Mikey Lion Curates Tunes to Help Us All Groove It Out

Mikey Lion

Desert Hearts co-founder Mikey Lion just dropped his new track, “I Like To Go Out,” and he’s celebrating in style with a fun-filled playlist!


Back in June, Mikey Lion unleashed his heartfelt debut LP, For The Love, otherwise known as a musical love letter to the community he adores. Since then our Desert Hearts head honcho has hit the ground running, reconnecting with the fans on the tour circuit while also remaining dedicated to the studio. In fact, he recently dropped “This Is The Beat,” a tune that re-focused him on the positive, healing energy we all need to survive. With a reinvigorated lease on life, Mikey is back with yet another incredible mood lifter appropriately titled, “I Like To Go Out.”

Created to express his gratitude and excitement for returning to the dance floor “I Like To Go Out” is filled with warm energy. An entertaining cowbell welcomes us to the party before the groovy synth tone pulls us in for an embrace. When the lyric drops in the bassline atmosphere begins to morph, leading us into a quirky yet sensual soundscape that teases the senses and tickles the feet into action. Top it all off with a little piano action and we have a tune that inspires us to make a beeline straight for our favorite watering hole.

I Like To Go Out” is my ode to the party scene. I think we all took going out to parties for granted until the pandemic took them away from us. During the lockdowns, it became apparent just how much this music, lifestyle, and community means to all of us. I never feel as good as when I’m on the dance floor with my people, so I wanted to make this track feel as good as possible. I’ll never take going out for granted again.

Along with my most recent single, “I Like To Go Out”, these are the tracks that I’m feelin’ the most and playing in my sets right now.
