There's few that have a more crucial voice in contemporary hip-hop than the wildly prolific MIKE. Ushering through the next generation of underground Hip-Hop via his label 10k global all the while inviting a wide roster of appearances on everything he touches. Following up 2023's collab album with The Alchemist & Wiki, Burning Desire is the prime example of MIKE at his best. Dishing out an ambitious platter of beats under his DJ Blackpower alias and layering it with his typically languid, hazy and self-referential flows with effortless energy. - Hunter

Unstoppable New York rapper and songwriter MIKE is back with the vinyl pressing of his ninth studio album. Largely self-produced under his own dj blackpower moniker, Burning Desire has been described as "a dark romantic horror with comedic twists", which sounds about perfect to us. Featuring an impressive raft of guests such as Earl Sweatshirt, Larry June, Liv.e, Crumb's Lila Ramani, and plenty more, the record dabbles in themes of revenge, devastation, and beauty, with Pitchfork calling it "self-assured and clear-eyed, ushering in an ambitious new era for the hometown hero", and countless other publications chiming in with praise. Hawt! - Flying Out

Burning Desire is the ninth studio album by MIKE, released via his own 10k label. The expansive new record has guest features from Earl Sweatshirt, Larry June, Liv.e, Venna, Lila Ramani (from Crumb), El Cousteau, Niontay, mark william lewis, Klein, and TAKA. A dark romantic horror with comedic twists. It tells the tale of a fire deeply rooted in revenge and devastation, masked with an intricate beauty. Almost entirely self-produced under MIKE’s dj blackpower alias, and follows Faith is A Rock, his collaborative album with The Alchemist and Wiki. Burning Desire is one of MIKE’s most considered projects to date, and incorporates live instrumentation for the first time, adding more depth and rich musicality to his universe. The album was aptly described by Pitchfork as “self-assured and clear-eyed, ushering in an ambitious new era for the hometown hero.”
