Smiley Coyote is a Durango local producer/dj that is an organizer for the local Ecstatic Dance Community,
Smiley Coyote dwells in the southwest where the desert meets the mountains. Music has been streaming through his veins since birth. Having been engulfed by the electronic music evolution, he’s been along for the ride since the 90’s. West Coast festivals such as Burning Man, Symbiosis, Lightning in a Bottle and Beloved are what really sparked the desire to share musical journeys through DJing. He’s enjoyed sharing the stage with some of the top producers in the industry as well as performed for many festivals. His musical selections are genre-bending and able to appease most audiences as long as they enjoy a touch of bass. Sharing audible frequencies to the Ecstatic Dance community is his most fulfilling experience however. Being able to craft a multiple hour set on the fly in order to support people’s movement practice truly brings him to howl at the moon.
