This is my live un-edited set from the Desert Hearts 2 Year Anniversary in November 2014. The 1st half of the mix takes you on a journey with some melodic progressive grooves and the 2nd half snaps you back into action w/ some techno.
Being in the scene for over 20 years now i'm completly blown away by the love and support our community has built. Much respect and big thanks to the Desert Hearts crew for having me.
I hope you enjoy this mix. I had no plan or playlist set.... I just played off the vibe with one eye open at about hour 60 of over 70+ straight hours of house, techno and love.
Time for some Techno! We're proud to share with you Ben Seagren b2b Tara Brooks just after sunset on Sunday night at our Desert Hearts Spring Festival 2014. After a blissed out Sunday day, we knew Ben was going to throw down some dark techno to bring in night. Even though some technical difficulties kept Ben from being able to play a proper set by himself, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as he and Tara Brooks threw down one of the most psychedelic sets of the weekend. You can catch Ben Seagren and Tara Brooks at our 2 Year Anniversary Festival on November 7-10. House, Techno, & Love... We Are All Desert Hearts.
Wowza!! Every year at DISTRIKT just keeps getting better and better. I can’t thank everyone enough for your continued support from all over the world. DISTRIKT would not happen with you and of course our dedicated kore campers that help run camp not only the playa but year round.
There where some recording issues on Friday so this is is just the 2nd half of my closing set. It starts out banging and then winds down as the darkness sets in and people fade back to camp to get warm.
See you in the dust!!
Peace, Love and always Music!!!

A deep house mix called Altered States.... Perfect to throw on after the after party or during the sunrise or cruising around on a boat for sunset. Enjoy :)
This is my live unedited set opening the main room for the All Gone Pete Tong show May 9th 2015 at The Public Works in San Franciso. It has been a while since I opened up a room right when the doors open.... This mix is deep & melodic to warm up the dancefloor as the crowd starts to roll in. Enjoy!

This week we're extremely pleased to have Ben Seagren (DISTRIKT / The Show / BeatFreak Recordings / Wülfpack) delivering a guest mix of dark and dirty tech house. Ben's the co-creating of Space Cowboys' favorite Burning Man day-time tradition, DISTRIKT and The Deep End before that. This extremely rockin and generous original mix clocks in at over 100 minutes, and will carry you through the rest of the week on into your weekend.
From Ben's bio:
Ben Seagren’s tenure as a staple within the West Coast underground techno music scene for over a decade has heated up from en fuego to some serious hot and heavy street cred. As the appetite for underground house music experiences has become insatiable over the past few years, Seagren is usually behind the shenanigans of the best parties and bumping bass that graces venues and pounds dance floors as both a Producer/DJ and a mastermind event director. Holding capital as the Co-Founder and Music Director of DISTRIKT (read: THE daytime destination dance party on the playa at Burning Man) and a handful of highly respected residencies at premier San Francisco night clubs like Ruby Skye and The End Up the years, Seagren has recently expanded his horizons and taken on the scene in Los Angeles. In the short time he’s been in LA, he’s already organized, hosted and played some of the best underground parties of the year under the DISTRIKT label featuring well known genre artists like Alan Fitzpatrick to showcasing undiscovered local talents that have caught the attention of labels and listeners across the globe.

It's my pleasure to bring you the next episode of the wulfpack series. I have become pretty close to the wulfpack family the past 2 years. They were all very welcoming when I moved to LA and we have become close friends of mine. They have definitely brought out a deeper side of me and that reflects in this mix. It's a deep melodic house and techno mix w/ a little but of weirdness.
Peace, love and always... MUSIC!
Not available. Shazam that shiit
Check out my live mix from Opulent Temple at Burning Man this year. Big techno bombs in this set. I love playing OT. Dropping monsters like this and while dj'ing in a booth that shoots 30' flames out the top of is insane.
Ben Seagren is a resident dj and co-founder of DISTRIKT. He is also a producer and promoter furthering the uprising House and Techno movement on the West Coast.
Always on the leading edge, you can hear his exquisite taste in Deep Techno in this week's show - the mix recorded LIVE at Burning Man in 2014!

This is the second release of a series of mixes I started called Altered States. Tracks included are my favorite deep house, deep techno at the moment.
