DJ ESP spins on April 29 at the Appaloosa Grill

The aptly named DJ ESP (aka Woody McBride) has a long and illustrious resumé — and not just in the electronica world. In 1988, McBride moved to Minneapolis and immediately became involved in community service, coaching basketball, tribal and Celtic-style dance, and spinning what he refers to as "spiritually oriented electronic dance music." After mentoring under Twin Cities pioneer Kevin Cole, the DJ branched into production. Today he oversees Communique's electronica record labels and tours all over the globe mixing his blend of ambient, minimalist techno that will burrow into your brain and leave you smiling and blissed out for days. ESP has recorded for a who's-who list of record labels and collaborated with such names as Derrick Carter, Terry Mullan, Frankie Bones, DJ Dan and Damon Wild. On Friday, April 29, he'll be at the Appaloosa Grill for Full Flavor Fridays with resident Greg Campbell, Garret and Sound Advice.
