What began on a solitary Brooklyn rooftop as an homage to Lee Burridge‘s prolific time spent navigating the arid, technicolor landscape of Nevada’s Burning Man, has since evolved into a worldwide phenomenon.
Burridge and team have spent the past seven years forging the All Day I Dream brand into not only a series of kaleidoscopic, house-harkening paradises, but a flourishing label to match. Celebrating their most heavily-booked year of touring on record, comprised of 40 countries and 60 overall event dates, All Day I Dream has recently announced their end-of-year agenda.
This year’s residual locations are anything but leftovers, with stops in Chicago, Ibiza, Vegas, and Amsterdam (to name a few) still to come. The immaculately-decorated events brandish uniquely curated lineups, which include both label-frequenters and special guests alike. Past parties have included performances from YokoO, Lost Desert, Oona Dahl, and, of course, Burridge himself.
Just in time for the fall leg of the tour, French house wielder, Sébastien Léger has turned to All Day I Dream to release his floating, florescent three-track Underwater Rocket EP to keep dreamers’ heads in the clouds as summer meets its fateful end. The vapory, visceral layout of the EP superbly embodies the lofty, ethereal nature of the imprint itself. The listener can effortlessly lose herself in the otherworldly echos in “Rocket To Lee’s Little Cloud” or traverse a slightly slipperier terrain inside the immaculate ripples of “Underwater.” Léger’s Underwater Rocket is a hallucinatory, yet reflective, invite to explore the less trodden corridors of the subject’s own psyche.
