This week the Space Cowboys are pleased to welcome our good pal, Ethan Miller, to the program. For this, his RIPEcast debut, Ethan treats us to a live recording of his set from the Friends and Family Camp Out this summer. Press play. Enjoy!
"Every DJ has their signature event - BOC, the Halloween Renegade, Sanctuary, etc. - the one event they look forward to all year, plan for, practice for and get up for, no matter what. That event for me is the Friends and Family Summer Campout, an event I've been helping produce for over 16 years now. While every year has its surprises, breaking my ankle mud wrestling just hours before my set was at the extreme edge of that category. But, like the postman, neither rain, snow, sleet, hail, irate husbands or brutal dogs was going to come between me and the dirty pounding I had in mind for FnF's dancefloor that night. It's light on finesse and heavy on vicodin but this set Blew Shit Up and if it doesn't make you dance, you can have your money back. Enjoy!" - EM
A little more background on this week's spacial guest....
Colorful founder of the much-loved Bay Area dance collective, Friends and Family, Ethan has been making dance floors sweat since 1993. Known early in his career for hard Acid and Techno sets, the years since have revealed a taste for Breaks, House, Tech House, Deep House, and of course Techno of all flavors.
While currently turning up at DISTRIKT, BrassTax, Strategik, SWAG, MotorCityJam, Prohibition, Opel, and other Bay Area underground events, Ethan has also held residencies at MAD Mondays, RhythmMethod, Delve, and of course Friends and Family. Reaching way back you would have found him holding it down at some of SF's now legendary raves including The Gathering, Vision, Basics and more.
