Extended Family launches with a mix from Mike Petillo, arguably the most underrated DJ and musician in the city of Washington DC. Petillo is 1/2 of Protect-U alongside Aaron Leitko - they released their Free USA LP on the DC imprint Future Times in 2014, a prolific label that Petillo has helped manage alongside Andrew Field-Pickering for the last 6 years.

Petillo's 'Frog In The Coffee Pot' mix is a clear example of his musical wisdom - it stretches and slinks between ethereal patches of hope and paranoid dread with graceful fluidity. Petillo manages to weave some esoteric tracks into an accessible program, proving his mastery as one of the finest selectors in the District.
