based artist is known for his signature house cuts characterised by growling basslines and resonating drum pattern, which has earned him support from tastemakers such as Marco Carola, Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Laurent Garnier, Stefano Noferini, Matthias Tanzmann, Maya Jane Coles and many more. His remix offers up a more progressive, journey feel to the original, and further supports Survive as a top-notch release to kick off the year.

The young, up-and-coming RYBO has been a staple member of the Desert Hearts family for the past three years, taking part in not only the festival itself, but also a number of one-off parties, showcases, and City Hearts tour stops. With every performance, his reputation proceeds him as he’s able to bring forth a legendary amount of energy and infectious spirit behind the decks that are primed for late-night debauchery. Just this year alone, he’s traveled and performed at Ocaso Music and Art Festival in Costa Rica, BPM Festival, and most recently during the Gari Safari party during Miami Music Week. The artist has also collaborated on a number of tracks with underground house talents Kevin Anderson and Matt Ossentjuk. With more performances and music in sight, expect to see RYBO elevating himself to new heights in the months to come. 

Desert Hearts looks to celebrate 10 years this Spring, when Desert Hearts Festival moves into its new venue of Lake Perris, California. Minds on the Run previews the label’s excitement to return to festival, as well as a renewed focus to expand on its electronic offerings.
