We just couldn't do this without you.

Some of the highlights from 2019

Thank you! 

 New Merch! 

We have been so thrilled to finally be consistantly producing quality, sweat shop free T shirts with the sick Cozmic Cat logo since last year... Currently on our 5th round, we are proud  to be able to spread the Cozmic Love in T shirt form!

Thanks for spreading the love! 

New DJ Residencies!

(25 Wharf St)  all summer long.  Alongside her weekly Thursday Funk filled Drake One Fifty (150 York)  and her 3rd Saturday dancefloor throwdown CHERRY BOMB at Round Venue (152 Augusta) , Cozmic has added a new 5th Saturday at The Piston (967 Bloor) with Dj John Caffery at Queer Nation. See you on the dancefloor! 

ONE EPIC PARTY 

FREEDOM ALBUM RELEASE, top floor of the Royal Ontario Museum.

There was one party in 2019 that stood out from the rest and went the extra mile in terms of making us all feel the CozmicLove. The FREEDOM album release party, which was graciously made possible by events programmer and super nice guy CHRIS KENNEDY at the Royal Ontario Museum took place on Friday Oct 4th... and  it was truly a night to remember. Featuring cuts from the album, a merch table to die for, dance and singing/ rapping performances from Dara Hidalgo,  Jay Light and C. Paige (NYC) , the event was incredible vibes and more than we ever dreamed of in terms of an album release. Thank you all to those who came out, danced, bought merch, and also to those who sent their vibes and support from across the miles for the album release! 

New Tracks!
