Di5orient 2005: Going Mobile

Disorient's bringing a new beast to BRC this year: the DI5ORIENT EXPRESS (DEX) - a massive art car slash mobile sound system, made with love in NYC and dragged to the playa by a crackerjack team of machine elves.

Each night, we'll park and play next to a different piece of spectacular Playa art, bringing our music, light, and fire next to stone, earth and steel.

If listed, nightly locations are tentative. Updates will be posted at our base camp: 8:00 and Esplanade.

Or just look for the blinking, orange "Di5" sign on the big bus with no sides and all the speakers on top and the 18' LED semicircles making those cool patterns...(well, you'll know it once you see it!)

Here's the lineup:

MON - Warm-up in camp, with house, breaks, & chill-out from camp DJs.
*Di5orient, 8:00 and Esplanade

TUES - Gloriously techy stuff: Spinoza (electro/tech-house), Artur (funky techno), Wolf + Lamb (minimal tech-house), The Eye (minimal techno & Goa trance).
*Party starts at the greeters station and then moves to open playa

WEDS - House, and lots of it: Laird (breaky house), Bass (tribal house), Vitamin Devo vs Biancadina (progressive house), Arrow (tribal house). Artur (deep house), Sascha (chillout).
*Location TBA

THURS - Space Cowboys ahoy!! Cap'n Kirk brings a crew to rock our beast with breakbeats (plus D&B by Arrow). Then we head to Fringe to see Hamsa Lila bringing in the dawn.
*At "the big tree"; Pilgrimage to The Fringe, Amnesia and 3:00

FRI - Freek Factory presents: Lorin Bassnectar, All Good Funk Alliance, Rodman, Rhythmystic, Mikio, and Ooah -- all kinds of breaks, all night and all morning long, with a Freekily massive boost to the bass!
*Deep playa, directly behind The Man (12:00)

SAT - Dawn set by Yossi Fine (world/dub). Post-burn lineup tbd. We host the party all night and all morning long. Party ends SUN at noon.
*We bring the DEX right next to the smoking embers of The Man

Di5orient loves performers grooving to our music: fire performers, poi spinners, hoopers, dancers, jugglers, etc. We'll welcome you anytime.

On Friday and Saturday, the DEX will be providing fire performers with free white gas and lamp oil (while it lasts).

We'll see you all out there, blinking in the distance with love!!!!!

Were you recording?

Hi! I run a website, http://www.PlayaTunes.com - collecting the music that drifts out across Black Rock City. Do you have any recordings from your mobile system or your camp? If so, and you're willing, I'd love to put them on the site! (No commercialism there - check out the site and you'll see.) If you weren't recording, if any of your dj's have sets that might be similar to what they put out at BM, that works too.

Please get in touch if you're interested!

I'm glad that DanceswithElves brought this thread back up....

KY, I wanted to pass along a heartfelt THANK YOU to you and everyone involved in Disorient this year. I avoid the Opulent Temple people (it just didn't feel right to me) and Disorient gives me my music fix and lets me dance out there....just like it has the past 2 years when I first checked it out.

The music was great, I loved the art car / sound system, and again...thank you for being one of the highlights of my experience on the playa. I really hope everyone in your group makes it back for 2006!
Thank you for over 7 years of eplaya memories. I have asked Emily Sparkle to delete my account and I am gone. Goodbye and Goodluck to all of you! I will miss you!

i love(d) di5orient.

i remember it being tuesday or so and we foolishly attempted to use DEX as a landmark telling someone where to meet us...

"right by the disorient bus!"

later that night i remember wandering around and thinking.... " ok, there it is! dis......"

[looking around]

.... orient?

and then falling instantly in love.

2005 was my first burn and dex will always live on as one of my favorite concepts! :)

i'm one of the disorienters... wanted to thank you all for these great comments...

danceswithelves, if you want to pm me with a mailing address, i'd be very happy to pass it along to our DJs. we didn't have the recording thing set up this year, so they'll have non-playa sets, but very similar

kinetic, we will most definitely be back in 2006!!!!!

and serra -- i'm so glad you "got it"!!!!!!
