Cody Edwards (aka Smiley Coyote) has been obsessed with the musical world since he was in diapers. It wasn’t until attending Burning Man for the first time in 2007 that his search for the perfect sound was achieved. After his dusty return from the playa he began his DJ career in Durango Colorado during the winter of 2007. The local public radio station KDUR had a 6 AM slot open and Satori Soundz was created. His show focused on ethereal ambient and downtempo sounds due to its early morning timeslot. The night life was lacking in town however and his niche was filled when joining forces with local producer Peter Robot to create a new energy to the dance scene. Since then, he has toured with the Salt Fire Circus as their DJ and had the pleasure of opening for big names such as Tipper, Heyoka (Andreilien), Bluetech, Heavyweight Dub Champion, Octopus Nebula and Fort Knox Five to name a few. He was an integral part of creating the Ecstatic Dance scene in Durango and has recently transplanted to Northern California where he is a regular DJ at the Grass Valley, Placerville and Sacramento Ecstatic Dances. With music sets ranging from yoga classes to all night dance parties, Smiley Coyote feels the energy of the crowd and plays his sets completely on the fly.
