This week on The RIPEcast East Coast meets West as the Space Cowboys welcome DJ Everyday (PEX/Playloop) from Philadelphia to the 1s and 2s. Press play and enjoy, Boys and Girls!
A little more background on this week's guest...
For some people, music is not a hobby but a way of life – something that fills and inspires each day and every breath. DJ Everyday lives this reality with every beat he drops, whether he is producing tech-laden grooves, performing at major international music festivals, helping to run Playloop Records or throwing the infamous PEX parties in his native Philadelphia.
Not many performers can claim to have opened for Deadmau5 and played sunrise on the Playa at Burning Man, but DJ Everyday straddles these two worlds with ease and a smile, uniting the electronic music community beyond appearances or geography. Consistently on-point with fun and refined sets of tech house and techno, DJ Everyday is an integral force in the electronic arts scene, a local luminary whose duties range from sound guy to A& R to party starter.
Known for his keen ability to read the crowd and connect on an emotional and spiritual level, DJ Everyday’s down-to-earth vibe and laid-back attitude belie the fact that he has played hundreds and hundreds of clubs, festivals, parties and concerts, including an opening spot in San Francisco with the legendary Orbital on their 2010 tour. A drummer by trade, DJ Everyday has been producing and performing for over a decade. His powerful style and positive vibe have made him a favorite not only in Philly where he plays as resident at PEX parties, but also at dance floors across the nation and around the world.
Since signing with Playloop Records in 2006, DJ Everyday has released a number of singles through the label both independently and in collaboration with friend and producer Kezner as “Locality.” A major force in the Philadelphia party scene, DJ Everyday has been playing the popular Philadelphia Experiment (PEX) parties since 2007 and now helps to throw some of the top events of the year, from bigger shows like Heartburn and the Halloween Ball to more intimate one-offs. This year, he is one of the producers of the SubCulture music festival in Philadelphia.
This year is off to a pounding start for DJ Everyday. Proving that beats know no bounds, this world-touring DJ continues his musical expeditions into 2012; having just performed multiple dates in Costa Rica, including the Envision Festival, as well as the release of his new single "Nepenthe" with Matt Cue. In between global gigs, you can hear DJ Everyday at the PEX vs. Playloop monthly parties in Philadelphia, or at the SubCulture Music Festival and PEX Summer Festival in June.
In addition to his heavy touring schedule, watch for DJ Everyday to release a new EP in collaboration with Matt Cue later this year. Fresh and fun, DJ Everyday’s beats need no special occasion to make you move…just put on the record and dance- every day.
