Burning Man’s official Decompression is not until October 12, but for those who still have the beats of the Playa ringing in their ears and wish they were back there, there’s plenty of good stuff going on this weekend in San Francisco. Playawear is encouraged.
Got another Burner gig? Post it in the Comments.
Opulent Temple are off the Playa and straight back into it, bringing Stanton Warriors to Public Works this Friday night.

Opulent Temple & Public Works presents ‘Dust Off’

A 100% benefit to help OT get out of what is looking like some inevitable debt from this year’s (soon to be) epic camp.
Presale tickets available now HERE:
If we get enough pre-sale we’ll look at adding a silent disco outside so commit early 😛
Both floors of Public Works.
161 Erie St @ Mission.
Both the boyz are in town for this one (and neither are at Burning Man), and we’ll have OT residents and playa staples joining us to dust it up some more! Save some mojo, this party has always kinda totally rocked.
Space Cowboys will be rocking it at Monarch.
A Space Cowboy knows that reentry is always harder than takeoff. It’s all the work in reverse but minus the energy and enthusiasm. So coast into home with us at our Space Port of choice: Monarch. We’ll shake off the last of the dust and help spin new memories into epic legends as our DJs do their best to piece it all back together. You can wash those costumes next weekend, you won’t need um till Decom anyway.

Stanton Warriors (UK)
Since bursting onto the scene with their multi award-winning compilation “The Stanton Sessions” back in 2001, the Stanton Warriors’ irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties over the past thirteen years; from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to the stages of Glastonbury, Exit, Burning Man, Ultra and Coachella, selling out global tours and topping DJ lists along the way.
In the studio, Bristol’s Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark, uncategorisable sound that is at once all their own, but also utterly indefinable, leading to high-profile releases on XL Records, Fabric, Cheap Thrills, Central Station and Universal, alongside official remixes for everyone from Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim, to MIA and Gorillaz. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity has ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers, as they remain fresh, original and relevant; obstinately dancing to beat of their own drum and helping to pave the way for new talent.
In 2013 alone, the Stanton Warriors topped the Beatport charts (again), inspired Disclosure’s Grammy-nominated album Settle, got Annie Mac dancing on her living room carpet, opened London’s 3k capacity Building Six club, saw their podcast shoot to No. 3 in the iTunes chart and smashed the stages of Coachella, Ultra and Glastonbury.
In 2014, the Stanton Warriors typically show no sign of slowing down, with sold-out Stanton Sessions tours across the USA and UK, collaborations with Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird-signed Cause & Affect, a re-release of their smash Bring Me Down, main stage slots at London’s SW4 and Miami’s Ultra festivals and a slew of exciting releases on their own tastemaker label Punks.
“Stanton Warriors’ Bring Me Down is pretty much the perfect garage beat. Everything about that song – the vocal line, the chords, the melody – is totally original.” DISCLOSURE
“Oh my Gosh, SO good! This is the kind of music that makes you literally want to go mental on the nearest dancefloor. As tried and tested on my living room carpet!” ANNIE MAC, BBC RADIO 1
“Stanton Warriors make bass music; intentionally vague, un-pigeonholeable, brilliant bass music.” NOISEY, VICE
“Their relevance and influence has grown with every year and their Stanton Sessions parties simply reaffirm their position atop the pedestal.” MTV
“Stanton Warriors always deliver, this latest track just takes it to a whole other level.” ZANE LOWE, BBC RADIO 1
