For those that attend Burning Man every year, you might have noticed a familiar voice on the radio -- yes, "The Voice of The Man" on BMIR 94.5 FM is none other than The ECC's TradeMark G., who also ran the station last year.  BMIR combines a great collection of DJ talent, but unfortunately for only one week a year, and for a limited audience.  These limits irked the bright minds of BMIR, so -- surprise -- they decided to do something about it.

That "something" is now Shouting Fire, a new year-round 24/7 internet radio station.  Its launch date is February 29th 2008 (Leap Launch!) but as a teaser-test there's a handful of programs being aired daily.  Along with a one-hour program from TradeMark, there's an exclusive Abbie Hoffman interview and other shows airing twice daily.  Once Shouting Fire is launched, TradeMark G. will host a weekly show every Thursday.

Take a listen!

It is with great pleasure that I declare this new website of The ECC to be LIVE!

Yes, years past due, our old link-rotted web-barnacled home page has finally been retired.  No more yellow backgrounds, no more late-90's design sense, and yes we promise, no more auto-playing loops on our front page. The new website should accommodate a lot of web things that we'd wanted to do previously but were handcuffed by our outdated site.  Huzzah!

Now, we can let you hear our MP3s through on-screen players.  We can share unfinished projects and experimental ideas we're working on.  We can keep a show calendar that actually looks like a calendar.  You can search everything on the site easily through the search box in the upper right.  We have high hopes for the new site and plan to keep it buzzing with activity.

So, take a look around.  There's plenty of MP3s to listen to, videos to watch, a growing discography, and much more.  Enjoy, and keep visiting!

On January 5th 2008, The ECC competed against 11 other remixers in the Crate Digger Death-Match. The Challenge: with only $12 of materials, create at least 12 minutes of music in only 12 hours.

It was brutal. Only half of the competitors even managed to finish. For those that did, their music -- 6 songs of 2+ minutes each -- will be judged by 3 judges. But each competitor chose a "hit song" to be judged by a 4th judge... and that 4th judge is you. And we need your vote! Please visit the voting page and vote for The ECC's track, Boom-a-lakka-boom. Thank you!

Vote for The ECC: http://www.drownradio.com/cdd01
** VOTING ENDS SATURDAY NIGHT, 12-JAN-08 **
Voted is now closed -- thanks to all who voted for us!

You can also hear all 6 ECC tracks and read an article about the experience.
