Born in Canada, and growing up in such varied places as East Africa, The South Pacific , Nova Scotia and Ontario, Cozmic Cat aka Paula Burrows absorbed global rhythms from a traveling family and became obsessed with music at an early age. After completing her degree at McMaster University, she traveled to Philadelphia and became immersed in the vibrant music scene there for over 9 years. Inspired by labels such as Giant Step, Eight Ball, Mo' Wax, Cajual , Brownswood and Strictly Rhythm, she promoted events and managed Street Teams, all the while throwing her own small parties with djs, percussionists and live musicians. She was experimenting with electronica, hiphop and funk while sharing the love of music, vinyl and the dj scene. Coz learned about the roots of Jazz, Soul, Funk and House Music from some of Philly's deepest crate diggers with a passion that translated into her eclectic yet smooth DJ sets and eventually led to several awards and a full time career in the business.
Now, with over a decade in experience in everything from warehouse parties to clubs, bars, and festivals, Cozmic Cat is back in Toronto as artistic director and head of her own record label and production company Jupiter Productions. Her tracks have been signed to several local and international dance music record labels and appear on compilations worldwide.
