Brad Robinson started playing house music on the airwaves of Vanderbilt radio station WRVU, Nashville in 1994. Warehouse parties were prominent in the midwest and southeastern US during those years, providing Brad exposure to some of the best DJs and some of the best crowds that the scene had to offer. Influenced by DJs and producers like Mark Grant, Mark Farina, DJ Dan, the Chicago Teamsters, the Hardkiss Brothers, and DJ Sneak, Brad continued to develop his style of house music that would have a lasting effect on him and his fans. Playing parties and events from New Orleans to Chicago, Brad quickly discovered that his house music could bring people together. With a rare opportunity, Brad travelled to San Francisco to intern with the infamous Hardkiss Records label. The experience would forever change his view of electronic music and it was the eclectic vibe of the San Francisco music scene which drew him back in 1998 where he interned for OM Records and began to call SF his home.
In 2000, Brad joined the Space Cowboys collective and journeyed to his first of many Burning Man festivals in the Nevada desert. In the desert of Black Rock City and the streets of San Francisco, Brad continued to share his love of house music with his 8+ year monthly residency at Vision and honed his trademark sound. Brad can be found playing at some of San Francisco's iconic annual events including the Space Cowboy annual New Years Day Breakfast of Champions, as well as clubs and parties in the Bay Area.
For Brad, playing house music is about connecting with the mood and celebration of the community he is with. His style is best described as a little funk, a lot of groove, some classic house sounds, some sneak-up-on-ya latin vibes, but always infused with soul and organic elements.
The Space Cowboys are a San Francisco based collective that began its exploration of the cosmos over a decade ago, as a diverse group of talented individuals who came together in the pursuit of the creation of unique entertainment events, mechanical contraptions, and unique art projects. The group consists of members from all walks of life and vocations – engineers, event planners, designers, programmers, musicians, environmentalists, therapists, architects, nurses, video editors, producers, corporate executives, animators, and financial advisers.
The Space Cowboy family reaches outside of San Francisco to NYC, LA, Canada, and London. The collective serves as an outlet for the members and their friends and family to creatively and socially express themselves beyond their day jobs.
