Well, we made it to a second episode. Thanks to everyone who downloaded the first episode and gave us feedback. This time around, we’re taking sober ravers, a bad case of gear lust and a few other topics ranging from old tech in sci-fi films to the collapse of the EDM bubble and binge watching on Netflix. So sit back and enjoy.

As part of the Ground Under podcast, we want to have a bit of fun and we want you to be involved. We thought the podcast name leant itself well to a great theme driven fictional café.

Now that we have a name, we need a menu and we want your help us make it. In keeping with the theme, every drink, appetizer, entrée and dessert has to incorporate a DJ/producer’s name. You get extra points for actually making a recipe so we can actually make each item and try them on the show.

You can submit your recipe ideas on our Facebook page or below in the comments. Each show, we’ll feature at least one of your creations.

Here are our submissions for this episode:

  • Carl’s Shrimp Coxtail with Poached Sea Bass — submitted by Dave Richards
  • Green Velvet Cake — submitted by Chris Reiche
  • John Digweed Tea — submitted by Ronnie Rask
