Joyism : Got Found? (Part 1) FIXED
October/14/2010 Filed in: Playalicious
While DJ Fundi is out on sabbatical, we asked our comrades over at DestinationBurningMan.com to share a mix with our listeners that would feed the ears, tantalize the mind and lift the spirits. DJ Playaduster sent this mix over. We think it will work on all accounts. Enjoy! -- The Podcast Cafe
"There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills...
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust..
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home.......
Cause, I built a home
Until it disappeared
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust…….."

The Cinematic Orchestra open up this musical mix with a beautiful and emotive song that speaks to me in these days and weeks after Burning Man 2010 : "To Build a Home." It has multiple layers of meanings for me and stirs me in places deep down inside.
Sade provides the second track in the "opening statement" of the podcast, livening up the mood with another song that is rich with meaning for me these days. I heard a DJ slyly drop in to a dance party on the playa, and I sang along to the chorus with all the lovely people on the dancefloor at the top of our lungs, "I've been torn up inside (oh!) / I've been left behind (oh!) / So I ride / I have the will to survive. I'm a soldier of love / all the days of my live..."
With those 2 opening salvos behind us, the mix moves in to the first movement... (more after the jumo)
...inspired by the Pink Mammoth. One of the best daytime dance party camps on the playa, the San Francisco-based Mammoth crew was conveniently located a block away from my camp at Get Found+Chillville. Several sunsets found me and Hannah Tangerine getting down 'n dirty beneath the disco ball with a frosty fruity cocktail in hand, surrounded by some of the happiest, lovingest Burners we encountered all week long. The Pink Mammoth sessions inspired a renewed passion for disco and house music, happy music, love music, and I tried to represent this in the first half of Joyism.
But eventually the sun does set, and nighttime slips in to Black Rock City -- an entirely different mood and mindset takes over, and a different kind of musical soundtrack is needed. You'll hear this happen when the Love Committee gives way to the freakbeat bass music of Opiuo -- a DJ from Australia who played his first-ever playa set midweek at Entheon Village, on the heels of weird wobblie grooves from Heyoka and Vibesquad. Opiuo was my favorite new discovery on playa this year, and so gets two different tracks in this mix -- one ultra-funky, one deep, dark and strange like BRC at 4 am.
So, the second half takes the listener on a tour of a night spent freaking out and grooving in whomp domes all night, receiving Bass Chakra Therapy from the best soundsystems anywhere in the world, and concludes with two remixes from An-ten-ae. An-ten-ae looms large in Get Found's collective memory as the DJ who introduced us to the Wall of Whomp at Root Society Thursday night. He opened up his outrageous set with a Black Sabbath song retooled for the playa and pretty much melted the entire audiences' mind with these glitched-out power chords and Ozzy yowls.
Pretty much every song in this mix is meaningful to me in some way or another, whether because of the groove, the memory I associate with it, the lyrics or even just the song title. I will spare you all the details here, but know that this mix, especially by opening with "To Build a Home" and "Soldier of Love," is thoroughly intentional, completely infused with loving vibrations from the heart, dusty at the edges and crafted especially for my peoples at Camp Get Found. It attempts to illuminate on my ideas of Joyism as Sustainable Synergy via bass waves, soundstickingz, time warps and heartbeats.
I'll soon release the second half of the Got Found? Burning Man 2010 mix, which takes the adventure through the second half of the week via new musical directions. Absorb what you can from Joyism and prepare yourself for….Loveness!
